FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Chagstock Festival, Whiddon Down, Devon
CHAGSTOCK FESTIVAL is one of the Westcountry’s best-loved festivals. Set in 70 acres of farmland on the edge of Dartmoor, Chagstock is renowned for its stunning location, diverse line-up of artists and non-corporate, family friendly atmosphere. Chagstock showcases the very best music, food and entertainment that the Westcountry and the UK have to offer.
After selling out the entire allocation of early bird tickets in record time, all tickets, camping options and vehicle passes for this year’s festival go on sale at 9am on Thursday 16th January.
The first acts confirmed for 2014 are legendary 2-Tone band, The Selecter; Award winning Canadian band The Stanfields, who blend hard rock with traditional atlantic folk; Hotly-tipped English blues-rockers Sam Green & The Midnight Heist; wonderfully chaotic high-energy Balkan folksters Sheelanagig and local Okehampton rockers, Downfall. Chagstock’s very own house band, New Crisis also perform their traditional main stage slot.
This year’s Fancy Dress Theme will be ‘The Wild West!’
Last year’s festival sold out for the second year running, and featured memorable performances from The Boomtown Rats, Billy Bragg and The Mystery Jets amongst many others.
As introduced in 2012 in recognition of the tough economic climate for families, all children under 12 can attend the festival for free (ticket is required). Chagstock’s capacity is once again capped at just 5,000 tickets to ensure that its intimate, family-friendly atmosphere is maintained.
Simon Ford Chagstock Festival organiser says, “I am delighted that Chagstock has now sold out two years in a row! The whole team is really excited for 2014 and are all working hard to make this year’s event they best yet. Once again we are sticking to the non-corporate vibe and family friendly atmosphere with loads of great and varied music, food and entertainment” Weekend Tickets are priced at £75 (Adults), £50 (Under 18’s),
