Eggsville is one of the many installations tangled in the trees.
We hosted the Big Top on Friday.
US Girls where one of the acts who played our stage.

This was Lionlimb’s first ever UK show, in the Tipi Tent. Go see them.

Joanna Newsom closed the festival on Sunday night. Well, just before Teenage Fanclub.
