Review: Devauden Festival 2019
The sleepy town of Devauden near Chepstow doesn’t immediately strike itself a festive town, with it’s long wounding country lanes and rolling hilltops, you’d be forgiven for thinking that its population consisted of 1 farmer, 3 chickens and a sheep.
That is of course until Devauden Festival. 2 days of music from acts both local and from further afield. It’s a line up that’s varied and catering for all audiences.
A mix of bands from around the place, expect a mix of folk, funk, rock and even a choir. It's a nice variety that keeps you guessing.
The crowd is certainly a local community. Everyone seems to know each other, yet they’re also open, warm and friendly, particularly to folks who’re new or have travelled. Thrown into the mix is the devoted followers who trek from far and wide for their love of Devauden!
The bar stocks a healthy range of local beers, with prices you can’t argue with. Yes, the drink certainly flows freely in Devauden.
Children are more than catered for, with a full play park for them to keep busy. A host of catering options keep you from going hungry and a variety of stalls and entertainers (including fire breathers!) offer something to do besides the music.
To top it all off, the main field where the music takes place has the most incredible view, rolling hills as far as the eye can see.
Overall, the festival gets a big tick in our book. We highly recommend that you check it out next year.
