The event will take place at Hatfield House after organisers chose not to return to previous host Knebworth House.

Last year’s three-day festival, which attracted around 20,000 people, was criticised by residents in the surrounding area who lodged complaints about the noise level and music being played until 6am on two consecutive days.

This year’s event will take place on August 2 – the same Saturday that Rhythms of the World in Hitchin begins.
