The Sweetchunks Band

Saturday 27th April 2024

The Sweetchunks band is a three piece (sometimes four piece, if our violin player has escaped the clutches of the law) comedy folk band from Hampshire. Celebrating their tenth year of gallivanting around the country playing drinking music (that’s comedy folk music to normal people) with a raucous and unique set of hilarious originals that have been described as witty, original and hilariously funny. The Sweetchunks Band are a fun and energetic addition to any festival. With a loyal following of nutters they fill any tent or stage with their mobile party. It’s like the venga bus..but drunk and with banjos.

Previous Festival appearances included: Gig in a field, Nah then, HeFF, Bearded Theory, The Isle of Wight Festival, Victorious Festival, Boomtown and a triumphant set to a filled Bimble inn at Beautiful Days festival.

​“The Sweetchunks Band are one of the funniest bands I have ever seen, Singing fun sing-alongs and brilliant original songs. Sweetchunks brought their own party atmosphere with them. Imagine Tenacious D if fronted by Brian Blessed"

Opening on the night will be Brian Stone and the Masters of None.
