The festival, which was shortlisted for Best Small Festival by the UK Festival Awards last year, has been run by the Brown family since 2005, when it started off on the back of a trailer on Morris Farm with around 150 people.

Now in its 11th year, the festival will see over 6000 people, 96 acts and 36 Djs. The fast-growing, and ever-popular event is a great alternative to V Fest in Chelmsford, and is helping put Essex well and truly on the festival map.

This year will see five stages, all home to different genres of music, and all offering a different experience:


Here you can see the most high profile acts, with DJ FRESH and format headlining on Friday night, Basement Jaxx and Sigma on Saturday, and Example+dj wire and The Darkness on Sunday. The main stage will also bare witness to up and comers, The Kubricks, the unforgettable The Hoosiers, and the likes of Raleigh Ritchie – AKA Grey Worm from Game of Thrones.


This is Brownstock’s number one dance tent, and transforms into a comedy club on Sunday. Friday’s lineup includes Grime artist Lethal Bizzle and ‘German Whip’ man Meridian Dan. Saturday will see Shadow Child and Bondax taking to the stage, with Sub Focus and Friction finishing on Sunday. A whole range of Djs will also perform in The Good Shed over the weekend, including; Dream McLean, Draig Cavid (great name!) and Culture Shock.


The Inn is home to the festival’s house music, with Too Damn Glam, Next Wave, and Cadre Movement, headlining over the three-day event. R. Devereux and T/Neb will make several appearances over the weekend, and will be joined by Vale Colvin, Scott Palmer and Lowris, to name a few.

One of the most amazing festival stages – hand built by Anna Brown into two old oak trees, The Treehouse Stage will host up and coming acts high up in the trees looking over the festival. Dojo and Anna McLuckie will take control on Friday, with Youth Club and a handful of Stealing Signs bands on the Saturday Night Takeover. Sunday will also see Midnight Barbers joined by Tom Prior, Jess Speakman and many more.
