Festival goers will enjoy dozens of artists from all over the world performing in a 100% socially responsible festival. More than just a music festival, the event is described as a celebration of live music, theatre, poetry, film, circus, dance and visual arts. A vibrant handcraft market, family-friendly performances and KidZone as well as the interactive art and dialogue space, The Barn, combine to create a magically eclectic three day entertainment experience.

Already for this year's event, artists from over 10 countries have been confirmed including diverse acts such as the much-loved and 70's inspired Bogota based Colombian Salsa artists, La 33, Mokoomba (Zimbabwe), Under Kontrol (France), Red Five Point Star (Slovenia) and Imperial Tiger Orchestra (Switzerland).
