This year is no exception, with big names for each of the four nights from June 14-17.

The Sunday evening finale with Gary Barlow has sold out but we’ve got a pair of tickets for the Saturday night triple bill of Elvis Costello, The Waterboys and Nick Lowe, to give away to one lucky reader in our great competition.

The Nocturne series opens on the Thursday with Nile Rodgers and Chic, supported by Soul II Soul and MF Robots, while there’s a change in style on the Friday when Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds headline, with The Coral as support.
