Headline acts for 2019 include The Waterboys (Thursday), Frank Turner (Friday); and host band Fairport Convention (Saturday).

Other major acts include Gogol Bordello on Thursday, Seth Lakeman (Friday) and Richard Thompson (Friday).

The line-up encompasses harmonies from female ensembles Wildwood Kin and Daphne’s Flight, instrumental virtuosity from Will Pound (harmonica), Eddy Jay (accordion) and Martin Simpson (guitar), and classic rock from Martin Barre and prog legends Caravan.

Lil Jim, Tors, The 4 of Us, Wilson & Wakeman, Richard Digance, Tide Lines and Zal Cleminson’s /sin'dogs/ complete the line-up.
