The evening concert is from Daphne's Flight (pictured above). On Sunday the afternoon concert is from up-and-coming band Merry Hell, and to close the event on Sunday evering are Oysterband.
Festival organizer Scott Butler said "having Oysterband as our final act is the perfect way to close the festival this year. They are by far one of the most oft requested artists by our audience and certainly one my personal favourite folk rock acts. It was my love of folk rock that inspired the very first festival in 1999 and Oysterband are masters of the genre."
