Twelve groups will perform in these four venues from 9pm till close at 3am. The music encompasses a wide array of genres, including jazz, rock’n’roll, Afro Beat, Latin, Kraut Rock, lounge, funk and folk.

Featured acts are the Modern Afro Beat Quintet, the Ill Phonics, The Flower Orphans, the Raskolnikovs, Zirkus, Jonathan Crayford, the Sambassadors, Green Herring, Sans Souci, Twinset and the Norman Meehan Quartet.
