The event has been moved to the field next to the pub due to the success of the last two years of the festival.

Headlining the festival is the Daventry band Got It Covered. A rock covers band formed in mid 2012 and consists of Olly Eldershaw on vocals, Karl Thomas and Andy Gilbert, guitar, Adam Wright, bass and Chris Patterson on drums. They have been inspired by the likes of Green Day, Kings of Leon and Stereophonics.

Also performing is DJ Ted Nilsson a Swedish born and bred learned DJ and producer who has been honing his trade for 15 years. He left his native Sweden for Spain 10 years ago, where residencies at various clubs such as Space and Pacha in the Canary Islands and London Underground with Brandon Block ensued.

Since 2010 Ted has had tracks and remixes featured on over five Hed Kandi compilations including Hed Kandi Live: Es Paradise Ibiza Opening Party 2014

The 2014 Ibiza Summer season sees Ted taking the Wednesday residency in the Global Room at Pacha, Ibiza as well as performances in Amnesia’s Mainroom for “Together”. His charismatic DJ style and standout productions are earning him a deserved reputation and as such he has gigs lined up everywhere from Scandinavia to Europe and beyond.

Also performing are tribute band Guns to Roses, Motorcity String Band, and Hats Of To LED ZEPPELIN, a tribute band. This will be the band’s second year of performing at the festival. Tribute bands Kings OV Leon and Fleetwood Bac complete the line up.

A spokesman for the festival said: “This year the festival is being moved into a field next to the pub, due to the huge success we’ve had over the past two years the pub car park is no longer suitable for the volume of people who attend.

“We are having a custom built stage & lighting sponsored by Juice Sound and Light.”

Entrance is £5 with under 16s free. Camping is available and the cost is £10 per pitch. People are advised to pre-book their pitch and pay on the day. There will be two outside bars with plenty of food.

Other entertainment on the day to include face painting, inflatables, morris dancers, and fireworks to finish.
