The two-day festival will run from 3pm to 11pm each day but will also include a children’s festival timeslot from 9am to midday. The festival is expected to draw 10,000 people. A portion of proceeds will be donated to local charities.

Nile Rodgers recently completed work producing the next Duran Duran album. The first single ‘Pressure Off’ will be released in September.
