Rockstock certainly loves a challenge and we've been thrown a good 'un this time.  
 
Due to circumstances beyond our control we have to tell you that Rockstock will not be held at the Chimneys this year.  This decision is out of our hands and down to the Corporate giants Calon who own the ex-power station complex.  After bowing down to all of their demands they now think its ok to halt an event after nearly a years planning and investment.  
 
Since we found out early this week, we have worked tirelessly meeting with other venue owners and keeping 'business as normal'.  Unfortunately we have concluded that it is logistically unfeasible to deconstruct and reorganise the event with just 2 weeks till build starts.  We are gutted.  Our confidence and souls are battered.  
 
As loyal bears, early doors and seasoned Rockstockers you know that we don't do half a job and we stretch ourselves overtime to bring you a full on, yet intimate grass roots event with a massive line up.  We don't want to compromise the Rockstock experience that we are noted for.  Everything is geared around producing Rockstock at The Chimneys and we feel that it is impossible to make this happen, safely and securely at an alternative venue at such short notice.  
 
With this in mind, we are therefore postponing Rockstock until Spring 2019.  We have found a new site that is perfect and are currently working on a plan that will enable us to move to our new home.  
 
We'd like to make it clear that this is not down to Ange and Dave, who have been our accommodating hosts since 2015, nor have we cancelled Rockstock.  
 

We know how great you lot are and will support us through this crisis.  We hope that you will be able to trust us and give us a little time to be in a position to give you the venue details and dates.  The Rockstock business plan is robust, but someone else who has no care or idea what it’s like to create something from scratch, that’s full of soul, love, creativity and passion has just broken it.  So now we need to fix it (and fix it we will).  If anybody feels differently to this and prefers a refund of their ticket money please email 

 
Please bear with us while we do what is necessary.  
 
Much Love Debbo and Phily (Festival Re-Organisers) and our wonderful team of smiley helpers that make Rockstock happen.
