“The festival would not be possible without the help of Blue Shed Studios who provided the bands and stage, which contribute greatly to the weekend’s success.

“We would like to thank the many volunteers and sponsors who make the whole thing possible and also the public for attending in such large numbers to make the event such a success.”
