We're currently finalising the running order for our music this year. However, we can tell you that the following acts will be performing.
Generation Jones : the mellow sound of acoustic guitar and tight, smooth vocal harmonies - influenced by the work of James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, John Martyn, and Lennon and McCartney.
Charlbury Morris : (off stage) enjoy traditional Cotswold Morris style that is based on dance traditions from villages and towns as recorded by the legendary Cecil Sharp in the early 20th century.
Torrin : not-to-be-missed winner of The Voice Kids 2021.
The Shakedown Prophets : possibly Oxfordshire's hardest-working R&B band.
Knights of Mentis : nine piece band based out of Oxford playing roots, folk, country and americana.
Seven O'Clock Junkies : two bands in one! Originals and covers of classics from the likes of REM.
Hope and Glory : Ska mad! Back by popular demand! Expect a roof raising set of ska and rude boy classics from this amazing seven-piece band.
