The festival started as creator Joe Davies’ 18th birthday party in a back garden before becoming the success it is today, with some 1,000 people set to attend the 2018 event.
Joe said: “It’s incredible to think how far the festival has come in four years, and I can’t wait to welcome more people than ever before into the JoeFest community”.
Local-sourced ales and the festival’s own beer, along with a wide range of festival food, will be available.
