Christmas 2021 should be about giving local experiences and shopping local too, and by giving the gift of tickets to Deva Fest this year, you can do both!
Deva Fest is the Chester festival jam-packed with international artists, and despite being missed in 2020 and 2021, we have seriously ramped up the good times for 2022, ensuring our position as the top-rated great value family festival for all ages.
The event takes place at Chester Lakes, Dodleston from 12th to 14th August. Chester Lakes is quite the setting, with plenty of open green spaces, and a range of camping options providing the perfect escape between all the music, fun and frivolity. Deva Fest is just the ticket for those looking to combine the best UK staycation with a carnival time in the great outdoors.
Friday is Old School Dance Day, as Symphonic Ibiza return to the main stage with vocalists, a full symphony orchestra and DJ Andy Joyce mixing up the club magic to recreate the classics of the White Isle. Sonique also brings her infamous house classics to the party, with many more dance acts taking us back to the heydays of Ibiza anthems.
Saturday is Pirate Day with parades and processions, and you may even spot a pirate ship appearing on the horizon… Expect some epic headliners including everyone’s favourite kitchen disco-diva Sophie Ellis-Bextor, plus Madchester legend Heather Small with the music of M People, and so much more.
Festival Sunday will seriously rock, with Dodgy providing the soundtrack to your life and everyone’s favourite sing-along festival band Scouting for Girls headlining on the main stage.
The Deva Fest bars will be provided by the much-loved Liquor & Co. team serving cocktails, great beer, soft drinks, zero-alcohol options and so much more, and new to 2022 is the Gin & Prosecco festival in the fields, in its very own 300 seater VIP Tipi.
Our second stage has a full programme of super-talented local bands and artists, and Deva Laughs will feature live comedy from Alexanders every evening.
We pride ourselves on being the festival built with you in mind, so all fairground rides are free to use. There will be shuttle busses running from Ellesmere Port, Chester, and Wrexham (just £1 return with all proceeds going to climate change charity Mersey Forest), and the very best street food, selected by We Love Good Times and Taste Cheshire.
Show your friends and family some Deva Love this Christmas!
