Hideaway Music Festival promises to be a rare musical treat, set in a hidden clearing on a private estate in Fawley Hill, between Henley-on-Thames and Marlow, the festival takes place on Saturday, August 3.

Music will be provided by musicians such as The Blockheads, John Ottway, Wild Willy Barrett, Laid Blak and Off The Radar, as well as local stars, including singer-songwriter Megan Henwood and The Voodoo Funk Collective - bringing a diverse range of music from classic rock to folk and indie.

The festival is the brainchild of local businessman and musician Brett Fuller, who has had a lifelong love of live music and, in the 1980s, was often found busking with his guitar in London's Covent Garden.

Brett said: "Hideaway Music Festival is a dream that I have had for a while now and thanks to Sir William and Lady McAlpine's support, will become a reality. I love live music and I wanted to do something different from the huge impersonal festivals that I feel have just lost their soul."

Tickets cost £35 (under 12s go free) with camping available for £5 a head. Visit www.hideawayfestival.com or you can buy tickets at 'In the Groove' vinyl record shop, in Reading Road, Henley-on-Thames.
