Having been cancelled last year due to the pandemic the three-day festival was rescheduled for July, but postponed again after the delay of the so-called "freedom day" and the concerts were put back to September.

Friday will bring Soul II Soul to the headline spot, supported by The Brand New Heavies, Janet Kay and Carroll Thompson, Omar, Mad Yella, and Snowboy & The Latin Section.

Saturday's show is headlined by UB40, with support from Selecter, Stone Foundation, Rhoda Dakar, The Style Councillors and the Petty Thieves.
