+ A host with the most!

* The vibe of the music will progress and change through the day. We'll start the day off quite chilled with acoustic stuff before warming it up with the Hip Hop, Indie and Funk etc, ending with a couple of hours of Drum and Bass, Breakbeat and Electro from the DJs. The set list will be available nearer the time of the event so people know when to turn up to catch their favourites. Though we'd like to think most Exmouthians are open minded enough to make a day of it and give all the music a shot, as it's all good!

* There will be a 96ftx8ft graffiti wall. Throughout the day some of the countries finest graffiti artists will be working on filling the wall with spectacular pieces and murals for everyone to admire. They will also be selling totally original canvases and t-shirts, so if you fancy grabbing a fresh garm or piece of art, it'll be there for you!

* To tie in with the urban vibe that many of our acts are bringing to the festival, we'll have some of Exeter Uni's Breakdance crew! They'll be flexing their moves on stage while the DJs play.

* Stalls

* Good food for those who get hungry and want to try something new.

* A bar for everyone who wants to sink a few cold drinks.

* The setup will look a little something like this (not to scale) -

The Rugby Club has a 500 capacity. This means NO more than 500 are aloud in the event at one time. To avoid disappointment buy a ticket from OnionHeart or arrive fairly early in the day, or you may be refused entry. You have been warned!
