This year's Grooves on the Green, Doreset's longest running community festival, sees the popular weekend of family-friendly live music, food and drink expanded to include an 80s Night to open proceedings on Friday 21 June, before the familiar all-day line ups on Saturday and Sunday 22 and 23 June.


Opening night is an 80s special – with full fancy dress encouraged – and headlined by well-known Queen tribute Majesty with support from local outfit BH-Rock

Saturday headliners The Decatonics are a gutsy, female-fronted eight-piece ska band who have played a host of festivals and supported ska legends The Skatalites, The Beat and Neville Staple, as well as The Undertones. Also on the bill are local favourites Brass Monkeys, Soulhole and All Rocked Up, with the Killerz tribute act and a rare outing for Volatile Agents, the medical marvels whose line-up includes doctors, surgeons, theatre medics and a member of the judiciary.

Sunday gets underway in the company of everyone's favourite ukulele party starters, the Mother Ukers with big-voiced rocker Chris Payn, energetic covers band The Few and ska regulars Rat Race lining up before south coast rockers SOS take the headline slot.



Adult weekend (3 days) £18 plus booking fees

Adult weekend (2 days) £15 plus booking fees

Youth 5-16 years weekend (2 days) £6 plus booking fees
