This event has been and gone.
GuilFest has been consistently voted as one of the UK's best family festivals. Held in the idyllic location of Stoke Park, Guildford, visitors can expect a truly fantastic weekend, featuring 7 stages of live music. It's not just about the music at GuilFest though; around the site you can find the hilarious Cosmic Comedy Zone, the Theatre tent, the incredibly popular Farmer Giles Barn Dance, street theatre, arts and crafts, delicious food and drink from all over the globe, bars and cocktail bars, one of the best festival children's areas on the circuit, The KidZone, and much more besides. Also - back by popular demand and much larger for 2010 will be the jumping 70's disco tent!

We Are The Ocean
After forming in 2007, Essex four-piece We Are The Ocean quickly made a name for themselves after signing to UK indie powerhouse Hassle (Alexisonfire, Trash Talk, Cancer Bats) and receiving a nomination for Best British Newcomer. The band have been cemented as a powerhouse-in-waiting of UK rock, packed with colossal choruses. The sound of a young band taking some gigantic risks and hearing them pay off.

Chickenhawk is a raging schizophrenic multi-personality. Insanely original and musically adept the four members have fashioned a UK sound that stands up to the heavy avant guard of Naked City and Mr. Bungle whilst also having the riffs and head-banging nature of Melvins and Harvey Milk.

Up-and-coming Guildford-based metal band. "Ballsy rock with bass lines dirtier than you Grandmas g-string, gravel gurgling vocals, solos that Hendrix would be proud of, and percussion to make your ears bleed. What a great way to start the day!" - DV8 Magazine (Guilfest Review).

Riotous indie rockers from Nantwich and Crewe who take the melodic rock and punk-pop template made successful by the likes of Taking Back Sunday, You Me At Six and My Chemical Romance. Formed in 2009, they found themselves on the underground circuit for a while, but their 2014 album 'The Good Youth' finally saw them cross over to a wider audience, thanks to its catchy hooks, powerful riffs and a skill at writing bigger anthems than ever before.
