Of his headline set, Richard Hawley has said: "I am so chuffed to have been asked to headline this festival... mainly I am looking forward to making the folks happy at a great event like this, big old castle, ancient Jurassic coast, rock'n'roll, poetry and theatre."
The theme for this year's event is 'Around The World'. The festival's curator, Rob da Bank says: "Hip-hip hooray! Here we are reaching our 6th birthday. Crack out the jelly and ice cream, unroll the Twister board and cover me in sticky pop if I'm not more excited than ever to be announcing our all ages extravaganza once more. As ever it's a veritable smorgasbord of talent."
