From food stalls to beer tents, and pop-up tea rooms to acoustic stages, one of the highlights of any Norfolk music lover's calendar has announced their return in 2018.
The Trunchonbury Festival draws thousands to the North Norfolk countryside, every year returning to the site where the event began.
This year's theme is the Wizard of Oz, so festival goers can expect to find yellow brick roads and themed activities for every age to enjoy.
A spokesman for the Trunchonbury Festival said: 'From the minute you enter the Land of Oz till that final click of your heels takes you home, let the magic that is Trunchonbury wrap itself around you and transport you to a different land.'
This year's event includes acts from the county's finest musicians, as well as family friendly activities such as Burt's Amazing Animals and the Medieval Village.
You may also want to watch:
There will also be stalls and a food court, the Trunchonbury Arms, a Real Ale and Cider Bar, as well as a horsebox serving as a prosecco and gin outlet, and a converted double decker bus hosting Blakey's Bar.
Each morning campers will be woken to gentle music and yoga at the main stage, and throughout the day workshops are on offer to get involved with in the Performing Arts tent.
