Its not all about the food...by day get the festival vibe with live music on the Lime Kiln stage and buskers around the harbour.


Lime Kiln Stage

The Lime Kiln stage, located right next to the harbour, has music throughout the afternoon on Friday and all day on Saturday and Sunday. Stop a while, enjoy a drink at the bar and be entertained by an eclectic mix of local folk, funk, jazz and choirs

We’re delighted to be working with BBC Music Introducing in Cornwall to programme this stage.

BBC Music Introducing supports unsigned, undiscovered, and under the radar artists. The local BBC Music Introducing programmes on the BBC’s 40 Local Radio stations find and support local musicians, giving them a platform for their material.  By registering with BBC Music Introducing artists could get their music played on BBC local and network radio, and could be invited to perform on BBC Music Introducing stages at local and national festivals.
