Chagstock Festival, Whiddon Down, Devon
CHAGSTOCK FESTIVAL is one of the Westcountry’s best-loved festivals. Set in 45 acres of farmland on the northern edge of Devon’s beautiful Dartmoor, Chagstock is renowned for its stunning location, diverse line-up of artists and family-friendly atmosphere.
Acts recently confirmed for the eclectic family-friendly festival include a Friday night acoustic stage headline performance from KT Tunstall, plus performances from the critically acclaimed Juan Zelada, Cornwall-based singer-songwriter Ruarri Joseph, Jools Holland favourite Big Boy Bloater and alt-folk troubadours The Travelling Band. Many more acts, including the main and acoustic stage Saturday night headliners are yet to be announced.
Chagstock returns to its traditional 2-day format in 2012 and has confirmed details of a number of exciting changes for what will be its sixth year. These include a major new zone called "The Village Green", a revamped and enlarged children’s area, the announcement that all children under 12 can attend for free, and a renewed emphasis on ensuring that wherever possible its performing artists, food, traders and brewery all have strong Westcountry links.
Chagstock’s capacity is once again capped at just 5,000 tickets to ensure that its intimate, family-friendly atmosphere is maintained, and as in previous years these are expected to sell out well in advance. Discounted early bird tickets are available until the end of February, priced at just £50 for an adult weekend ticket including camping and parking.
Simon Ford from Chagstock Festival says, "After the success of our fifth anniversary in 2011, everyone involved in Chagstock Festival is working hard to ensure this year’s event is even better. With the tough economic times that people are currently facing, it is essential to offer not only a wonderful event, but at prices that people can afford. With this in mind we have brought down our ticket prices to 2010 levels, and are now offering free tickets to all accompanied children aged under 12"
This year’s fancy dress theme will be Kings, Queens & Knights Of The Round Table
Early Bird weekend tickets are £50 (Adults), £35 (Under 18’s) and Under 12’s are free (ticket is still required). A Family Ticket for 2 Adults & 2 Under 18s is £150. All weekend tickets include 2 nights of camping, access to all music and on-site events and car parking. Day tickets are also available. Booking fees apply.
