Staged on open fields on the north edge of Dartmoor with panoramic views of the surrounding area. In 2011 Chagstock expands to 3 days to celebrate its fifth anniversary and has moved to the first weekend of the holidays from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th July, with the beer tent open along with the acoustic marquee on the Friday.

Show Of Hands are returning to headline the acoustic marquee on the Friday night. The Magic Numbers will headline the main stage on the Saturday and Bellowhead will end the festival on the Sunday night. Other acts confirmed are 3 Daft Monkeys, John Otway Big Band, Rodney Branigan, Talk To Angels, No Crisis, The Sherpas, Stem Roach, The Operation, The Fireblockers, The Freak Bruvvers, Aluminio Roots (from Brazil), The Paris Riots, The Voodoo Trombone Quartet, Jack Harris, Henry Johnson, Itamar, and more. For the line-up details, day and stage splits, as available please click here.

This year there will be an extra whole day of music and entertainment, on both stages. The show will finish at about 10.30 pm on the Sunday in order to minimise disturbance to local residents.


Early bird tickets are no longer available. An adult full weekend ticket is priced at £90. A child (4-15 years) weekend ticket is priced at £45. A family weekend ticket is priced at £230. Tickets include free camping and parking. To buy tickets, click here.

Chagstock is a family friendly festival, suitable for young and not so young alike, with no focus on any particular music genre, but offering a blend of music to suit a wide range of tastes. Chagstock also offers other entertainment, including Mobile Climbing Wall, Punch & Judy, Cookery Workshops, Stilt Walkers and Face Painters etc around the site.

New for 2011

Exeter's Royal Albert Memorial Museum have agreed to come to Chagstock 2011 to provide some free kids entertainment.


The idea behind the festival is to give some local bands the opportunity to play at such an event as well as booking well known acts. It will be a mixture of styles from Rock to Folk and Blues plus whatever else they can find. They'll be a main stage, plus acts performing in a marquee between main stage acts.


Numbers will be limited to 5,000 to provide a fun but chilled atmosphere in a cosy, relaxed venue for all age groups.


Also please remember that the festival does not allow any pets anywhere on site so please do not bring them with the intention of leaving them in your car.

Park and carry

This year the festival has a policy of park and carry but there will be a service by some local Scouts who will, for a small donation, wheelbarrow your gear for you from the car park to the camping area (main camping area only).


Camping will be separate from parking, and will include a family camping area, quiet camping (with some space for campervans - sold out), and the usual festival rules will apply (no pets, campfires, fireworks etc). There are facilities available such as plentiful toilets, water, first aid etc.

On site

There will be two licensed beer tents, selling Chagstock Ale brewed by O'Hanlon's plus one of their standard session beers like Yellow Hammer. There will be a bigger choice of caterers with more of a local influence. Festival goers will therefore be unable to bring their own alcohol or food into the main arena area.

Good causes

The festival is run by a not for profit organisation supporting The Devon Air Ambulance and WaterAid.

More information will be here when available.
