When are the festivals?

Rockstock Gathering March 31st and April 1st 2017

Rockstock and Barrel - 29th/30th September 2017

How can I get to the festival?

It is a 10 minute walk from Willington Train Station and the Villager V3 bus stop. 

Willington is easily accessible from the M1, A50 and A38.  There is ample free car parking at the venue. 

Where is the festival?

Both festivals will be held at The Chimneys, Willington DE65 6PP

Do I need to buy a ticket?

Tickets can be purchased from the website. Your tickets will be posted to you within the month prior to the event. 

Only weekend tickets are available.  A small amount of day tickets will be released early September. 

All tickets are non-refundable or returnable.

All persons under the age of 16yrs need to be accompanied by a responsible adult.  Rockstock and Barrel reserve the right to check any individuals Identification on entry and throughout the festival.  

Can I camp at the Festival?

You can camp at the festival if you have pre-paid the camping option when you booked your tickets on our website.  The cost is £5 per tent, camper van or small caravan. £10 for a motorhome, large bus or horse box.   If you plan to erect an awning please purchase a further £5 unit ticket.  All towing & non-sleeping vehicles must be parked in the car park ( chimneys site only).  You may park next to your camping unit on the river campsite.

What are the two campsites?

We have two different campsites. 

The Chimneys camp is directly behind the venue, it is the busier, more industrious and right at the heart of the festival. This is sold out. 

The River camp is a short walk across the road adjacent to the River Trent, very scenic with a fabulous view of the old power station chimneys.  

Can I bring my own alcohol to the festival? 

You can bring your own alcoholic drinks to the festival to enjoy back at your camp.  It is a licenced premise and therefore you cannot take these into the festival arena. 

Can I apply to trade at Rockstock Gathering & Rockstock and Barrel Festival?
