The Weald & Downland Living Museum is a 40 acres site set in the heart of the South Downs National Park. New for 2019 is a full programme of outdoor music, theatre and cinema. Closing the summer will be the Weald & Downland’s very own music festival – The Summer Sessions. Think Americana, think Roots, think folk, think rock and everything in between, all brought together in perfect harmony with the beauty of the Weald to create the perfect festival vibe. Three bands headline each night with a mix of established and up and coming bands so something to revel in and something to discover!
Line Up – Friday 30 Aug
Silver Threads are classic country, straight out of Tennessee with a Sussex twist. Come for a night with Loretta, Cash, Anderson, Dolly, Connie, Ray Price and Buck to name a few!
Infectious grooves and raucous melodies with a rich history in Roots music are what you’ll find with the Muddlers.
Fate The Juggler
A project eight years in the making, Fate merge folk and rock, acoustic and electric with an indie flavour to create an uplifting sound all their own.
