This year's festival contains a touch of controversy with punk band Killdren, who were dropped from the Glastonbury Festival for satirically crying 'Kill a Tory'.

The band is playing its first ever Worcester gig on Saturday, September 14.

The music festival, originally launched in 2008, has raised thousands of pounds for charity with the Worcester Foodbank being this year's chosen charity.
