Stonedeaf Festival

Overview

Stonedeaf Productions Ltd was formed from a group of veteran rockers who way back when would spend every year, throughout the the 80’s and into the 90’s, at the legendary Monsters of Rock festival in Donington Park. We got together on the Donington Monsters of Rock & Download Veterans facebook page to share our stories and tales of festivals gone past. Swapping stories of those fantastic days of Monsters of Rock festival made us all realise just how much we miss that old school festival vibe. When you didn’t have to pay for an overpriced ticket, you could pitch your tent next to you car with your friends and hang out with a few beers and JD’s the night before and wake up ready to rock! One day, 9 bands, crash out back at your tent, drive home Sunday and try and recover ready for work on Monday morning! The Stonedeaf family has grown since the initial founding members and we now have an incredible gang of people taking care of everything to give you all the perfect festival experience, that we all miss and most definitely want One Day. One Stage. One Monster Show………..

We have a dedicated team member, Sharron, whom you should contact if you have any specific needs. We will always do our absolute best to accommodate your requests. At the outset of Stonedeaf, we set out to make this festival enjoyable for all rock fans. Arena Facilities In the arena itself the ground is very flat with hard walkways around the perimeter and good drainage. All food and drink stands and merchandise stalls will be located close to the walkway. There will be a safe viewing platform which will be accommodate anybody who lets us know in advance they are coming. The viewing platform will be manned by volunteers to offer any help required and will be positioned to make sure you still feel part of the festival. Disabled toilets will be located close by. We have sheltered premises indoors where you can get away from the crowd and the noise for a while, sit down, relax and feel at home. This is going to be right next door to the first aid team. So, if you are feeling a bit fragile, you can still come along and enjoy yourself. In addition, there will be a fridge for medication and accessible toilet and shower facilities in a permanent structure (there will be portable toilets in the arena and campsite though). Campsite Facilities We have a designated disabled camping area, adjacent to the brick toilet and shower block (with disabled Ladies and Gents Toilets) and close to the arena. This area is next to staff camping and close to Festival HQ which will be manned 24 / 7 should you require assistance at any time. Car Parking A separate Disabled Parking area will be available for those who are only attending for the day to make it easier to return to your car should you need to at any point, along with a taxi drop off area at the arena entrance Any other questions… No animals/pets of any kind are allowed onsite with the exception of assistance animals PA tickets are free. After you purchase a ticket, please send us an email with your order number and some proof that you require a PA. This does not necessarily need to be a blue badge style document, just anything that demonstrates the need for one. At our festival HQ we will have the facility to charge wheelchairs / scooters, along with a fridge for storing mediation should this be required. Smoke machines, strobe lighting, fireworks and the effects may be in use at this event. Anyone affected by these should bear them in mind.
