Popular family friendly festival returns with more attractions then ever

DEVA Fest 2022 is promising to be the most spectacular and entertaining family festival in the region when it returns this summer, with a host of new attractions.

The three-day music, food and lifestyle festival will take place from 12-14 August 2022.

Festivalgoers can expect a brilliant boutique experience with a host of attractions and services included in the ticket price as part of the festival’s Deva Fest Difference – including free fairground rides, free parking and a daily £1 shuttle bus to and from the Chester Lakes site from as far afield as Wrexham and Ellesmere Port.

New additions made to what is the biggest and best line-up of events and activities yet include a special Mermaid Cove attraction which will boast amazing aquatic acrobatics from mermaids and mermen in a 10-metre-long tank.

There will be bubble discos and meet-and-greets, while the mermaids will take on Deva Fest’s dastardly swashbucklers on Pirate Saturday in what promises to be a real battle royal between land and sea.

Meanwhile singer-songwriter and pop-rap princess Betty Boo is the latest music star to join the Deva Fest family, appearing as part of a stellar all-female Saturday big stage line-up that also includes headliners Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Heather Small, along with Shola Ama and Belle Voci.

And the starry line-up on other days of the festival weekend features Scouting for Girls, Dodgy, Symphonic Ibiza and Sonique.

They will play on the main stage, which is located inside a big top, meaning the music will go on whatever the weather, while a second, open-air, stage will host a mixture of up-and-coming bands, DJs and local talent.

Along with the music there is lots to do for festivalgoers of all ages – in addition to Pirate Day on Saturday 13 August, complete with parades and fancy dress, there are also Stagecoach Chester drama, dance and song workshops, Laughter Tots messy and sensory play for little ones and much more still to be announced.

Deva Fest 2022 will also boast the Deva Laughs comedy tent, the hugely popular Gin and Prosecco Festival, a bespoke selection of high-quality food and drink options including bars run by Chester’s own Liquor & Co, and some of the best festival conveniences around as well as an NCT Chester breastfeeding and changing tent.

You can also make a holiday weekend of it with camping weekend tickets also available with toilet and shower facilities.

Full camping details and prices are on the website.
