On Friday they had the opportunity to discover live the folk duo Lilly Wood & The Prick , rappers Breakers Flowters, Abd Al Malik , the pop of the South African Jain, the brasshouse Americans Too Many Zooz, the voice of the South African trio the Soil , plus indie pop from Lou Doillon.
On Saturday the show continued with the inevitable Charlie Winston taking charge at the Salahin stage of the festival,playing his folk pop. On his side, the brotherly duo Bigflo & Oli crossed the electro sound of Acid Arab followed by many other performers.
At the end of the music festival, on Sunday, the tunes fired up the crowds.
