On Saturday, August 20 the 1980s is the decade of the day, headlined by the legendary Billy Ocean.

Completing the line-up will be, Bananarama, Roland Gift from the Fine Young Cannibals, Living In A Box, Nick Heyward, Hue and Cry and Doctor and the Medics, plus the special afternoon guest Paul Carrack.

The weekend’s finale on Sunday, August 21 will be headlined by none other than Jools Holland.

Joining him on the bill will be special guest Chris Difford of Squeeze, along with Ruby Turner, Louise Marshall, and Beth Rowley.

For the second year running, festival organisers have decided to expand the facilities to include a silent disco which will take place after the event from 11pm through until 2am.
