As well as the main acts appearing at Meraki, there are plenty of other live performers throughout the weekend, including Hope Russell-Winter, Electric Umbrella, Laura Evans, August Child and Scarlette Fever. Many of these come from the St Albans area, so make sure to support our local talent!

There are various activities and attractions taking place throughout the weekend, all included within the ticket price, including laser tag, hot tubs, a waterslide, caving, roller disco, dodgems and the big wheel.

The Hideaway adults-only field is new for 2018, and throughout the weekend features yoga sessions, massages, various DJ sets and a silent disco, with glitter and glow face painting at Mally’s Gin Bar.

If you’re pitching a tent for the weekend, there’s plenty happening on the campsite, including kids yoga, facepainting and glitter, baby bathtime and campsite stories, and the Big Top will be hosting film screenings for a variety of ages, plus circus shows and workshops.
