Patti Smith
Festival organisers said of the 'Godmother of Punk's booking, "We have been huge fans of Patti Smith's work for many years and to have her finally play our festival is frankly surreal and a real honour. There are few musicians whose names alone can evoke such a vast array of images, sounds and stories as Patti Smith's."
