Description:Eden is a welcoming, atmospheric, family friendly festival, located in the stunning meadows at Rae Hills in Dumfries and Galloway and will be set across 12 stages.

The aim behind the festival is to provide a 3 day celebration of music, dance, culture and community built on an ecologicaly sound and carbon friendly set of principles, exhibiting live music alongside stunning decorations and surroundings.

The open-air Devorgilla Stage is to be host to some of the greatest underground bands of the last 20 years from Celtic, Roots, Tango, Reggae, Klezmer, Samba, Afrobeat, Folk, Balkan, Gypsy and Ska. The stage itself will be as impressive as the line-up it provides.

The Ghillie Dhu Dance Tent will be home to everything from Drum 'n' Bass to Psy-trance back to Dubstep and Breakbeat and anything in between - there will be something to suit any fan of dance music. This stage will exhibit live percussion instrumental dance music from many cultures and influences until nightfall descends.

Immerse yourself in the enticing, warm and exotic atmosphere of the Furry Chillum Musical Boutique, exhibiting acoustic, brass, swing, soul, funk and a heavy smattering of the bazzar. The tent's unique soundsystem will be provided by Jumblesale Sounds and hosted on the back of a stunning vintage truck.

Rabbie's Tavern will provide an auld Scottish bar to drink the local hooch with live bands playing celtic, roots, rockabilly and anything else that makes you stomp your foot, hoist yer tankerds and get yer melons oot! Rabbies Tavern will also have a traditional Scottish ceilidh each night.

Delving into Ossians Trunk you will find a swirl of cabaret, cinema, open mic, burlesque or workshop treats. This area provides an attention grabbing mix of eclectic productions, transcending itself to the audience in an inspiring and original display.

Further entertainment will be provided at the Drumtroddan Performance Arena where everything from fire walking to sword swallowing will be showcased.

Children are very welcome and there will be activities and events to keep them happy at the Shelly Coat Kids Tent, which will be run by a team of dedicated and experienced staff who will ensure they are kept enthused and entertained!

The Rheged Market will be the festivals bazzaar with a multitude of unique and interesting stalls. Food and drink will also be situated here and set just beyond the bazzaar will be the legendary Sawney Bean's Cafe.

Visual art at the festival will be created by a host of artists, with wooden, metal and glass sculpture made by a whole host of people from Greece to the Galloway and stunning painted drapes from the hands of Brahma.

Carbon emmissions from the festival will be calculated by the local Crichton Carbon Centre after the festival. The carbon will be compensated locally within Galloway with large tree plantations of a broadleaf or fruit nature. Kids from local schools will be involved in the project, which will be on-going as the trees grow and are cared for.
