We’re delighted to announce the first round of acts for this year’s music and food extravaganza. Providing the summer soundtrack will be BRIT-Award winning singer KT Tunstall, pop purveyors The Feeling and hip hop wonder kids Rizzle Kicks with a Saturday night headline set from legendary dance duo Basement Jaxx. Feastival favourites Norman Jay MBE and The Cuban Brothers will also be back with their own unique dose of good times.

Not to be outdone by our rock ‘n’ roll stars, our favourite kitchen superstars will be cooking up a storm all weekend. Joining Jamie Oliver in the Electrolux Big Kitchen will be his Italian mentor Gennaro Contaldo, culinary maestro Bruno Loubet, top British chefs Valentine Warner and Mark Sargeant, Supper Club sensation Sabrina Ghayour and talented foodie Gizzi Erskine amongst a whole host of others.

In between watching the experts in action, visitors can delve to new depths of culinary delight down Street Food Alley, tucking into an exciting menu of dishes featuring the best of the British street food scene. Highlights include Asian steamed buns from double award winning stand Yum Bun, mouthwatering meatballs from The Bowler and Napoli inspired street food from Pizza Pilgrims, with many more to be announced.

It’s not just about tasting great food, festival goers can get stuck in with hands-on foodie features including the Electrolux Chefs’ Secrets Cooking Classes, the Weber BBQ Experience, The Table Sessions and of course, the return of Alex James’s very own Cheese Hub. What’s more, you can shop till you drop from an award winning selection of artisan producers and boutique brands.
