Talent includes Markus Meier, Jayne Denham, Amber Joy Poulton, Peter Baylor & The Roadhouse Romeos, Rough Cut, Chris Lee, Gunslinger,Rick Bartlett and Compere Gary Turner. There will be a merchandise tent on the grounds where fans can meet their favourite performers and buy CDs.

There will also be a young talent segment for aspiring performers between 13 and 20 years. For more information and entry form click here.
