The festival in its second year diversified and brought an element of rock'n'roll to the festival with their very own touch of ROCK stage.

This year, the festival was all under cover so despite the rain everyone was dry.

The charity the festival championed, Millie Beas Walking Wish, raised a fantastic £600 from the stall they ran. 

The charity is funding little two year old Millies operation which isn’t funded by the NHS plus the physiotherapy she will need afterwards.

Festival director Lorraine Conkey said: “All the bands and artists that took part in the festival were brilliant, the team of volunteers that came together to put this event on for the public are right in being proud of what they achieved.

"The support we get from local papers and local radio stations is amazing, Cannock Chase Radio, Stafford FM and 6 Towns Radio really get behind the event .

"We are re branding and tweaking the festival for next year and re naming ‘Staffs Fest’ the festival is also being brought forward to the spring bank holiday, the weekend commencing the 26th May. 

"We will keep the price as low as we can, with camping included as well as access to Lower Drayton Fun Farm and children under 14 will have free entry, a great way to introduce children to live music in a safe environment  and a cheap break away for all the family. 

"We are going to overseeing a 'battle of the school bands’ in conjunction with local band The Rockdogs , the winning band will open the festival in May".
