Vedett will also be bringing their iconic roving Motel – the world’s first converted cement mixer to host a series of secret gigs with artists from the festival. These secret gigs will be exclusively available to view on Secret Sessions – the live acoustic music channel, featuring the hottest music talent in the UK.

They will follow in the footsteps of Bastille, Guillemots, Daughter, Mystery Jets, Michael Kiwanuka and Fionn Regan who wowed the crowds at the previous two years events.

Founded by Ben Lovett (Mumford and Sons), Kevin Jones (Bear’s Den), and producer Ian Grimble, it quickly grew into a flourishing community of musicians and fans alike, providing a first independent platform for the freshest young artists on London’s circuit and beyond.  From one monthly clubnight grew a global network of similar club-nights, a London based independent live promotions company (Communion Presents), and Communion Records: which has released records by artists like Gotye, Ben Howard, Daughter, Michael Kiwanuka, Deap Vally, Willy Mason, Matt Corby and loads more.
