Expect a strong and diverse line-up of (mainly) acoustic acts performing on two stages.

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'.

2014 will be Wood's 'Year Of The Badger'. The festival focuses on a different indigenous  wild animal each year. Badgers are getting a particularly hard time at the moment with the government trying to shoot them all because of they haven't researched the spread of TB properly.

In the words of Kindling tent organizer (and environmental author) Hugh Warwick, “In a healthy environment you can have a healthy population of badgers; when it is degraded as it is by industrial farming, both badgers and livestock suffer.”

Wood will be highlighting their plight at the festival as well as all things wonderful about badgers and their very important role in the countryside.
