Back in 1982, Bruce Springsteen released 'Nebraska', a collection of sparsely recorded tracks originally intended as demos for his sixth studio album. Almost exactly 30 years later Clubhouse Records gathered 10 bands together to record the album's 10 tracks live to 4 track cassette tape, just like The Boss did back in the day. They then performed the whole thing to a sold-out audience in London. Now, exclusively for the festival, the album will be recreated live onstage once more. Joining the already announced Trevor Moss and Hannah Lou, The Dreaming Spires, Danny the Champ and Jack Day will be The Cedars, Case Hardin, The Redlands Palomino Company, Paul McClure, The Mad Staring Eyes, and The Arlenes.

The first acts confirmed were Friday headliner Mary Epworth, plus Danny and the Champions Of The World, Syd Arthur, Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou, Dreaming Spires, Washington Irving, Jali Fily Cissokho, Flights Of Helios, Ligers, Julie Hawk, Nick Cope, Jack Day, and Marcus Corbett.

Wood runs entirely on renewable energy and aims to highlight green issues and hopefully promote an ecologically friendly lifestyle, with things like composting toilets, showers heated by wood-burning stove, a people powered fairground, and a solar-powered stage and dancing into the night in a bicycle powered 'discotheque'. Workshops and activities this year include Make a Record Player from a Cardboard Box, Harmony Singing, and a Junk Samba Session.

Weekend tickets are priced at £75 for adults which includes camping and all workshops. There is also a teen ticket for ages 13-17 priced priced £65, children aged 12 and under will be able to go along for free! Parking is priced at £10. Campervan tickets are priced at £40.
