Somersault is a five-day summer camp of music, adventure & outdoor living in the heart of the South West, located at the beautiful Castle Hill estate just half an hour from both the North Devon coast and Exmoor.
The Jack Wills New Music Stage has just been added to the bill, giving new bands a brilliant opportunity to play to a festival crowd, and providing a fantastic addition of new music to the line up for Somersault attendees. The stage will be hosted by Jack Wills, an official partner of the festival (an exclusive partnership to Somersault) and will be housed in a striped big top - reminiscent of the famous Jack Wills stripes. The tent will be decorated in Jack Wills' ubiquitous styleof the old mixed with the new - hay bales, vintage chandeliers, lampshades and giant neon windmills - all helping to create the perfect atmosphere for the bands and audience alike. Further content and activities are still to be announced by Jack Wills.
Blackpool's Rae Morris will headline the Friday evening, 19 year old Rae features on the new Clean Bandit album out in May on the track "Up Again" - her unique voice is set to be instantly recognisable very soon. Saturday's headliner on the Jack Wills New Music Stage will be the increasingly popular Lewis Watson. In 2012 he self released his debut EP, "It's Got Four Sad Songs On It BTW" - on day of release it topped the iTunes singer-songwriter, outselling the likes of Adele, Madonna and Ed Sheeran in the process. All five of his EPs to date have hit the Top 10 at iTunes, each building on the sales of the previous release. His debut album, "The Morning" will be released this summer. Sunday will see We Were Evergreen take to the New Music Stage who, with their impressive live reputation, will be one not to miss over the weekend. Late night DJ sets will round off each night - DJs to be announced very soon.
