May day Bank Holiday Sunday will see an amazing multi-floored event packed with live music, DJs and of course, cider – in the Exeter Roots Music and Cider Festival! Headlining the event is Black Slate, a Reggae band who originally formed back in 1974 and quickly became one of the most prominent names in the fore front of the UK Reggae scene of the 70′s and early 80′s.

Also playing are Babar Luck’s World Citizen Folk Band, New Riot, Peachy Farmer, Hot Dub Bikini Party, Full Melts, DJ Ricardo and more. In the beer garden the award winning Sanford Orchards, winner of best British Cider Brewer 2010 will have a bar that will be serving up a range of the best cider you’ll ever taste including Devon Red (Silver Medal, Taste of West 2010).
