August 13th and 14th–Hardwick Hall, Sedgefield, County Durham–DOWN TO THE WOODS MUSIC FESTIVAL
For those in the UK or planning a trip to the UK this summer, you should really travel up to the beautiful northeastern region and plan to attend the Down To The Woods music festival in County Durham. This family-oriented festival which caters to campers has an incredible line-up and the price is right–£99 adult weekend ticket. This is unheard of in today’s festival market and a memorable way to spend a summer weekend. Rock At Night is planning to be there!!
Multi-platinum selling Chase and Status have incredibly been added to the bill as one of the headliners alongside Scottish legends Primal Scream, with platinum selling Catfish and the Bottlemen, undoubtedly one of the most exciting guitar bands to hit the music industry in a decade, also added to the bill.
Chase and Status, set to headline 50,000 capacity festivals elsewhere, will be headlining the 10,000 capacity Down To The Woods. The duo, known for their incendiary live performances, bang out their multiple number ones with tracks like Blind Faith. The exponents of drum and bass have also produced tracks for the likes of mammoth acts such as Rhianna and Rita Ora and Example and with fans such as Pharrell Williams and Jay Z, the Down To The Woods crowd are assured of a huge performance.
“Chase & Status haven’t performed live in this set up for a number of years,” said event organiser Jonathan Woodliffe, “so it’s a massive coup for us to bag them for Down To The Woods and let our festival-goers enjoy a superb festival at an incredibly affordable price”.
Saturday will see Primal Scream headline the 10,000 capacity family-friendly festival, while Sunday is in the hands of Chase & Status. Other acts on the bill across the weekend include Catfish and the Bottlemen, Echo & The Bunnymen, Peter Hook & The Light and many more.
The line-up for a third stage, the Badgers Den, will be announced shortly and will have a focus on DJs and live comedy.

I grew up in a household full of rock music, studied journalism in college, and then became a scientist.Although my science career has served me well, music has always played a major role in my life. I grew up reading "Creem" magazine; I play several musical instruments as a "hobby";and it seems a camera has always been in my hand. Now, I am combining what I love the most--music and photography--serving as editor of Rock At Night. My motto: life is short...no regrets. Chyrisse
