One of the harbour’s best loved floating venues, and the perfect excuse to take a stroll down to Hotwells, the Grain Barge has been forging a reputation over the years for a hosting a great atmosphere at the festival.
The quayside music stage will be hosting an eclectic line-up as ever, featuring everything from indie folk to high-energy surf rock.
There will be an outside craft beer and cider bar plus, new for this year, the Gin Station. You can also sample their street food stalls, and enjoy kids' crafts each day until 6.30pm. For those with extra energy there will be the Saturday night after part in The Hold.
