THE Hideaway Festival is back again this year with more acts spread over a whole weekend.
The festival, which began as a one-day event at a private estate in Fawley last summer, will feature more than 50 acts covering a wide range of musical genres, from classic rock to melodic folk and country via reggae, ska, indie and African grooves.
Internationally-known musicians such as Big Country, Alabama 3, Animals and Friends, Republica and Eddie and the Hot Rods have signed up to perform.
They will join a number of bands who played last year and are back again this summer, including Nubiyan Twist, Mellor, Maybe Neverland and the Silver Rays.
The festival will have music on three stages including an intimate acoustic stage and will also offer a showcase for local talent.
