The two main Apollo and Saturn stages timed to ensure no clashes, no one need miss any of the fantastic acts over the weekend. What's more, the other stages have this year been scheduled (according to organisers) to avoid any painful decisions, giving festival goers the best chance to catch as much music as possible.

The line-up is now complete, however there's still an array of other late night entertainment, attractions and on-site events to be announced in the coming weeks to go alongside the fairground rides, stalls, DJs, Discos and cinema.

The event has one main arena with a stage at either end of the site, as well as a few smaller stages. The two main outdoor stages, will have around a dozen acts alternating between one stage and another to keep the music continuous, whilst not having two acts playing at the same time.
