After the fallow year, Grand Union Sound and the Stone Barn Crew are itching to get back on the farm for another brilliant Cock & Bull festival

We will be bringing the Grand Union Sound Meta System, which has graced the festival with its superb bass and crisp sound quality for the last few years, and as ever we’ll be making the barn sparkle each evening with better lights and decor and more visuals planned for this year.

On the DJ front we will have some familiar faces along with fresh blood to inject more dance floor energy.

Friday afternoon will see Robin Catto of Reggae Heaven welcoming guests to the festival with his glorious selection. Over the course of the evening we’ll gradually build the energy in the Stone Barn with DJs playing the finest in hip hop, funk, soul, afrobeat, electronica and outernational tropical grooves.

On Saturday morning we’ll kick things off with classic cartoons for the kids before screening some thought-provoking shorts. Then, after the success of 2016’s Saturday afternoon reggae dance, we’ll have DJs on rotation dropping a heavyweight selection spanning 50 years of sound system culture – bound to get you skanking…

After the procession, expect an uplifting live set from electronic wizards AE Hutch before we get down and dirty for the rest of the night, with DJs playing the broadest beats, spanning everything basswise, from heavyweight dub to jungle classics. Not for the faint-hearted, Saturday night in the Stone Barn is off the hook – bassface on!

Sunday will be for relaxing, reflecting and recovering – chilled tunes, short films, random talks and surprise live sets.  

We’re looking forward to catering to your dancing needs. See you on the Stone Barn dance floor at Cock & Bull 2018! If you haven’t got your festival tickets yet then get them here.
