The summer festival began in 2008 with the Master Musicians Brian Jones 40th Anniversary Festival and has continued every year since then.
The festival is a true micro festival rather than a rock festival.

Naturally the highlight of the festival is the three days of music and the intimate access to the Masters and their hospitality.
