As always, Blissfields has a theme each year and encourages attendees to lose themselves in fancy dress of the most absurd festival garb. This year's theme has been announced as 'The Director's Cut' with the festival celebrating all things film in it's 13th year, from the early talkies to VIP Hollywood parties.
