In addition to the art market, street performers, magicians, live art, and workshops the festival with have three main stages: The Bandstand Stage, the Spoken Word Tent, and the Melting Pot Acoustic Stage. The Bandstand Stage will be headlined by East India Youth, an electro-pop (ish) outfit from London. Also on the lineup are Brother Goose, Spectral Park, The Crooked Beat, Hairy Hands and plenty more.
The Spoken Word Tent will see poetry from Dizraeli and Luke Wright, local talent from The Biscuit Poets and storytelling from Mike O’Leary.
A whole host of talent will be gracing the acoustic stage, all the while supplemented by the many family-friendly activities happening all over the park. Also, the word on the street is that the SEMSU DJs will be making an appearance in-between some of the acts performing on the bandstand.
