The attractions include four performance stages powered by ecologically sound energy sources. The Dance and Band main stages provide a range of musical styles showcasing local and national acts. The Acoustic stage features a wide variety of local talent; and the ever-popular Ambient Lounge hosts a selection of more chilled tunes and experimental sounds, live PAs interspersed with a series of diverse DJ sets.

There are also activities aimed at children and young people, a large selection of stalls selling everything from clothes to furniture, picnic area, a craft area, countryside zone, and a quiet space offering alternative therapies. Catering stalls sell food and beverages throughout the day, and 2002 saw the addition of a licensed bar from the local Hogs Back Brewery.

The Ambient Picnic has always sets out to inform as well as entertain. Alongside various Arts Workshops for all ages, the Ecozone provides information on alternative energy and ecological solutions, environmental issues, recycling awareness and Countryside information.
