About us

The Rising is a collective of creative minds with purpose to deliver an affordable, ethical and sustainable event that is welcome to all.


You can find us on the Kibblestone International Scout Campsite just south of Stoke on Trent. A 98-acre site with loads of room for us to build a creative and special home.

The site itself is at :

Kibblestone Road,
ST15 8UJ


Gates open for 2pm on Thursday for Early Entry Ticket Holders and at 10am on Friday & Saturday for standard weekend ticket holders.


We will secure the best, affordable, food vendors and will ensure we get served good quality organic foods at sensible prices.

The real ale bar is being operated by local brewers from Stone.
