A three-day arts and music festival will roll in to the Welsh book town of Hay-on-Wye later this month with a host of artists, musicians and philosophers coming together to ask: what's the point of art?

The Crunch 2010 line-up combines an eclectic mix of individuals from different spheres of the art world. Artists taking part in talks and discussions include the Turner Prize-winning Martin Creed, as well as Marc Quinn, Matthew Stone, Donald Urquhart and Anj Smith.

Meanwhile, musicians providing the evening entertainment include Laura Marling, The Evening Chorus, Kate Tempest and the Sound of Rum, Man Like Me, Clean Bandit and Lulu and the Lampshades.
