Rock Oyster 2023 is shaping up to be a festival that is not to be missed with its stunning Cornish views, live music, and culinary treats there is something for everyone

The fast growing Cornish festival that offers musical and culinary treats has just added over 40 acts to their already star studded line-up. The new wave of acts will be joining headliners Nile Rodgers & Chic, Sophie Ellis Bextor, and Groove Armada. Acts including Mopes, Pattern Pusher, Isaac Gracie, and many more.

In addition to plenty of musical treats for the ears the festival also offers up some of the best that food has to offer. Chefs such as Emily Scott, Jack Stein, Andi Oliver and more will be in attendance whipping up storms of the culinary kind.

The festival has also announced news of a huge brand new area to the grounds called West Meadows, a Wild West themed, folksy, rootsy area where campers can unwind away from the bustle of the increasingly popular main stage. Sat at the heart of West Meadows, is a brand new stage, named THE HOWL (Cornish for Sun). The Howl will host over fifty acts throughout the weekend including Ferris & Sylvester, Land Of The Giants, Dr Meaker and a whole host more. Nestled alongside The Howl is Rock Oyster’s brand new Craft Ale Bar, showcasing a glug-worthy grouping of local craft ales alongside a selection of local ales from their Brewery Partner Sharps.

Highlights from 2022

Festival Director Lee Bater talks on the expansion “After the phenomenal success of the last two years, Rock Oyster is now firmly established as Cornwall’s destination food and music Festival. This year will see the Festival having doubled in size since 2021 and we wanted to continue to build out our offering as we grow.” He continues, “We’re excited about the potential to grow West Meadows into something very special and to bring The Howl to Rock Oyster. The Howl gives us another opportunity to showcase the best talent to our discerning family-friendly audience, all on a stage with a very different feel to the Oyster Stage. Alongside our new craft ale bar, Little Fish kids area, fairground and skate ramp. West Meadows also has that incredible view which makes the Festival so unique and special.”  

Located on the banks of the Camel Estuary on the stunning Cornish Coast, Rock Oyster promises to be a must add to your festival calendar. Taking place across four days (27-30 July 2023) you can expect the very best in food, music, and views.
