In addition to more than fifty musical acts appearing across the weekend, Chagstock has a wealth of other activities for all ages. The Something Else Tea Tent hosts acoustic acts (TBA) all weekend with tea and cakes.
There will also be Trapeze Workshops, Bubble Mania, Storytelling, Wandering Poets, Water Zorbing and lots more. There are also a host of vintage activities including Swingboats from 1910, an 1890's Showmans Wagon and Cine Star Archive Films will also be screening early home movies from the 50's and 60's using their vintage film projectors all weekend.
Simon Ford Chagstock Festival organiser says, "I am delighted that Chagstock has now sold out two years in a row! With the announcement of Lightning Seeds, alongside acts such as The Waterboys, The Selecter and many others, the whole team is confident that 2014 will be our best year yet and we will sell out once again! As always we are sticking to the non-corporate vibe and family friendly atmosphere with loads of great and varied music, food and entertainment."

Now in its 9th year Chagstock is a well set up, very family friendly festival, suitable for young and not so young alike, with no focus on any particular music genre, and offering a blend of music to suit a wide range of tastes. Alongside the music, there's a decent selection of food and drink, and lots other entertainment around the site to keep the kids occupied.
This year’s Fancy Dress Theme will be 'The Wild West!’
