This annual international festival usually takes place in May. Beginning on Thursday evening and continuing until late afternoon on Saturday, it includes activities for all the family on six different stages or activity centers. Thursday is a more intimate evening so people can chill out after a week’s work, putting up tents etc. On Friday from morning till the early hours and on Saturday from morning till 17:00 one can enjoy a marathon of concerts and activities on a variety of stages with jam sessions of all types in every possible corner. Festival tickets include entrance to all concerts, sessions, dance and music workshops, story tent, yoga, tai chi, swimming, crafts fair, parking and free camping. The majority of the activities and the Main Stage concerts are held outside. Patrons are advised to bring blankets or low chairs for outdoor activities.
Onsite rooms are available, but tend to get filled up by February, so it is wise to book early. A wide choice of B&B accommodation is available in the area. Ticket sales begin in March and a full schedule of the activities is available in April.
