Port Eliot: First 2018 Headliner Confirmed: Baxter Dury

Festival Crowd Header

We're really excited to announce that Baxter Dury, creator of one of the great records of 2017, will headline the Caught by the River stage on the first day of the festival in 2018.

Released last month, ‘Prince of Tears’ is a beautifully orchestrated record, full of vitriol and heartbreak, introducing the unrivalled bravado of ‘Miami’ and culminating in the emotional finale of the title song.


Baxter Dury will headline on Thursday, which is only available to weekend ticket holders, so it's well worth booking an extra day off and joining us for the biggest Thursday of music since the festival began.
