The Apple Cart is back for its second year after a hugely successful launch last summer with a fun and colourful mix that goes beyond the music.

Adopting a melting pot ethos, no other event in the capital has Turner prize winners and world class magicians and alt. cabaret stars sitting happily alongside arena-filling comedians and established music legends all on the same bill, on the same day. The music stages boast both current darlings of the folk/rock scene Noah and the Whale and Stornoway, hotly tipped newcomers Marques Toliver and Beth Jeans Houghton (read our interview with Beth here) and maverick legends of pop Adam Ant and Kid Creole. Other gems in the list of acts include Lianne La Havas and Josh T Pearson.

The comedy stage – bigger this year after proving so popular in 2011 – has Shappi Khorsandi and Josie Long at the helm,also featuring Rich Hall and Phil Jupitus. The cabaret is programmed by the artful theatrics of Rude Grrl; including Run-Riot favourites Bourgeois and Maurice,The Fabulous Russella and A Man to Pet.

The magic tent is back to dazzle young and old featuring members of The Magic Circle and Venn St Market are putting together an even more mouth watering array of food (some people were seen going back for thirds…).

To get you dancing, after a trip to the real ale tent, Sean Rowley and Gilles Peterson return to man the decks as well as the popular solar powered Dig It Sound-system.

Art Car Boot Fair also return with their fun and affordable approach to art (will they bring back the salacious Spanking Post?) all sold from the boots of classic cars and for the children Penguin books and Candlelit Matinee – The House of Fairytales Film Theatre have been expanded to inspire young minds.
