DEVA Fest returns to Chester Lakes next summer with an unmissable line-up of fantastic festival events and faces – and now with a host of exciting new additions.

The three-day festival will take place from August 12-14, 2022, after this summer’s event was postponed due to ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic.

Organisers are promising the 2022 event will be bigger and better than ever, with new attractions including a special 300-seat Gin and Prosecco festival within the main festival site.

The team behind renowned Chester bars Liquor & Co and Craft & Company will be on hand to serve a range of cocktails and drinks throughout the three days.

A Comedy Tent – in association with Alexander’s Live of Chester – will also be at the Chester Lakes site with a line-up of household names taking to the stage during the festival weekend.

And festivalgoers are being offered a huge range of new camping options within the Chester Lakes complex, with pitches for tents, camper vans, caravans and RVs all just a stone’s throw from the Deva Fest action.

Meanwhile headliners Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Heather Small, Scouting for Girls, Dodgy, Symphonic Ibiza and Sonique have already confirmed they will play the new 2022 dates.

Deva Fest managing partner, Phil Marston, said: “Although it was obviously a disappointment to have to postpone this year’s Deva Fest, we certainly haven’t rested on our laurels and have been adding to the event, even in its absence.

“We’re really proud of the huge range of attractions planned for Deva Fest 2022. The music line-up is incredibly strong, while the addition of a comedy tent will really strengthen the breadth of the festival offer."

Hundreds of tickets for next year’s festival have also been given away in a special ballot exclusively for NHS staff and key workers.

Organisers have pledged tickets with a total value of more than £20,000 as a way of saying thank you for the hard work and dedication of key workers throughout the last 20 months.
