The festival mainstage is the centre of the action across the weekend; it’s where the biggest names connect with the biggest crowds for the biggest moments. Whether you set up camp for Saturday afternoon’s headliners or stop by Sunday morning to catch a programme of exciting new talent, the Sunlight Stage is the beating heart of the festival.
