Robert James (Recorded At The Forest)

The Melodic Distraction crew are also curating the night time programme at The Forest stage at this year’s festival to develop this into a new alternative area of music for festival punters

Formerly The Treehouse Stage, The Forest is an immersive corner of the festival. Melodic Distraction has booked names such as Manchester’s NIIX, Talking Drums and Bolts and Liverpool locals Otra and Outhouse Sounds to play a variety of alternate sets across the weekend. 

The Forest stage will also power the overnight broadcast programme of Gottwood Radio, beaming the sounds of the forest around the globe from 11pm all the way through the night.
