The Big Chill has come a long way since 1994 when Pete Lawrence and Katrina Larkin organised a series of parties at the Union Chapel in north London. The following it began life as an outdoor festival with an event in the Black Mountains of Wales.  The Big Chill Festival has also been held at other venues around the UK including Lulworth Castle in Dorset and Larmer Tree Gardens.

In 2009 ChillFest Limited went into liquidation after poor ticket sales and was bought out by Festival Republic, the organisers of Latitude, Leeds and Reading Music Festivals.

The Big Chill Festival 2010 takes place between Thursday 5th and Sunday 8th August at Eastnor Castle Deer Park, Malvern Hills, Herefordshire.

This year’s main stage (Deer Park Stage) headliners are Massive Attack, M.I.A. and Lily Allen with some top quality support including Thom Yorke, Roots Manuva, Paloma Faith, Magic Numbers, Newton Faulkner and personally favourites Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions.

The smaller Revellers’ Stage has some great acts too – Kruder & Dorfmeister, Layo & Bushwacka, Mr Scruff, Easy Star All-Stars as well as Kelis, Plan B, Tinie Tempah and Roy Ayers, among others.

Other personal highlights of interest appearing at one of the other 10 stages, tents or areas include The Hundred In The Hand, Liars, Caribou and London Elektricity.

Furthermore, there will be plenty of DJ sets including the likes of from Andrew Weatherall, Don Letts, Tom Middleton and Greg Wilson; and Peter Hook & Howard Marks, Harry Shearer (Spinal Tap’s Derek Smalls & voice of The Simpsons) and Paul Morley discussing Michael Jackson in the Words In Motion Tent.
