The event, which has gone from two to three days and is sponsored by Ab InBev, generated over half a million pounds in 2013.
Artists lining up for the three day open-air concert include; Dizzee Rascal, Razorlight, The Hoosiers, The Feeling and The Big Reunion as well as showcasing the talents of local bands. The event will take place at Chester Racecourse, one of the venues in Horseradish’s portfolio, which with 60 acres inside of the racetrack is perfect for outdoor events of this nature.
Horseradish will oversee all aspects of the event’s organisation from ticket sales, logistics and hospitality through to public catering. A record crowd of more than 15,000 people attended the event in 2013 to see acts such as Jessie J, The Wanted, Union J and Lawson.
Kate Dawson, Head of Sales at Horseradish comments: “We’re excited to be working on Chester Rocks for what is a very exciting line-up. The event takes place in the height of the summer events period, falling between race meetings and polo tournaments – but it highlights our capacity to accommodate several large scale events within a short timeframe.”
Chester Racecourse Chief Executive, Richard Thomas says: “We’re thrilled to be hosting Chester Rocks again in June this year. It’s a key feature within the Chester events calendar. Due to the popularity of the event last year, the demand for the event has now exceeded just two days and this year we will introduce Friday evening to the weekend line-up.”
Event organiser, Lynsey Jones says: “The line-up this year has a broader appeal than ever before and we’re also delighted to be showcasing local talent; we hope to see another record breaking attendance over the three days.”
