In addition, some new acts have been announced. First up is Wolgemut, a very unique minstrel's troupe that incorporates traditional material from various European countries including folk songs and dances from Sweden, France, German and the Balkans with comedy to create a Renaissance rock show.
The next new act is Gypsy Geoff - Fire Circus Show, a juggler, physical comedian and variety entertainer. Geoff is a master of mayhem and manipulation, and he's waiting to entertain you and your children.
