“We’re delighted to be headlining Teddy Rocks!. The festival does incredible work to raise money for children with cancer. It’s a cause that means a lot to this band, so to be able to headline the festival and play our own part will be amazing.” – Matthew Thomson, The Amazons

MAY 3rd – The Fratellis!

They’ve had 5 top 40 albums (3 hit top 10), 5 top 40 singles (2 hit top 10)… We ALL know “Chelsea Dagger”… This is going to be incredible. This is another huge day for us and we can’t wait to sing-a-long in the field with you all!

“The band can’t wait to headline Teddy Rocks 2020. We’ve been following the charity on social media for a while now and are delighted to be taking part in such a great event for a worthwhile cause that has always been close to our hearts.” – Baz Fratelli, The Fratellis

Teddy Rocks Festival started from humble beginnings in a country pub, The Greyhound Pub in Blandford, North Dorset in 2012. Founder of TRF, Tom Newton (29), wanted to help fundraise for the charity Teddy20 which was started by his parents to raise money for children and families fighting Cancer after the sad loss of his brother, Ted Newton, who was 10 years old when he lost his life to a rare bone cancer. 

 In 2016, Teddy Rocks moved to a bigger site to increase capacity and in 2017 the festival took the plunge and relocated to an even bigger premises and secured a permanent license at its new home, Charisworth Farm, in Blandford Forum, Dorset,  where it can offer weekend camping and car parking alongside 4 stages and a host of food vendors, bars, and activities.

In 2019, the festival raised a whopping £107,943.  To this day all profits received from the sale of tickets are donated to Teddy20. The festival has raised over £250,000 with help from previous headliners which include: The Darkness, The Zutons, Feeder, Ash, Twin Atlantic, Modestep, Scouting For Girls, From The Jam, The Hoosiers, and Don Broco. In 2016, Tom Newton was awarded The Daily Mirror’s Pride of Britain ITV Fundraiser of the Year in the Meridian West region and Fundraiser of the Year by the south’s leading radio station Wave 105.

“This years line up is something we are super proud of! We are honoured to have The Fratellis with a huge catalogue of hits and a great live show –  we cannot wait to bring them to Dorset. The Amazons have been doing huge things and smashing the tour circuit. With our production team on the case, it will be one hell of a show. Most importantly, It’s a truly wonderful way to keep Ted’s memory alive – Teddy Rocks Founder, Tom Newton
