Donovan has been announced as the Friday headliner of the 11th family friendly Chagstock which takes place over 2 days on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd July 2016 at Whiddon Down, Chagford, in Devon.
Neatly coinciding with Chagstock's own 10th anniversary, Easy Star All Stars will celebrate the 10 years since the release of their iconic album ‘Radiodread’ – their beautiful, ska-reggae infused re-imagining of Radiohead’s album ‘Ok Computer’ – alongside a selection from their extensive back catalogue of dub-heavy re-workings of classic artists; from Pink Floyd (Dub Side Of The Moon) to The Beatles (Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Dub Band) via Michael Jackson (Easy Stars’ Thrillah).
Also recently confirmed The Stranglers will headline the Saturday night, plus Ferocious Dog, Tankus the Henge, Danny and the Champions Of The World, The Voodoo Trombone Quartet, Cattle & Cane, Black Static, Marc O'Reilly, and Rews.
The early bird offer has ended. An adult weekend ticket is priced at £85. A youth (aged 12-17 Years) weekend ticket is priced £55, a family (2 x Adults 2 x Youths) weekend ticket is priced at £250, and an early bird child (aged under 12 years) ticket is free. A campervan ticket is priced at £15, and a Group Ticket discount (buy 6, get one free) is also available.
All weekend tickets include 2 nights of camping and car parking, and day tickets will also be available.
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.
