A family friendly festival with 5 stages hosting around 100 acts, including a new comedy tent this year and various other forms of entertainment. The festival takes place on a spectacular site just a few miles across the Tamar south of Plymouth, only a 10 minute walk along a cliff path down to the beach. Camping is in settlements with flushing toilets, portaloos, compost toilets and hot showers. Fresh water is available on the campsite and from the shower area.

The line-up for Thursday includes Ecco Jones, Lemanis, Bert Miller and the Animal Folk, Martin Harley Band, and Imperial Leisure. Friday sees performances from Hillside Heroes, MC Fashion, Yes Sir Boss, Carus and True Believers, Rosie and the Goldbug, New York Ska Jazz Ensemble, and Dreadzone. Saturday has Rosie Oddie and the Odd Squad, Vince Lee and the Big Combo, Scribes, Sunfish, Ruarri Joseph Band, Neck, and The Beat. Sunday's line-up includes 6 Day Riot, Circus of Sound, Kangaroo Moon, Asere, and Mad Dog McRae. For the line-up details, stage and day splits as available please click here.

The comedy line-up will include Dave Thompson, Pierre Collins, and Rob Riley.

Tickets can no longer be purchased online, they will be available for cash only on the gate. An adult weekend ticket is priced at £80; youth (16-18yrs) £50, children (under 16yrs) are free. Youth, child and infant tickets may only be purchased in conjunction with full paying adults.

As well as entertainment there are workshops for all ages including circus skills, drumming, potting, weaving, bush craft, dance and more. A natural therapies area with Reiki, crystals, shiatsu, as well as children's entertainers and activities. There will also be a good range of shops and stalls on site with clothing, jewellery and wacky festival stuff of all kinds.

The organisers have created a Green Team who aim to ensure that all rubbish is recycled where possible. When you arrive, you'll be given bags so that you can sort your rubbish out and revellers get to party with a conscience!

Any profits from the festival will be going to the Rame Conservation Trust.
