I love this festival because of the amazing atmosphere made by the people who come. There's loads of brilliant music; we're music-lovers so we make sure it's always really great music. We love having the support of so many local people in the Purbecks and we're lucky to have a fabulous venue at Purbeck Valley Farm. Best of all, there's a wonderful feeling among people who are here to enjoy the music."
