Stonedeaf Festival 2018

Stonedeaf Banner

24-25th August 2018


Stonedeaf Festival the new festival on the block has announced some of the greatest rock acts in the world earlier this year. Going to any hard rock music festival these days involves a huge expense and the camping is so far away from the festival site. Not at Stonedeaf Festival, we have excellent value tickets which can include camping right next to the arena. Those arriving on the 24th August will be able to listen and perhaps take part in TOTAL ROCK ‘s commemoration of their Friday night show to the late Tommy Vance (following his daughters permission to dedicate our stage to him). Fans arriving on the Friday afternoon will be able to listen to gain access to the Pavillion where the magic takes place.

Stonedeaf Festival is going to recreate going to a hard rock festival of the 80’s and 90’s but in a new and exciting way, incorporating all the parts of historic festivals like Donington and Monsters of Rock that are remembered and loved mainly the the awesome music! We are including great new features such as parking and camping near to the arena, access to toilets, showers, good food and great beer! Stonedeaf’s stellar line-up is bound to excite both classic and new rock fans in championing new acts who have the same uncompromising, thrilling ethos of true hard rock as well as the established names on the billing. Explaining the reasons for Stonedeaf, the organisers say: “We’re a group of veteran rockers who spent every year waiting for that one magical day in the calendar: Monsters Of Rock.”

“We shared our stories and that evolved into a feeling of loss. What happened to buying a festival ticket that didn’t involve having to take out a second mortgage? Having one stage, half-a-dozen fantastic bands, crashing out back at your tent and talking to your mates about the day? Then packing up and going back to the real world on Sunday?”

“Our aim is to take a mix of established and up-and-coming bands with that classic rock sound. If you ever wanted to experience a true music heavy metal rock festival, you’ll love Stonedeaf.”

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
