Boutique Music Festival of 3 days of fantastic Folk Roots and Acoustic Music in the beautiful Kent countryside just 5 mins from J5 on M2. Family-friendly with under 18s FREE with accompanying adults*. Dogs (on leads) welcome. Evening entertainment provided in the bar area (The Cock) with Morris dancing, live music and Sing-a-rounds.

Camping on adjoining farmland available. If you require Disabled camping next to the festival arena please get in touch.

The festival started several years ago as an excuse for getting our musical friends together for a party, but in 2018 we decided to go public. The first 'official' Chickenstock took part in our horse paddock but it became clear that it needed a larger space. Our good friend and neighbour offered us use of his farm, which is on one side of a gentle valley and created a natural theatre!

We have always wanted the festival to support local enterprises. The bar stocks ales from the local Nelson Brewery amongst others and Turner's ciders. We also only charge £4 a pint. Local charities are also supported with Scouts providing cooked breakfasts in the camping fields to raise funds. Although a lot of the Acts are from further afield we also reserve several early spots for up and coming local bands.

Sustainability is also important to us, and we have asked all our food vendors to not use plastic if possible. We will be selling souvenir beer 'glasses' for £1 which can be used time and time again. Free water points will also be available for you to refill reusable water bottles. Recycling points will also be available so as much rubbish as possible can be recycled.

It friendly, it's fun. It's Kent's BIG little festival!
