Now in its 35th year, one of the world's premier roots music festivals is buoyed by a solo set from Nick Cave (above) on Saturday night. Loudon Wainwright III, Oysterband and country maverick Hal Ketchum also play that day, while the excellent James Taylor closes the festival on Sunday night. Friday sees the Saw Doctors and Norma Waterson & Martin Carthy at the top of the bill. Tickets are only available in advance, so don't turn up without one.
