We are very excited to include a whole new area for CockRock Michigan 2011!
We intend to create intimate Green area that attracts friendly free-spirited people and are delighted that the folks at High Head Green Gathering from just up the road at Plumpton will be helping us to create a fab new area.
The Green Area will be powered by renewable energy and will play host to a variety of new additions to the festival, with lots of live music and entertainment, lovely food stalls and cafe’s,workshops, ethical market, healing area and some fun activities for the kids!
The Green area will be as green as possible with minimal impact on the environment and we hope that everyone that attends will help us make this happen. There will be a generators for rent policy and we will endeavor to use alternative energy wherever possible in this area. The green area team will also be promoting recycling throughout the festival weekend.
Music & Entertainment
Within the green area we will have some new music venues where we will be showcasing bands such as ‘Man at the Window’ who have previously played Nottinghill Carnival, The Wickerman Festival and Eden Festival as well as some fab acoustic artists. We will also have some plug n play areas which will be an open mic stage for all budding musicians who want to have a go!
We will also have performances from magicians and CockRock favourites Astral Circus who will enchant the crowds and Mary the Faerie who will be back to sprinkle some sparkly Faerie magic!
Workshops & Activities
There will be a variety of workshops across the whole festival site but these will mainly be concentrated in the Green area with lots of things to do for the kids such as Circus Skills workshops, MokyKidz workshops, the UV Sand Pit as well as Young Cumbria who will be doing Guitar Hero & other workshops and The Backroom Project at Aspatria who will be doing drumming workshops.
More info will be upload on workshops, activities and kidz activities shortly.
To keep you lovely and relaxed we will be including healers in our new our new green area.
There will also be a limited area for those of you who wish to camp in the Green Area . Also new for CockRock2011 is our Yippee Yurts.
