5 years ago
A Brit Award nominated multi-platinum selling artist and a full symphony orchestra recreating the classic sounds of Ibiza are amongst the first acts to be announced by Deva Fest, which takes place at Chester Lakes, Dodleston on the weekend of the 6th to the 8th of September.
Saturday’s headline act is The Feeling who sold over 1.5 million copies of their “Twelve Stops and Home” album worldwide. With hit singles including “Fill My Little World”, “Love it When You Call”, “Sewn” and “Never be Lonely” the iconic band have a string of awards to their name.
Sunday sees the spectacle of renowned DJ Andy Joyce bringing his Symphonic Ibiza Collective to Deva Fest. Fusing a thrilling live orchestra with high tempo beats this is a party like no other creating an entirely new experience which celebrates the classics of Ibiza from the last 30 years.
Friday evening is a party night and a half with local favourites high energy rhythm and blues band Zoot Serious and the Bellyful of Bop kicking Deva Fest off in style with their crowd-pleasing classics and unique performance style whilst The Bavarian Strollers will oversee a Bierkeller in the Big Top.
Helping to celebrate the spectacle of Carnival Day on Saturday The Feeling are joined by versatile Leeds duo The Dunwells (“Communicate”, “Will You Wait for Me”) who have sold out shows across the UK and recently supported Elbow and Ryan Adams on tour.
Sunday is a day filled with colour and life as we head back to the Old School with Symphonic Ibiza and they are joined on the line up by K-Klass (“Rhythm is a Mystery”, “Let Me Show You”) who are responsible for some of the biggest dance tracks ever made.
More acts will be announced in the coming weeks.
A collaboration between We Love Good Times and Taste Cheshire, Deva Fest will be a party of music, food and drink, Roman Gladiators, parades, fairground rides and lots of fun for every member of the family. There will be over 70 different food and drink offers, local chefs cooking, fairground rides included in the entrance price and even a shuttle bus running at the start and end of the days to and from Chester Railway Station.
There will be no need to worry about the weather as the main stage will be in a huge circus style big top, and there will be prizes on both Saturday and Sunday for the best dressed festival goers.
For those who want to stay and play camping will be available on the Festival field – either bring your own or book a pre-erected tent with everything you need to stay in comfort via partner providers Z.I.P. There will also be a dedicated area for camper vans and caravans. Additional costs apply for pre-erected tents.

“We’ve worked really hard to put together a great line up of entertainment for Deva Fest and there will be more announcements of bands and acts being added to the line up over the coming weeks” said promoter Phil Marston. “There will be something for all age ranges and we have kept ticket prices as reasonable as we can to encourage everyone to come and enjoy what will be a fabulous feast for the senses. There are a limited number of Early Bird tickets being now on sale at a discounted price. We don’t have a huge capacity and we have had an awful lot of interest in this year’s event so we would advised people to book early to avoid missing out”.
