17-19 JULY, 2015




There are 15 acts finalised for Nutstock this year, playing over three days. This will be the fifth festival, following on the success of the others.


We have a cracking lineup this year, with the Walnut Tree favourites: BoxEddy kicking things off on Friday at 6pm, followed by the mighty Hats off to Led Zeppelin.


On Saturday following some circus skills performance, we have a strong start with Motown band Mid-Sensation, followed by funksters Repro Jam Squad and finishing with Ma Brown's Groovebox.


Add a Hog and Lamb Roast and Barbecue, some fine curries and a superb selection of real ales and you have a great day out!


On Sunday, we will be going a bit folkie to start, with Palmerston and King's Gambit followed by Rapscallion and finishing with 70's psychedelic rock outfit: The Here and Now Band.
