Ellis-Bextor is set to dazzle with her glossy, disco-infused hits such as “Groovejet (If This Ain't Love)” and “Murder on the Dancefloor”, while Stone Foundation is set to showcase the very best of 25 years of vintage musical influences with a contemporary twist.

On Friday (June 14) it’s multi-platinum-selling Canadian rocker Bryan Adams who takes centre stage, supported by Cassyette. Fans will be hoping Adams belts out Summer of 69 in the Devon sunshine, and that he makes time for his global smash Everything I Do.
