A music festival is coming to Cornwall – and you don’t even need to leave your home to attend.

Bank holiday Monday will see some of the county’s best bands playing live across the airwaves on BBC Radio Cornwall.

The packed schedule runs from 7am to 10pm and includes interviews with festival organisers, street food stall owners and circus performers.

The festival finishes with a special set from David White’s Boogie Wonderland show.

David said: “They may not be the biggest but to me Cornwall has some of the best festivals in the world: The Great Estate, Tropical Pressure, Masked Ball, Little Orchard Cider and Music Festival and Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival to name a few.

“Thousands flock every year to these festivals and while we can’t hope to fill the gap left by them, we will do our best to bring you a taste of festival life to tide you over until they’re back.

“So get in your gardens, pop up the tent, pour yourself a cider and tune in to BBC Radio Cornwall. What better way to spend the bank holiday Monday?”

The festival acts have been hand-picked from BBC Music Introducing, the broadcaster’s new talent platform. They will be joined by other Cornish creatives such as comedians, storytellers and poets who have been featured on the BBC over the past year.

It means music lovers can get their 'festival fix', despite a summer of cancelled events.

The headline acts will be announced on Thursday.
