The majority of the festival is dominated by a diverse local music scene, with many home-grown headliners such as Hot Club De Paris and 747s, Tramp Attack, and 28 Costumes.

Headliners include Shack, Liam Frost & the Slowdown Family, Son of Dave, The Longcut, Bromheads Jacket and ex-Beta Band – The Aliens, as well as Radio One DJ Gilles Peterson presenting the 43 piece Heritage Orchestra, and Seu Jorge & AfroReggae too. For the full line-up, see below:
