Wychwood Festival will include performances from Kate Nash, The Human League, Police Dog Hogan and Caravan Palace.
A spokesman for the festival said: “The festival is known for its family friendly atmosphere, big range of music on offer, plus loads of other activities including 100 workshops for all ages, comedy, cinema and much more.
