Main Stage Acts

We have a fantastic line-up of main stage gigs this year, pulling musicians from across the Celtic communities of Scotland, Ireland, Brittany and, of course, Cornwall.

These gigs are all in the evening in Wadebridge Town Hall, and we will be running a bar there.

Full Festival tickets get you in to everything. There will be full seating for ticket holders for the Causley Celebration Bonus Day (Thursday) Dougie Maclean (Saturday) and Cara Dillon (Sunday) concerts, and a mix of seating and standing for Dosca (Friday) and Black Friday (who are on Monday).

Note that the town hall has a limited capacity of around 220 people, so you are strongly advised to book tickets in advance via our ticket page.



Wadebridge Town Hall, Monday 27th August

“Marvailh”, in Breton, means “fantasy tale”. Five talented musicians from Rennes have come together to write their own story. Through their passion of Breton music, these five young men from different musical backgrounds (saxophone, accordion, guitar, double bass and drums) have let themselves be carried by the influences of jazz and pop in their everyday life. Deeply rooted in traditional music, always attentive to dancers, Marvailh uses all its energy to produce a velvety, enthralling and powerful sound which is reminiscent of a jazz quintet.

With Sam Kelly and The Lost Boys

No guarantee can be given that any events will take place, or any artists will perform at a particular time, or at all. We will, however, make every effort to carry out the programme as advertised.
