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.

Theme

This year's theme is Kings, Queens & Knights of the Round Table.

Ideology

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

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

Pets

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

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.
