Sunrise Celebration ticket holders will now have free entry to The Big Chill.* See www.bigchill.net/ for further details.

The legendary performer whose poetic style of songwriting influenced a whole generation of songwriters, making him one of the most unforgettable figures in the history of music. Made famous by songs such as Chelsea Hotel, Suzanne and the infamous Hallelujah, and with a career spanning five decades, Leonard Cohen was still one of the most respected and revered musicians around until his death in November 2016 at the age of 82.
Leonard Cohen tour dates
Barratt and Fielding created the characters of Vince Noir and Howard Moon in the upstairs room of a North London pub back in the '90s. Their Edinburgh Festival debut in 1998 won them the much coveted Perrier Award for Best Newcomer and they have since gone on to take BBC TV by storm, whilst picking up more awards for live shows along the way. 'A big bouffant-haired corker of a show' (The Times)
The Mighty Boosh tour dates
Norman Jay is unquestionably one of the most respected and popular DJs in the world today. Co-founder of the legendary Good Times Sound System and London dance music station KISS FM, Jay fostered the ‘Rare Groove’ scene pushing the boundaries of the UK’s emerging club culture.
Awarded an MBE for services to DJing and music, he recently compiled his most eclectic compilation to date, ‘Good Times Skank & Boogie’. He continues to tour around the UK, converting generations of clubbers to the cause, championing new sounds, yet never forgetting his musical roots, thus guaranteeing nothing but ‘Good Times’.

Now rebooted as a foursome after a brief spell as a three-piece, Mercury Prize-nominated Portico Quartet have always been an impossible band to pin down. Sending out echoes of jazz, electronica, ambient music and minimalism, the group have created their own singular, cinematic sound over the course of five albums, from 2007 debut Knee-Deep in the North Sea to the recent, brilliant Living Fields.
Portico Quartet tour dates
'Undisputed standard-bearers of electronic music', the aptly-titled Thievery Corporation borrow their music from all walks, from psychedelic rock to reggae, house to ambient - no vinyl is safe from the thievery. The duo have spent their time since their inception wisely founding a music empire that is truly something to behold.
Thievery Corporation tour dates
Musical deity and comedic visionary? Bath-born founder member of The Rubber Bishops and one of the top stand-up comedians in Britain today. He was winner of the Best Live Stand Up 1999 Award, and spent six years as team captain on BBC TV's Never Mind the Buzzcocks. Bill also starred in the sitcom Black Books and had his own series on BBC2 entitled Is it Bill Bailey?
Bill Bailey tour dates
There are hardly any bands performing today that genuinely deserve the adjective ‘legendary’. Buzzcocks are one of those very few. Their achievements are staggering: one of the original holy trinity of British punk (with the Sex Pistols and the Clash), innovators of the independent record scene and genuine punk rock superstars who have been cited as inspirational by bands as diverse as REM, Nirvana and Green Day. Eight studio albums, over twenty singles and EPs, a constellation of compilations, covers by other bands and songs on film soundtracks and advertisements have put Buzzcocks among the top echelons of British recording artists. A Mojo Inspiration award in 2006 is just one of the many accolades they have received for their work.
Buzzcocks tour dates
The acclaimed experimental Japanese recording artist and producer, taking his name from the Planet Of The Apes character.
Cornelius tour dates
Rare is the band that can captivate both punk rock kids and folk music fans. Rare still is a band that can do this by playing a ferocious combination of traditional blues, Appalachian folk, and ragged gospel. But The Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir does just that.
