As the event has grown significantly over the years, the addition of the Moat Garden Acoustic Stage was introduced. A family music stage with a 'high school musical' feel was also an addition for 2016. The family stage was located on the castle island and also housed a variety of children’s amusements including games, face painting, sand art and bouncy castle. Both new music areas complimented the main and acoustic stage on the castle lawn and visitors enjoyed the variety of acts performing on the day.
