With the ‘Blues Band of the Year' for 2nd year running..... BABAJACK headlining the Saturday, and with a special appearance from the ALARM guitarist and now bluesman, Dave Sharp. His 15 years living in New Orleans – playing and recording as a sessionplayer on the blues circuit has developed his successful career beyond the punk days of the Alarm to this accomplished, gritty, blues artist that is always in demand.
BABAJACK – a band who is fast becoming one of the most sought after acts on the UK and European gig and Festival circuits! Their unique blend of roots/blues/folk fusion described by Classic Rock magazine as “an intoxicating brew of blues, folk and roots music” make for a scintillating show combining great musicianship, passion and energy that is guaranteed to wow any audience.

Sicknote Steve plays his one man show Saturday afternoon and Pat Grover and his boogie woogie blues band play Saturday Evening, as does the seasoned pro bluesmen from Cardiff going under a suedo name Mellow Down Easy , for the first time.

The former rail line RUNS FROM The Berrington hill Cwmtwrch to Cwmllynfell, the transformation over 5 years is amazing. All powered by solar and the real ale barn is made from the wood of the felled trees. An outdoor earth stage, huge big lodge tipi and Chinese marquees make this a delightful riverside walk as well as a camping site. Well worth a day out.
