“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 synth-pop 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 Walled Garden, there’ll be a family-friendly Ceilidh and Remix Reeling.

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.”
