The event will also offer festival goers a cinema, a fair, market, jugglers, and the usual festival offerings. There will also be a campsite stage with new bands and DJ sets as well. The festival does not have a strict noise curfew, and so entertainment will run until late.

It is advised that the age minimum is 10 years old. If young children do attend it is recommend they wear ear protectors. Any under 14's must be accompanied by an adult ticket holder over 18 years old.
