Profits from the ticket sales will go to Autism Jersey, and since the festival was set up, in 2012, it's raised more than £65,000 for local charities.

Organisers now have permission to increase capacity by expanding into woodland owned by Le Moulin de Lecq.

The festival attracts a melting pot of creative talent, music and art which has grown organically since it started in 2012, raising over £65,000 for local charities.

The focus is always a celebration of local talent and entertainment for every generation, creating the best possible experience for those who come along.

Groove is an ethically produced festival that embraces the community good will and provides a platform for locally grown talent - the result is rather spectacular and certainly something that Jersey can be proud of.”

– Beth Gallichan, founder of Groove de Lecq
