The Vaccines
Freddie Cowan of The Vaccines said, "I'm proud to announce our participation in a brand new festival this summer called Chazzstock. Chazzstock is a non profit festival set up for charity in name and memory of my dear late friend Charlie Haddon.

"It was a long held ambition of Charlie's to put on his own festival, as always he was rarely concerned with anything but the enjoyment of others and with the combined efforts of his friends and family we are going to see that dream materialise this summer.

"Expect a festival set up with a unique love and attention, just a few miles from his home, in the beautiful grounds of Stanford Hall, Leicestershire. And please look out for further line up announcements. Thank you and we hope to see you there."

Tom Cowan, of The Horrors added, "Charlie was a dear friend to us all for many years and we're pleased to be a part of Chazzstock, both in remembrance of our friend and in support of The Prince's Trust."

Also confirmed are Alex Starling, and Jen Armstrong.

The event plans to be a family-friendly festival, accommodating around 5000 festival-goers with one main stage only, and will take place at Stanford Hall, in Leicestershire on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th June, and donates all of its profits to The Prince's Trust.

Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training with Youth unemployment costing the UK economy a staggering £10 million a day in lost productivity, with youth crime £1 billion every year.

The Prince's Trust helps these young people to turn their lives around. They give practical and financial support to the young people who need it most, helping develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling them to move into work, education or training. The Prince's Trust will help 50,000 young people this year, and needs almost £1 million pounds a week to continue its vital work.

An adult weekend ticket is priced at £75 or £60 without camping. A teen (aged 12-17 years) ticket is priced at £50 or £40 without camping. Children aged under-12 will be admitted free (must be accompanied by an adult). An adult Saturday day ticket is priced at £45 (£30 for teens), and a Sunday adult day pass is priced at £35 (£22 for teens), with a charge of £5 for car parking. To buy tickets, click here.
