Hopestock 2021 - 103


What's the craic?!

Hopestock is a private, invite-only festival presenting a unique environment to both party with mates and have a great family experience, all rolled in one awesome event! With the general challenges of life in and around work and parenting I don’t see most of my friends as often as I’d like and group get-togethers feel like a rarity these days. Imagine a weekend where kids and adults alike can spend quality time together, where we can let our hair down,  get trousered and have a dance to some awesome music…. well here it is!!

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an afterthought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.

2 days of fun!

back by popular demand

Following the success of Hopestock 2021 we are back by popular demand in July 2023 with an incredible line up of bands across two days, Leeds’ finest DJs and even more fun crammed in for the kids! If you attended in 2021, the format is by and large the same. We’ll be at the same site located near Almscliffe Cragg, between Leeds and Harrogate – a perfectly sized field in a very picturesque spot. There’s loads of flat space ideal for camping so bring your own tent / campervan or treat yourself to a glamping bell tent. If camping isn’t your thing there are local BnBs, hotels in nearby Harrogate and the site is close enough to Leeds to day trip it by taxi.

tell me more

The event will be a small festival with all that you’d expect from that. We will have large marquee tents to provide cover for both the bar and our seating area, a festival stage, kids tent, festoon lighting to light up the festival area and of course conveniences like toilets.

All tickets include free soft drinks. The all-inclusive booze pass gives you unlimited access to anything you could want. We’ll have a manned bar serving up quality cocktails, premium-brand spirits & mixers, wine and fizz. There’ll be self-serve hand pull real ale from our friends at Ilkley Brewery and cold boxes full of lagers, craft beers and ciders.

Taking place early in the school holidays, it’s a 2 day event with entertainment kicking off at midday on the Friday with kids’ fun and an afternoon of live music before the return of our ‘Rave In A Field’ party. Saturday is a full day affair with kids’ activities in the morning before another afternoon and evening of live music and DJ sets. Once again we’ll have our fire-pit area set up for an acoustic carry-on into the early hours for those who want to. The What’s On page will be updated as acts and activities are confirmed.

see you next time!
