CHAGSTOCK FESTIVAL is one of the Westcountry's best-loved festivals. Set in 45 acres of farmland on the northern edge of Devon's beautiful Dartmoor, Chagstock is renowned for its stunning location, diverse line-up of artists and family-friendly atmosphere. Chagstock showcases the very best music, food and entertainment that the Westcountry and the UK have to offer.

Returning after the stunning sell-out success of last year's event which featured memorable performances from KT Tunstall, Fun Lovin Criminals, Seth Lakeman and Alabama 3 amongst many others, Chagstock retains its traditional 2-day format in 2013. 

The limited number of 2013 Early Bird tickets sold out in record time, so standard tickets (still held at 2012 prices!) are now on sale, a month earlier than anticipated. Full ticket details are below.

Details of a number of exciting changes for Chagstock's seventh consecutive year have also been released by the Festival Organisers. 
For the first year, both the Main and Second stages will run throughout both days. The Acoustic Second stage has been re-branded the Marquee stage. Furthermore, the on-site Bar is being upgraded, with a major expansion to the bar size and staffing levels. Parking arrangements have also been reviewed and improved. Other exciting changes to the festival will be announced as we get closer to the event.

As introduced last year in recognition of the tough economic climate for families, all children under 12 can attend for free (ticket is required). 

Chagstock's capacity is once again capped at just 5,000 tickets to ensure that its intimate, family-friendly atmosphere is maintained. 

Simon Ford from Chagstock Festival says, "After last year's sell out success - our first ever - everyone involved in Chagstock Festival is committed to making 2013 our best year yet. We have some fabulous headline bands in the pipeline and we can't wait to share the details of who will be performing at Chagstock 2013 with you in due course. We know times are tough for people so we are keeping our prices at last year's levels, meaning a whole family can spend the weekend at Chagstock for less than the price of a single adult ticket to some of the corporate music festivals. We look forward to seeing first-timers and regulars alike at Chagstock 2013"

This year's fancy dress theme will be 'Circus'
