DEVA FEST has announced more new additions to its line up for 2024, including an ex-soap star and a character from the now infamous Glasgow Willy Wonka Experience.

The festival, which will take place at Cholmondeley Castle, will bring music, entertainment, and family fun this summer from August 8 until August 11.

This year, Deva Fest introduces the enchanting Kaleidoscope Kingdom, a haven of free family activities guaranteed to delight young and old alike. Expect storytelling, water slides, inflatables, family raves, NERF gun battles, immersive science, music and comedy from The Grand Cavalcade and so much more. 

Kaleidoscope Kingdom will be the go-to place for family fun throughout the weekend before the Sensus Stage acts take over as the sun sets, with Rui Da Silva, K-Klass and Ultrabeat heading the fully loaded dance and house music line-up.

Viral sensation ‘Barrioke’ has been added to Sunday’s list of acts. Ex-soap star Shaun Williamson, best known for playing Barry Evans in EastEnders, will be bringing his wildly successful ‘Barrioke’ party to the Deva Fest stage, ready to serenade the crowd with an array of karaoke classics. 

Also making their Deva Fest debut is the Oompa Loompa from the now infamous Glasgow Willy Wonka Experience. Played by Kirsty Paterson, the actress went viral earlier this year when the disastrous event hit headlines for its underwhelming delivery and will be providing the ultimate photo opportunity for this year's festival guests. 

The new additions will be in great company alongside already announced acts like The Human League, Rebecca Ferguson and The Coral.

“We are delighted to announce the expansion of Deva Fest 2024 with the introduction of Kaleidoscope Kingdom and even more acts to our already extensive line-up,” said festival organiser, Phil Marston.

“When we say Deva Fest is the festival created with guests at the centre, we truly mean it and are constantly looking for new acts, activities and extras, alongside the already huge names on the bill, to ensure there’s something for everyone included in our ticket price.”

Tickets for Deva Fest are already on sale and selling fast, with final Deer Park camping pitches released last week and weekend, day and glamping tickets still available.
