Food and drink

Food Glorious Food!

The peeps at PeaceCake Cafe - led by avid festival foodie Selma - are providing the weekend's catering. The team's culinary international delights will be dished up from breakfast through to late evening, offering even the choosiest of campers a scrummy and reasonably priced pit stop


So you looked at this section first! Worry not, a well stocked bar is provided by Thirst Aid, overflowing with Real Ales, Cider, Lager, Wines and Spirits. Just remember - there's a whole festival to be enjoyed away from the bar!

Extra entertainment

Culture Tent

Give your ears a rest from all the music in our culture tent. Listen to live poets and laugh out loud to the comedians.


A firm favourite of IAS staff… until the post festival bruises surface.
