CHAGSTOCK FESTIVAL 2013

CHAGSTOCK FESTIVAL 2013

“The Best Little Festival in The South West”

FRIDAY 19th – SATURDAY 20th JULY 2013

The Boomtown Rats (featuring all four original members including Bob Geldof) also Billy Bragg, Mystery Jets and many more amazing artists complete Chagstock Festival line up

Chagstock 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 & family-friendly atmosphere. Chagstock showcases the very best music, food & entertainment that the Westcountry & the UK have to offer.

Returning after the stunning sell-out success of last year’s event which featured KT Tunstall, Fun Lovin Criminals, Seth Lakeman & Alabama 3 amongst many others, Chagstock retains its traditional 2-day format in 2013. As introduced last year in recognition of the tough economic climate for families, all children under 12 can attend for free. Chagstock’s capacity is once again capped at just 5,000 tickets to ensure that its intimate, family-friendly atmosphere is maintained. This year’s fancy dress theme will be ‘Circus’

CHAGSTOCK FESTIVAL have announced Mystery Jets as their final main stage headliner for 2013.  They join a host of new additions to the bill, including Disraeli & The Small Gods, Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo, Crowns, Crazy Arm & Matthew & Me in completing the 2013 line-up.

Comprising father-and-son combo Henry & Blaine Harrison, alongside William Rees & Kapil Traveldi, Mystery Jets were formed on Eel Pie Island when the boys were still at school. Seven years & four albums later they are still delighting audiences around the world with hits including as Young Love & Two Doors Down. Mystery Jets will headline Chagstock shortly after supporting Mumford and Sons.

Disraeli & The Small Gods are currently making waves throughout the music world, with their 7-piece melodic, unashamedly heartfelt reinvention of hiphop leading The Independent to declare, “their folk, rap, spoken word and hymns embody 21st Century folk.”

Hailing from Western Australia, Emily Barker is a compelling songwriter with a gift for weaving melody & words. Her talent is perfectly complimented by the magnificent arrangements of her three-piece ensemble, The Red Clay Halo. Emily is renowned for writing & recording the theme to the BBC One’s, Wallander, which won a BAFTA & a Royal Television Award.

These are exciting times for Cornish sea-shanty punks, Crowns. With a major Dropkick Murphy’s support tour under their belts, Mike Davis playing them on Radio 1, & 2013 festival appearances aside from Chagstock including Glastonbury, Download & Hard Rock Calling, this may well be the year they hit the big time.
