Festival founder and director Leoni Kilbey promises "much more diversity this year."

She added: "The opening in the cathedral will be amazing and we have got Cassetteboy performing at the awards and closing ceremony.    

“We have got both parts of Nymphomaniac which is quite a coup.

“Luton Airport is headline sponsor and we couldn’t have been so ambitious without their support – in particular supporting underprivileged youth who are attending the festival and creating a video diary of their experience.”
