"It’s a very special year for us as we’re celebrating our sixth birthday and we’re marking the occasion by really going back to our roots," says founder Gareth Cooper. "It has to be our most diverse bill to date with amazing artists from across the globe packing every stage, from the woods to the main stage – it’s going to be incredible."
