Do bands send in their music? Yes, we have 700 applicants each year, minimum, for about 100 slots. We also approach a number of artists and bands ourselves so that we can make sure that blend is there. This year’s line up is probably one of the best we have been able to put together from what we have heard and the blend of artists we’ve got - we’re really excited about our headline act Dodgy.


How much of your time does being Chairman take up? At the moment it’s probably a good two days a week, maybe more, and I’ve really enjoyed it.


Do you have time for other interests? All sorts, yes. I’m a big supporter of the Exeter Chiefs so I go and see them a lot more. I use the gym a lot and enjoy cooking. I also have a small boat on the Dart. Professionally and workwise I work for a company that deals with accreditation of business schools


around the world, I’m an investor and advisory board member for a couple of small technology start-up companies in London, I chair the advisory board for the Nottingham Business School and I lecture at Nottingham Trent University.


Why is the music festival so successful? The number of willing volunteers who put it together in the first place, and the huge following and support we get from the local community, businesses and people months beforehand offering their support, signing up as sponsors and getting involved. Also, the incredible hard work and support we get from local councils, the army of people who help us during the days of the festival and the bands who come in and, in many cases, for reduced fees. It’s a free festival and anybody can come and listen to the widest variety of music that I think I’ve ever seen, completely for free in some of the most joyful venues that there are.


What does the future hold for the festival? I think we have a winning formula. It won’t be bigger in the future but it might be better in terms of the variety of acts we get, and the success of people who have been helped by the foundation coming back to playing at the festival. It might be better because businesses are reporting their turnover has gone up considerably, because all of the hotels and restaurants are full and because people are enjoying it even more.


Do you play any instruments? No, I’m terrible. But I will never replace the feeling I had when I was a DJ when I played to 7,000 people in that field in Bude as the sun was setting - it was very emotional! To see that many people having the most wonderful time and dancing came close to what I think the feeling might be when actually playing that music yourself.
