Also on this year’s line-up will be local favourite Cosmo Jarvis, fresh off the back of touring Germany and making the Triple J ‘Hot 100’ in Australia. He will be joined by fellow Totnes based artist Ryan Keen – having toured recently with Ed Sheeran, and tipped by Radio 1’s Zane Lowe & Fearne Cotton as one of 2012’s Next Big Things.

Other acts across the three stages include former Quails front man Dan Steers’ new project These reigning Days, off the back of their 2012 single release ‘Changes’, London mod rockers The Moons and Cornwall based band Brother & Bones – who recently supported none other than Lemonfest favourite Ben Howard on his latest European tour. There will be more acts announced over the next few weeks, including a competition for a local act to open the main stage!
