Soundscape Solar Stage

From a hobby with a band to a renowned solar powered stage and venue. Renewable energy is the future. We were there at the beginning of the self-sufficient, off grid generation and following the UK trend in renewable's, we believe a quiet, clean source of power accentuates the intimacy of the music we present. With over 15 years experience running an Eco friendly outdoor venue, we welcome you to a musical extravaganza.

Crispy Disco

Dedicated to one of the original members of the tribe - Crispian Baker, the Crispy disco has something for everyone featuring an array of headlining acts all weekend...and maybe a bit of punk aerobics first thing to get your day started!

Sunrise

Born from the legendary northern psy night 'Sunrise' hosted in partnership with The Beats Bizarre providing alternative beats and rhythms as a contrast to psytrance with the best in bass, breaks, electro, glitch, tech funk and electro swing...and more...
Dedicated to promoting the very best in music, visuals and atmosphere we pride ourselves in our vibrant and musically varied space enhanced by our unique and stand out visuals, top notch production and effervescent decor. See you on the dance floor :-)

Lunar

Pushing the boundaries of drum & bass, Funktion One soundsystem, indoor and outdoor laser shows, Lunar hosted by Random Concept and Looney Tunez has it all.

The Tipsy Traveller

If you happen to stumble across the Tipsy Traveller Bar, do be sure to venture inside. Before you will stand a fine selection of local Ales, handcrafted Ciders and what ever your favourite tipple is, rest assured you will find it here. A welcome space for you to come and sit, share drinks with friends or as a great meeting point for further adventures into the festival.

Big Dub Cafe

Our 24 hr Big Top venue serves up tea and snacks throughout the night, stand up, acoustic sets, djs and a few other little suprises to be found if you pop in for a cuppa and a warm.

The Busk Stop

Our latest addition, come and have a play! In between Samba bands, yodelling, spoken word and everything else we've got going on here there'll be room for you to take to the stage.

Family Area

The world renowned, fantastical Earthbound Misfits host our kids area providing an exciting range of free activities to entertain kids of all ages involving educational workshops circus skills, a family disco and of course, lots of bubbles, laughs and fun!

Healing Corner

Relax, recharge and energise in our Healing Corner where you'll find Yoga, Shamanic meditation, Runic knowledge, vocal workshops, hypnotherapy, massage, tarot, Reiki...and the list goes on! And new for 2018 we are looking to introduce a Sauna to our Freshen Up corner where you can get yourself clean and comfortable- our big bucket standing bath became a thing!

Heritage Crafts

Greenwood work, flute making, rope work workshops, drum circles and willow weaving,
Chainsaw carving, wand making, pot throwing and heritage history reading,
Demonstrations and workshops, come and get involved,
There's something for everyone, whether you consider yourself young or old!

Equinox Central Fire

The heart of our festival- our beautiful seated firepit area hosts our opening ceremony each year where we light our central fire. It's a great place to sit, chat, warm and watch the stars...there's nothing quite like watching stars fom inside a hill, in front of a fire, with friends.

...much more to be added as we update our website for 2018...keep watching!
