Big Love 2019

2019 festival poster.Big Love 2019 was our biggest – and arguably best – festival to date, with over 130 acts performing. It also saw the introduction of our new, much larger outdoor stage.

It’s very hard to pick highlights, but The Dutty Moonshine Big Band went down a storm, as did Dr. Meaker. There were loads of great performances from some emerging musical talent, including the amazing Rachel K Collier and the Beth Prior Collective.

We hope you got to enjoy Big Love festival 2019 with us, but if not, make sure you join us next time for our fabulous fifth birthday! You can check out this year’s line up, and we hope to see you in June!
