Meanwhile, organisers are once again focusing heavily on social justice and the environment.

In terms of the line-up more than three-quarters of the acts feature women or “gender-minority” performers.

And it is free of single-use plastic – something it first achieved I 2019 – with reusable drinks bottles handed out to people attending.
