“As always, we’ll be bringing you a great mix of familiar and acclaimed artists alongside our favourite new discoveries. Wander down to the Boathouse where Caught by the River presents legendary DJs and live bands. Catch a world music luminary or indie’s finest on the Park Stage. The nearby Ace of Clubs devotes a night to Cornish acts followed by the best club bands around and there are more eclectic surprises in the Walled Garden and the Orangery, from synthpop to brass bands.

Down by the viaduct we serve foot stompin’, honky tonkin’ good time music at The Black Cow Saloon. You can bathe in the beautiful acoustics of a show in the Church and when the sun goes down on the Bowling Green, there’ll be family-friendly fun with the Ceilidh Liberation Front.

TS Eliot wrote, “You are the music / While the music lasts.” And if you head for the Boogie Round you can be you/the music till the sun comes up again.”
