Those making the trip should expect a truly mixed musical bag with mainstream rock, salsa, punk, reggae, Balkan, dub, blues and electronic all getting a look in.
And what of the electronic performances? Aside from a scattering of drum & bass and techno across the main stage from LTJ Bukem, Sub Focus, Speedy J and Alexander Kowalski, the place for the discerning dance fans looks to be the Go Dutch stage which will host a number of key labels and DJs over the weekend.
