Every year on the first weekend of September thousands flock to the Royal Jersey showground in Trinity for the island's biggest music event.

Now in its seventh year, Jersey Live has become a centre piece of the island entertainment calendar.

This year will see one of the biggest and most ambitious line ups for the 10,000 capacity event to date.

Festival director Warren Holt said the line up holds up well against even bigger events.

You will be able to keep up with BBC Jersey's festival coverage on Twitter , Facebook and the BBC Jersey blog with the team.

There will also be a special report on BBC Channel Island news on Monday from 18:30 and of course a full roundup of interviews, photos and features here on the website.

And it is that diversity, that true spirit of musical discovery that has kept the festival fresh and exciting every year.

This year will see bands like Biffy Clyro, Magic Numbers and The View perform on the main stage alongside acts like Professor Green, Chase and Status and Groove Armada.

Not to mention Kate Nash and Paul Weller on the Sunday night.

"We are so excited that we're going to be bringing [Groove Armada] plus their full live laser show, the people of Jersey are in for such a treat," said co-director Warren Le Sueur.

Mani, Stone Roses and Primal Scream bass player will return to the festival to introduce acts on the main stage.

Then in the Les InRocks MAGIC stage you can see up and coming stars from the UK, Europe and the USA.

Acts like Jamaica. We Have Band and Fenech-Soler in a much more intimate environment than the main stage.

We try our best to make it a real spectacle for when people come in. The first thing we pray for is the sunshine to make things as bright as possible.
Warren Le Sueur

"We're in talks for booking this beautiful new stage that will be the Les Inrocks MAGIC stage, it looks like a birds beak.

"It's the best line-up we've ever done this year, it's going from strength to strength," said Warren Holt.

Then there is the dance arena with some of the biggest names in dance music from a wide range genres including electro-pop and dubstep.

Dance arena acts include Calvin Harris, Tinie Tempa and Caspa.

The other change will be something festival goers will notice before they even get into the main arena, the main entrance is being widened.

"We try our best to make it a real spectacle for when people come in. The first thing we pray for is the sunshine to make things as bright as possible.

"We have got twice the amount of entry lanes, it's all being redesigned to allow people to flow in more quickly.

"We're very excited we're going to have a much smoother operation this year," said Warren Le Sueur.

And not forgetting Jersey's own corner of the showground, this year set out like a slice of the American wild west.

Band selection and hosting this year will be by Club Kamikaze's Chris Bell and organisation of the event by Headway's Beth Gallichan.

Headway raised nearly £7,000 from last years event through the sale of clothes. All money raised from the Wild West Tease Stage this year will go to Headway.


Tickets for Jersey Live 2010 are available from the Jersey Live website and will cost £175 for weekend VIP passes, £84 for a weekend ticket and £54 for a single day ticket.
