The brand-new festival will take place on the 17th and 18th of August, where many attendees will be hoping the weather can match the star-studded line-up.

Gallagher will be performing fresh from his UK number one album As You Were, which completely took the nation by storm last year, whilst Welsh veterans Stereophonics will also be playing at the festival fresh from their latest album release, Scream Above the Sounds, which dropped last October.

Although an emphasis has been put on Rock and Indie music, the festival will contain many artists which will span over almost every genre of music. Here’s the low-down of what to expect.

Kicking things off on Friday will be Liverpool-formed Indie band Circa Waves. Expect to hear tracks from the boys’ latest album Different Creatures, including the hard-hitting single ‘Fire That burns’ which was ranked ‘Hottest record in the World’ in 2017 by BBC Radio 1’s Mistajam. Highly esteemed anthems from their earlier works can also be anticipated, with the likes of ‘T-Shirt Weather’ and ‘Stuck In My Teeth’ certain to stir the crowd into a frenzy.

An emanation of music will continue throughout the day as South London trio Disciples will be gracing Essex with their smooth, toe-tapping house tracks that are sure to keep your feet moving until the sun sets with their hit-singles such as ‘On My Mind’ and ‘How Deep is Your Love’.

Plan B, whose real name is Ben Drew, also features on Friday’s line-up. The insanely talented musician is set to entertain the hoards of music lovers, with classics ‘She Said’ and ‘Stay Too Long’ more than likely to be hitting home with the crowds. Drew will be eager to perform hits from his new album Heaven Before All Hell Breaks Loose, due to drop on May 4th.

Shifting over to Saturday, Years & Years will be performing live, with crowd-favourites ‘Desire’, ‘King’ and ‘Shine’ sure to make waves. The trio have not released an album for three years, and so many fans will be eager to see one of their first performances since their hiatus, with their latest release ‘Sanctify’sure to thrill.

Offering her mood-boosting vocals and beats to the festival will be London-born singer and songwriter RAYE, who will also grace the stage on the Saturday. The BRIT school attendee hopes to have the whole festival dancing with her voice over groovy beats. Her collaboration with Jax Jones on the former UK number one ‘You Don’t Know Me’ is a given to get the crowd moving.

The talent coming from London is unmissable this year, as Bastille are sure to create memories on the final day. With news that the boys are currently in the studio writing for their third album, there should be no doubt that the ‘Pompeii’ creators will put on one hell of a show.

The two-day event will offer weekend camping for customers. If the August weather lives up to expectation, then this is an opportunity that cannot be missed.
