Music will finish at 11.30pm on Saturday and 10.30pm on Sunday.
Callum Ringer, one of the organisers, said: 'We are looking to build on the event we had last year and make it an affordable day out for people.'
Rock Bodham, now in its fourth year, revamped itself last year with rockier music on one day and a more 'chilled' atmosphere on the other.
Last year it attracted nearly 1,000 people. Charities including the Norfolk and Waveney Branch of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, the East Anglian Air Ambulance, and Bodham village causes shared the £3,450 raised and £450 was used for a children's Christmas party.
Volunteers who can help - from manning the gate, barbecue and bar, or running a stall are welcomed.
Tickets for the Saturday event are £4 for adults, £1 for children, with under-three's free. The Sunday event is free entry. Contact email@example.com.
