CHECK BACK HERE FOR NEW ACT ANNOUNCEMENTS!
Hyde Family Jam
“Folk gone wrong” At first glance you might expect these guys to be a tradional folk band but you couldn’t be further from the truth. The reality is more of a bonkers, turbo-fuelled barn dance of crazy cover versions from all genres. They play fast and loud and are nailed-on, pure entertainment!
12-piece supergroup featuring members of Bad Manners, East Park Reggae Collective, The Hallé Orchestra and Glastonbury regulars, New York Brass Band. A nailed-on festival highlight in the making, their explosive and unique live show blends ska pressure, dub and global rhythms with some seriously heavy brass.
“Infectious and seriously funky”

Will Cassette Jam (DJ set)
DJ / Producer / Remixer duo Cassette Jam exploded onto the Global Dance Scene after Winning the Cream International Search for a DJ Competition in 2006. Through the late 00s and early 10s they played all over the world at some of the biggest clubs and festivals alongside residencies at Cream Ibiza, Ibiza Rocks, The Dirty Disco and Chibuku Shake Shake. They also enjoyed regular radio coverage on Radio 1 & 6, Kiss FM, Galaxy and MTV Dance.
Will will be hitting the decks for us for a DJ set on Saturday!
Rolling Social, the team behind The Leeds Rum, Whisky and Tequila Festivals held at the Corn Exchange will be running a ‘Cocktail 101’ masterclass on Saturday. Hosted by the legendary Lee Jones, participants will be shown how to make one classic cocktail and then get to have a go at creating a twist of their own. With no experience required (but equally fine if you’re an expert!), the class promises to be great fun and is included in the price of your all-inclusive booze wristband.
Make sure your beloved ankle biters are present and correct on Saturday afternoon when queen of the high kicks, Craigy takes over the controls in the kids tent. She’ll be bringing fun and games alongside some cheesy bangers and play school jams for anyone with a bottomless appetite for snacks to let (it) go and shake some moves to.
