This stunning natural amphitheatre, along with the surrounding Brooklands Park, will transform into a global village of musicians, artists and performers for three days from 12 to 14 March.

This year 19 countries will be represented by 250 performers across seven stages. There will also be a global village, live cooking demonstrations, workshops and an adjoining campsite.

There's something for everyone, from African music legends and funky French punksters to an original member of the Buena Vista Social Club, eight horn-playing brothers and "the voice of the Sahara".
