Party in the Derbyshire Peaks this summer with not only one of the finest line ups but great late night entertainment including a dance tent, silent disco, secret raves and friendly camp fire singalongs. Away from the music and entertainment the food and drink (alcohol) shines through, offering up local ciders and real ale.
