Hampshire country music duo Ward Thomas will headline and close our festival on the mainstage!

 Hailed as the UK’s most successful country act, twin sisters Catherine and Lizzy Ward Thomas recently sold out shows across the UK during 23/24 with a special show with stripped back versions of songs from across their career.  Recording their debut album, 2014’s ‘From Where We Stand’, whilst still in school, the duo have since cemented themselves as pioneers in the UK Country and Americana scene; not least for the follow-up album ‘Cartwheels’ released in 2016 going to No.1 in the UK Album Charts, the first by a UK country act to top the charts.   

In 2019, the band were presented with the Country Music Association’s Jeff Walker Global Achievement Award in recognition of their success and impact on country music in the UK. 

‘Music In The Madness’ was hailed by critics for its live sound mixed with country-pop style, whilst of their Barbican show earlier this year, The Upcoming said: ‘It’s safe to say Ward Thomas delivered a magical performance that left us on a high – an evening to remember.’ 

So get ready Devon we are going to have an absolute party!
