The event set in and around an ancient Iron Age hill fort near Usk in Monmouthshire will from Friday 12th until Sunday 14th August 2011 play see Main Stage performances from Luke Concannon, Jimmy Davis, Posh Boy, Ed Sheeran, RSVP, and Tankus the Henge on Friday.

Saturday's line-up sees Steve Knightly present Show of Hands, Rodney Branigan, and Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin, with Christopher Rees, and Tin Roots also confirmed.

On Sunday the famous solar powered Big Top will be home to Rory McLeod, a Tea Dance with The BeauBowBelles and LosPadres, Biggles, Goodnight Lenin, Dizraeli and the Small Gods, and The Beat.

The weekend which is ideal for families and first time festival goers also has a Second Stage which will play host to Maya, RSVP, The Pengillys, The Momeraths, Easy and The Cali Five, Mad Dog Mcrea, Andy Peat, Boat Band, The Muleskinners, The Phoenix Rose, Richard O'Flynn, Stealing Sheep, Evi Vine, The Velcro Teddybears, and Agent K.

Croissant Neuf boasts some seriously innovative green solutions including an entirely solar powered site, organic food, organic tipples at the Stagger Inn and a promise that three trees will be planted onsite for every car that brings guests to the festival. An Environmental Audit commissioned for last year’'s festival showed that Summer Party festival goers generated on average less than 50% of the CO2 than if they’d stayed at home and had a normal weekend.

An adult ticket is priced at £88 for a weekend adult ticket, with children aged 5 to 15 tickets priced at £35. Student tickets are priced at £70, and under 5s can go for free. Day tickets will available at a later date, and camping is free.

As well as great music expect internationally renowned street theatre, workshops of all kinds from dancing to bushcraft, open mic sessions, sports activities, and more.

Run by a family with families in mind, Croissant Neuf Summer Party creates a safe, welcoming haven to take the kids to. The community spirit is as prevalent as the green ethos that permeates the festival. As with last years event, all of the facilities on site - the venues, eateries, bar, toilets and general lighting (basically everything) are completely solar powered.
