Folk musician Eliza Carthy joins presenter Verity Sharp to create and curate the festival of her wildest dreams. It's a chance for Eliza to set the festival's agenda, chose the guests, pick the acts, dictate the weather, the food and the ambience. A festival where anyone - dead or alive - can be summoned to perform, and nothing is unimaginable.
Eliza outlines her dream festival which takes place at Robin Hood's Bay. Finnish folk musicians Värttinä, Italian folk group Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino and Dreadzone are on the bill alongside Freddie Mercury, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Joe Venuti, Professor Brian Cox and Abba. Everyone's there and everything's possible in Eliza's feel good festival.
