A three-day rock, prog, folk and blues music festival.

After the huge popularity of the successful new festival last year, A New Day returns to the beautiful setting of Mt Ephraim Gardens in August for another weekend of the very best in prog, classic rock, blues and roots music.

The small festival with the big bands, A New Day is proud to present another mix of true rock legends alongside some great up and coming bands destined for great things.

The event is hosted on two stages running consecutively, meaning there is no clash of favourite bands and no sound bleed across the stages, allowing everyone the chance to catch practically every note played by the likes of:
Uriah Heep, New Model Army, John Lees' Barclay James Harvest, Jethro Tull's Martin Barre & Band, Big Country, Focus, Slade, The Yardbirds, Io Earth, Martin Turber ex-Wishbone Ash, Gryphon, Home Service, Lindisfarne, King King, Solstice, Soft Machine, Dr Feelgood, Del Bromham's Blues Devils, The Strawbs, Pearl Handled Revolver, Edgar Broughton, Dennis Greaves & Mark Feltham from 9 Below Zero, Tommy Justice, The Fierce And The Dead, Opensight, The House Of X, Kindred Spirit, The Jackie McAuley Band, Jackie Lynton and more.

Camping, pre-pitched camping and glamping are available, and parking is free.

There are of course many and varied craft and food stalls and well stocked bars with probably the cheapest priced beers to be found at any festival.
