Other acts appearing on Saturday incude ABC, Howard Jones, Midge Ure, Hue & Cry, Brother Beyond, Five Star, Then Jerico and many more.

A spokesperson for the festival said: “We would really like to thank both our audience and the artists for their amazing support and loyalty, and we really can’t wait to come back bigger and better next year.

However, we couldn’t just leave it until then

“We all need a little pick-me-up so we thought why can’t we do a festival ‘off the field’ (taking into consideration self-distancing of course)?

"Okay, we’re not all together in a field with a drink in hand enjoying the atmosphere, but we can all live through it together on our screens, and hopefully we can also raise some much-needed funds for the incredible charity Child Bereavement UK.”
