One of North Devon’s biggest music festivals returns this weekend as Pigstock celebrates its fifth birthday with a move to a new destination.
The Big Sheep at Abbotsham is providing a field next door and the theme park is also open to festival goers over the weekend.
Featuring live music from chart toppers Right Said Fred, The Hoosiers and West Country favourites, The Wurzels, Pigstock also has a street food village, free children’s entertainment and a comedy festival featuring top UK comedians.
Headline Saturday sees live music on stage throughout the day on the new site, while the action moves to The Big Sheep for the Chill Out Sunday.
As well as acoustic sessions from local musicians and bands the highlight of the day will be a comedy festival featuring perfomers including Angela Barnes and Louis Burgess.
Pigstock organiser, Matt Samuel said: “Pigstock has expanded over the years and it’s great to have a new site with lots of space to play with this year.
“The musical bill has something for everyone and of course The Big Sheep offers an extra dimension to the festival. We have a dedicated fan base of Pigstockers which grows every year, and they are in for a real treat this weekend.”
Rick Turner, from the Big Sheep, added: “We are hugely excited with Pigstock moving adjacent to The Big Sheep.
“This has enabled the event to be much bigger, with brilliant bands, much bigger numbers for the main stages on the Saturday and a whole extra day of music and comedy on the Sunday.”
