Complementing the musicians will be a host of DJs playing a sunshine selection of folk, rock, jazz, world and balearic for the perfect summer soundtrack.
DJs playing at the event are Chris Maude, Dr Sid, Rope DJs, Ole Smokey, Lee Ellis, Someperson, Charlie B, Chris Sutton and Alex Arditti.
As well as great music and art, festival-goers can expect a family friendly environment and a relaxed atmosphere in a beautiful setting that features a waterfront bar on a pond that has boats and fishing rods provided.
There will be a Kids Art Space where they can get creative and people from Upcycle Bee Creative will be helping them make art from recycled junk.
There will also be a diverse mix of local independent stalls including Glitterbugz body art, Hush Vintage with a dress up photo booth for the kids, Becnicks Wonder Emporium, Henna by Angela, Cyprium Jewellery, Upcycle Bee Creative and The Mini Makery.
For the meat eaters Bunny BBQ will be serving up locally sourced top quality burgers and hot dogs and Satsuma Pop Up Bistro will be offering a vegetarian and vegan barbecue.
There will be real ale and ciders from Spitting Feathers and Azulito Coffee will be providing proper quality coffee served from an Italian APE cart.
