Isaac Hayes now confirmed on an already heavyweight bill, for this year's Big Chill which reconvenes at Eastnor Castle Deer Park, Malvern Hills, Herefordshire on August 3-5.

Already 13 this year the first Big Chill event started back in '94 at the Union Chapel in Islington, London. The festival itself is a year younger, with the first festival starting in 1995 at the Black Mountains in Wales.

Co-founders Pete Lawrence and Katrina Larkin have supported a Leave No Trace policy since the early years, and are in discussion re: various local and global environmental projects. The Big Chill excels in promoting a wide range of established and emerging talent from the worlds of Music, Art, Digital Media, Comedy and Theatre, offering the best all-round, surround sound entertainment, within the beautiful setting of Great Malvern.
