Festival Director Adam Brown said, "We are very excited to welcome some huge and globally recognised acts to Brownstock Festival this year and Labrinth definitely tops this off. But we are also excited about our support bands. We give everyone that applies a hearing and we genuinely think that we have a few names there that will be ringing in your ears long after we close the festival gates. Remember you heard them here first."

The independent boutique festival run by the Brown family on their farm in Essex started as an over grown family party giving it a rustic uniqueness enhanced by the Farmer's Food Village, art camp with a 50 metre wall painting and graffittied combine harvester, a late license – with a 24 hour silent disco, Pianookee and open mic in the new Piano Bar, hip hop karaoke, and a fully interactive array of extras. Expect such delights as the Brownstock tavern, Brown Town's mud wrestling arena, Spiderman bungee jumps, full skate park, 5-a-side football cage, the brown town shopping mall, live graffiti, parkour free running park, Brown Town fairground, battle of the brands and more.
