Thousands of festival-goers will be descending on the grounds of Standon Lordship, situated to the east of Stevenage and not far from Ware, over the course of the next three days as dozens of acts perform across 10 stages.

Ella Eyre and Little Dragon play the Main Stage tonight, while The Dandy Warhols, Roots Manuva and DJ Yoda are some of the stand out names from Saturday’s line-up – when the ‘day to night’ fancy dress party will be in full swing.
