FAQ's

Hey there!

We have an extensive list of FAQ’s below, if you don’t find what you are looking for please get in touch using the form at the bottom of this page…

Yes – there are plenty of options to stay and play at Deva Fest. If you want to camp then you must buy a camping weekend ticket (standard weekend tickets do not include camping). Your camping ticket includes all activities during the 3 days of your stay. The camping field is right next to the festival field. If you want to upgrade your experience head to the camping page and book a pre-erected tent with our partners Z.I.P. – their tents are in an exclusive area and you can pre-book all the comforts of home such as airbeds and ground mats. Camper Vans and Caravans are also accommodated – head to the Camping page to find out about that

Yes, dogs are welcome but we expect them to be on leads at all times and that you clean up after them. 

You can check in anytime from 2.00pm on Friday 6th September – but not before. Please do not arrive before 2.00pm as the site will not be ready.

Yes but only within designated areas and not within the festival field.

We have a tractor on site at pre-arranged times to move any bogged vehicles.

Each vehicle or tent is given a space of 8 metres x 8 metres.

We take our obligations to local residents very seriously and comply with the venue’s licence in relation to festival goers getting to and leaving the site, noise pollution and the times at which the event opens and closes. Contact hello@devafest.co.uk if you have any questions for the organisers.

The site at Deva Fest is fairly flat and compact and we do not anticipate access issues for those with mobility problems or small children. Parking is very close to the festival field and Big Top for day visitors. If you have any concerns or specific enquires please get in touch by mailing hello@devafest.co.uk or using the form below

Deva Fest is an e-ticketed event. Physical tickets will not be posted to you. Our main ticketing partner is Skiddle and they will email you your ticket(s) with a bar code. The bar code will be scanned when you arrive at the festival and exchanged for a wristband to access the event.  Either print the ticket at home with a good quality printer or show it on your mobile device when you arrive to gain entrance.

All tickets purchased for Deva Fest are non-refundable

No bags larger than a hand bag may be brought onto the festival field and no food and drink may be brought in. All bags will be searched. Please have bags open when you arrive ready to be searched to prevent delays

Deva Fest is a music, food, drink and lifestyle festival like no other. There are opportunities to come to our event and sell everything from pizzas to face painting and beer to banjos. We will be taking trade applications later in the year. Email trade@devafest.co.uk to register your interest.

We can’t control the Great British weather, but we have planned Deva Fest to be as “weatherproof” as we can. The main music acts will perform indoors in our circus-style big top and there will be plenty of options to get under cover if it does rain.

Deva Fest is a family celebration infusing elements of entertainment, carnival, circus and showmanship. There will be elements of the Day of the Dead in our parade on Saturday. This event is not part of the Dia de los Muertos public holiday, which has significant religious meaning and many traditions that will not be present at Deva Fest. 

 

WHY NOT STAY?

Stay and play in the heart of the action with weekend tickets available for camping, caravans or camper vans.

Don’t fancy bringing your own tent? Our partners at Z.I.P. will erect a quality tent and you can even donate your bedding to our partners at Share Shop in Chester when the weekend is over.

Getting there!

Getting to Deva Fest couldn’t be easier……we will again run a bus shuttle service at the start and end of each day to and from Chester Railway Station free of charge, or there will be plenty of free parking on site close to the festival area.

Chester Lakes is just minutes from the A55 North Wales Expressway.
