It isn't just music, as the festival is also famous for it's arts, theatre and literature.  

In the comedy arena, there will be stars like Jack Dee, Rich Hall, Lee Nelson and Tim Minchin.

They are also extending the children's areas, with a Children's Arena and an Inbetweeners Area for teenagers.

Sharon Reuben, Childen's Arena booker said: 'Each year the Children's Arena gets bigger and better, thanks in part to the hard work and commitment from local organisations to give festival goers a child-friendly, family experience that entertains, educates and liberates.  As well as providing fantastic facilities for kids in the Children's Arena we are delighted to announce the return of the Inbetweeners Teen Arena.'
