2024 Line up 

Here are our confirmed acts so far, more TBC...

Amaraterra

When Amaraterra played for us two years ago, we were blown away by their music, unlike anything we'd heard before...hailing from Salento (the 'heel' of Italy), they play the highly infectious and supremely dancable folk music of southern Italy. We're delighted to have them back as our headliners this year, and we reckon you'll be blown away too.

She'koyokh

Internationally acclaimed and award-winning She'koyokh have a special place in our hearts as they are the band that Jim co-founded many years ago. They are now indisputably one of the best klezmer/gypsy bands in the UK (indeed, in the world, according to The Australian), and their music is exhilarating, soulful and life-affirming. You, and your feet, will fail not to be moved.

Mishra

Appearing in the woods as a duo, Mishra blend UK folk music with Indian classical to create something quite beautiful and unexpected. 

John Hegley

One of the nation's best loved contemporary poets, Guillemot-loving and Luton bungalow-inhabiting John Hegley returns to Jimfest to perform his lyrically ingenious and very funny songs. At past festivals he's been a hit with adults and children alike, and his warmth and wit have always left us delighted.

landline 1010

Last year, the legendary landline 1010 set the dancefloor on fire with his leg-twisting, booty-busting, hip-shaking set, and both he and we all had such a great time that he's back for more. The man has previous: he ran rave sound systems back in the day and has had his own tracks played by Carl Cox. Expect hard breaks, big beats, jaw-dropping mash-ups, and a messy dance floor.

MONSTRO ukulele minstrels colour.jpeg

Ukelele Minstrels

The Ukulele Minstrels are Karina Garnett and GIlbert Taylor, a multi-talented double-act who have toured around the UK delighting children with MONSTRO Theatre's much loved puppet musical The King of Nothing. They will serenade and delight you, tell you a story or two and if you’re lucky teach you some ukulele skills of your very own!

WishWorks

Jimfest veterans, WishWorks have played ALL 14 festivals. So we welcome back our dearly-loved friends Sally and Andy with their unique brand of madcap puppetry. Whether you've seen them perform or not, they are firm favourites of ours, and an absolute must-see
