Friday is Old School Dance Anthems Day

Our headline act on Friday needs no introduction – Symphonic Ibiza played Deva Fest in 2019 and brought the house down, so we are delighted to bring them back for 2020.  Cream DJ Andy Joyce will be joined by a full symphony orchestra conducted by Steve Etherington to re-imagine some of the biggest Dance Anthems known to man!

Dream Frequency are best known for some absolute old-school hands in the air bangers and they are heading to Deva Fest to recreate a classic 90s rave! Head back to 1992 for huge tunes like Take Me and Feel So Real as well as experiencing some new output from an act which played to everything from sold out stadiums to the night clubs of the North West back in the day.

Last year you went Bingo crazy for Bingo Bango. In fact lots of you said that they were your absolute highlight. Where else can you win a full sized cardboard cut out of Harry and Megan or an inflatable flamingo and put your hands in the air to some dance classics? The cheeky DJs are back this year for the eyes down full house bingo experience. Expect dancers, confetti and a smile as wide as the Nile.

More acts announced soon!

Saturday is Pirate Day

Saturday’s headliner is the pop princess and Ibiza livener Sophie Ellis-Bextor. Sophie shot to fame as a vocalist on Spiller’s huge number one single Groovejet and followed it up with Take Me Home and her worldwide smash hit, Murder on the Dancefloor. Her solo debut album went double platinum and she hasn’t looked back with a string of hits ever since.

Finalists from The Voice in 2018 Chester duo Belle Voci’s mantra is Opera For Everyone. Emily and Sophie’s mission is to spread opera and classical music far and wide. The dynamic duo will showcase their fresh take on some classics, as well as their twists on the new music of today. The highlight of their career to date is singing the National Anthem at the 2019 FA Cup Final and they have recently hit the top of the Classical Charts with their version of Coldplay’s The Scientist.

Sunday is Festival Day

Closing Deva Fest is a headline set from everyone’s favourite sing-along festival band Scouting for Girls! Four times Brit award-winners the boys will head to Deva Fest fresh from a sell-out UK tour. Their impressive back catalogue includes sing-along anthems She’s So Lovely and This Ain’t A Love Song, as well as new material from their recent Top 40 album, The Trouble With Boys.

Deva Fest wouldn’t be Deva Fest without the high energy rhythm and blues of festival favourites Zoot Serious & the Bellyful of Bop! Led by enigmatic front man Nick Haggart the collective will return to our big top stage to start the party with their crowd pleasing classics and unique performance style.

Joining Zoot on the support bill are local band Mississippi Riot, another act making a triumphant return from DF 2019. The boys will hit the stage with their high energy brand of guitar based tunes. These guys went down a storm last year so make sure you are ring side in the Big Top and ready to go for 2020!
