I suppose I'd be right in saying that, due to timing, this would now be the only non-virtual folk festival in the UK where there is real hope that it will actually take place. Yet so far as I know only the few acts listed above have been announced. Do veterans of this festival know if this is a normal state of affairs for this time of year or does the lack of any recent announcements suggest that more bad festi news is on the way?

I wouldn't be too concerned about the lack of line-up announcements it's not particularly late for them

The glimmer of hope that they are confident that the festival will go ahead is the demand led fluctuating cost price and for the past few months a chalet hasn't been listed at less than £230 for the weekend which is about £70 more than I've ever paid. You can get a discount of 5% if you've been three times before or you can use use Tesco reward vouchers for up to two thirds of the cost.
