With the announcement, Simon Adamson, the festival’s director, said: “It’s great to be making our first full announcement as we look ahead to the summer. This year was a great success, so we are augmenting the festival across all areas whilst retaining the spirit and ethos of The Magic Loungeabout, which resonated so strongly with everyone.
“There was lots of brilliant feedback, which we have listened to and will be implementing. It’s a really exciting time for everyone involved with the festival – I can’t wait for us to be back!”
