This festival is for cool kids and happening parents.  A family event for festival lovers who have suddenly found themselves with offspring, yet not ready to give up and spend their summer in the back garden listening to the radio.  The grounds it's held on are a back garden, but it's the back garden of a castle, Eastnor Castle, which also has a wood, an arboretum and four lakes, and the vibe is relaxed, but with the live music edge you just can't replicate at home. 

The Big Chill started as a series of ambient parties but has grown into a highly visual, arty, festival known for its unusual line up and good stalls - for food and for new age-y treats.  As it grows the number of stages grow too, and the variety of music expands, but it's usually set up around one large stage, and attended by a core collection of DJs each year.
