Festival Director Ross Parkhill said it was “a fantastic coup for Stendhal to have the legend that is Donovan headline our Friday night this year”.

The Festival also had acts including: Macka B, the Reggae and dancehall pioneer; Rainy Boy Sleep; Dublin singer-songwriter Declan O’Rourke; Kormac, providing a mix of live electronics, turntables, drums, bass, vocals, trumpet, trombone, tuba, guitar and live visuals; and the big hit of last year, the powerhouse brand of hard rock, Making Monsters.

“Another coup for Stendhal has been securing a very special screening of the Bafta Award Winning and Academy Award nominated short film ‘Boogaloo and Graham’ at the festival,” said Mr Parkhill, who said other acts onthe comedy bill included Sara Pascoe and Kevin McAleer.
