2023 Winter's End was a real blast! Fifteen superb performances from our stellar lineup, an ever expanding menu of fantastic food from the kitchen and a range of craft beer and cider that seemed to simply evaporate over the weekend.

It was so much fun, we're doing it again in 2024!

Festival co-promoter Huw Lloyd-Jones comments:

‘Once again, I think we’ve put together a very eclectic lineup, and we’re particularly happy to have two festival alumni – The Fierce and the Dead and Solstice – returning in well-deserved headline slots for the first time, plus Oliver Wakeman and his all-star band playing the Yes album ‘From A Page’ for the first – and possibly only – time’.

We are delighted to welcome the awesome JUMP to headline Thursday 11th. This ever popular band have been away from the stage for a while, so we're excited to see them. Support comes from South Wales' brilliant Tribe3. It will be an excellent night of live music.

Our headliners on Friday 12th are The Fierce and the Dead, who are riding high after the release of their acclaimed new album ‘News From The Invisible World’, with vocals adding to their wonderfully eclectic sound.

Headlining Saturday 13th are Solstice, headlining for the first time. The band are truly surfing the crest of the proverbial wave, following a string of inspirational live performances since 2021 with vocalist Jess Holland, and two acclaimed new albums in ‘Sia’ and ‘Light Up’

Headlining the Sunday 14th will be an exclusive performance by Oliver Wakeman's Anam Cara, featuring a live performance of the Yes record 'From a Page' as well as songs from across his career. Oliver’s all-star band will feature Hayley Griffiths on vocals, Scott Higham on drums and Oliver Day on guitars.


The lineup also features high-profile slots for the beautifully emotive music of Tim Bowness and his fantastic band (which includes TFATD’s Matt Stevens, former IQ drummer Andy Edwards and festival stalwart John Jowitt), plus inspirational young prog heroes Kyros, fronted by Shelby Logan Warne.

Also playing are two fine European bands making their debut at the festival in Alex Carpani (and band) from France/Italy and the highly regarded Yesterdays, the Romania-based Hungarian prog band. From closer to home, we have the new-look Beatrix Players, prog veterans Trilogy and Glen Brielle, fronted by former Abel Ganz multi-instrumentalist Hugh Carter. Two up-and-coming acts featured will be Zopp (presented by Prog magazine) and the talented Dominic Sanderson and band, making his festival debut.
