Emma Sowter, Events and Promotions Co-ordinator at Mansfield District Council, said "This is a real celebration of the Mansfield area so I'm really pleased that we've got such a great line up of local talent.
"The standard of entries this year was extremely high but unfortunately we were only able to offer nine slots so we've tried to pick a mixture of acts that will offer a bit of something for everyone."
