Situated in Shepton Mallet in Summerset, this festival really does have something for everyone, boasting white knuckle rides, silent discos, DJ workshops and extreme sports competitions running throughout the day. Other big names on the line up include Dismantle, Friction, Borgore and Roska, all of which will be perform- ing in warehouses located on the main festival site.
