Festival organiser Rob Da Bank still has a few aces up his sleeve, with the three headliners still to be announced - although they are expected in the next couple of weeks.

The Bollywood Cocktail Bar is set to make a welcome return, with Radio 1's Bobby & Nihal taking charge of proceedings. 

The Bees will host this year's Dub Cafe, treating late-night cainers to their record collection of dub and chilled grooves.

And a new acoustic arena has also been announced, the JD Set Lounge, which will see a number of intimate performances from some of the live acts already on site.

Along with a local school choir, the Women's Institute tea tent, a farmer's market, and loads more quirky attractions, it's shaping up to be another great festival!
