DOG-friendly music festival Woofstock is set to return to Powderham Castle for its 10th anniversary. 

The “pawsitively amazing” event will take place over three days from the evening of Friday, June 14 to Sunday, June 16.  

The line-up includes tribute acts covering Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, Elton John, Avril Lavigne, Paloma Faith and Dolly Parton. 

A Woofstock spokesperson said: “Pooches are more than welcome – and will be well-catered for with activities, demonstrations including police- and gun-dog displays and contests during which your pup can show off their agility, flyball skills and obedience.  

“They can even paint with their owners in the Pawcasso tent, and tuck into dog ice-cream. 

“But you don’t need to bring a four-legged friend to attend – there’s also a range of workshops on offer for human guests too – including circus skills, climbing wall and archery – and the kids will love Bounce Land!  

“There’s also a shopping village, delicious food, a range of speakers, a puppy area and a dog-friendly beach. 

“There’s something to keep everyone’s feet tapping and tails wagging across the weekend with brilliant tribute acts. There’s even an area for dogs to enjoy the music away from the stage to protect their sensitive ears.” 

Woofstock, which attracts thousands of visitors each year, was founded in 2014 by Heather and Carol Nesbitt-Bayley from Wembury in south Devon. 

“Woofstock is a festival of love,” Heather, 52, said.  

“Once you have been once, you’ll be hooked - people come from around the world! Whilst the event is built with dogs in mind, you don’t need a dog to come. The music side of the festival is as equal to other music festivals in the UK. 

“There is no other festival like this in the UK. We don’t take everything too seriously. Woofstock is about having fun, meeting others and forging lifelong friendships. There is no reason not to come really – just don’t bring your cat! 

“Apart from spending time doing fun things with your dog, the best thing about Woofstock is being among like-minded souls.  

“The feel-good factor that comes from being surrounded by dogs and their dog-loving people, in an atmosphere which is totally chilled, is difficult to quantify and we would urge anyone who hasn’t experienced it to keep an eye on the website for details of future dates and venues.” 

The line-up on Friday from 5pm is Joanna Cooke, Dua Lipa, Young Elton, Avril Lavinge and headliners I Love Amp featuring Kat Savage; on Saturday from 5pm Superstition, Definitely Dolly, Adam Parker Brown as Tom Jones, Pure Paloma and headliner Katy Ellis as Taylor Swift; on Sunday RSVP Bhangra, Joanna Cooke plus band and headliner Fleetwood Shack. 

Day tickets start from £11.50 for adults. For an extra £60 you can bring a tent, camper or caravan and camp for the weekend. You can also have a glamping experience in a bell tent from £400 with VIP tickets.
