The Big Chill which is held at Eastnor Castle Deer Park every August has been sold to Festival Republic. Festival Republic is responsible for a number of well known festivals including Glastonbury, Leeds and Reading Festival.
Chillfest, the company that owned The Big Chill have gone into administration and Katrina Larkin the co-founder of the festival has said “the festival had become so big and meant so much to a lot of people that we didn’t want it to go under, as many have, we felt the responsible thing to do was not to sell tickets but to look for a buyer to guarantee its future.”
Eastnor Castle is looking forward to working with Festival Republic and believes the festival will continue to go from strength to strength.
The Big Chill will take place at Eastnor Castle Deer Park from Thursday 5 to Sunday 8 August 2010.
