WOMEN IN MUSIC | 5PM, THE FLOWER GARDEN | FRIDAY
Following its hugely successful debut last year, the 2018 Festival will see the return of the Woman in Music panel discussion. The Festival has always been passionate about equality of our line-up, in 2017 we had an all-female main stage line-up and 2018 sees a brilliant female representation on the bill. This panel will discuss the current challenges women have in the music industry and we can help change this for the better.
MOJO Interview | 1PM, The Flower Garden | Friday
Each year MOJO selects an artist performing at the Festival and in the intimate Club Tent interview in front of a live audience. 2018 sees our Guest Curator Rhiannon Giddens interviewing Peggy Seeger about her extraordinary career and musical history.
