The Bar Stage plays host to Yellow Bentines, Indigo Skins, The Mosaics, Deeds Of The Nameless, The Dickensies, Fearne, White Ace, Riot Lights, Obrigado, Go, Outfit Faux, and Lahayna.

Playing The Slingshot Stage are Nasty Ho, Feed Me, Skunk, Mazzoni, Vertigo, The Return, A Lesser Concern, Sheepskin Beard, Laid Back Jack, and Censored.

CockRock '08 will see many new additions. The 'rapid fire' stages will once again be in action, there will be a new larger stage which will be combined with the well stocked bar, aptly name 'The Bar Stage' which will be hosted by Cumbria's very own Solfest. As well as the Session Tent - back by popular demand, and a new extra stage. Expect a professional BBQ on site, plus many stalls, food outlets, extra bars as well as many events for all the family. These include a Bouncy Castle, Rodeo Bull, Gladiator Duals and more.
