Confirmed venues include pubs from the Style & Winch, Market House, the Royal Albion, to the Flower Pot, Drakes, the White Horse and the Duke of Marlborough, to restaurants including the Herbalist and Junipers, Pizza Express Live and Frederics.
Artists, many of whom are returning to the festival and hail from Kent, include Salvation Jayne, The Gallerys, Funke & the 2 Tone Baby, The Ovines ,the Lowly Strung, the Devil's Prefects, Holly Henderson, Oskar Vilcrow and Some Kind of Metallica.
More acts will be announced in the coming months.
