Join us for the festival's grande opening on FRIDAY 17th AUGUST - DOORS 7pm
Each day will be kicked-off with an "Adelphi Legend" and Friday's Legend is a true force of nature and the perfect person to cut the ribbon this year, the sensational - MATT EDIBLE!
INDOORS we have the unstoppable improvisation of SCHEIßEGELD headlining, fronted by the Beethoven of the North himself - STEVE COBBY.
As well as the pumping grooves of ENDOFLEVELBADDIE, the sweet funky rhythms of YOUNG JACK and post-punk aficionados LEFT AHEAD.
And is if that's not enough - the beautiful folk-inspired sounds of the stupendous PAVEY ARK will be floating down De Grey Street from our Outdoor Stage.

HEADLINER - a true festival headliner, and world-renowned recording artist, inventor, storyteller and performer, the wonderfully unique - THOMAS TRUAX!
Splendid magazine called him "one of the five or ten best singer/songwriters in the world that you've never heard of...an exceptional talent."

"Beguilingly Bizarre" -Uncut "Genius." -NME
"Thomas Truax is not of this earth...I still can't think of a single show I've seen that was as beguiling or as charming or as plain bananas as this one."
