Teddy Rocks



Teddy Rocks Festival, a multi-award winning festival, is a vibrant, family-friendly three-day music event in Dorset. Founded in honour of Ted Newton, who at age 10 lost his battle with cancer, the festival channels its energy into combating children's cancer, with 100% of profits going directly to charity support and research. Since its humble beginnings in a local pub, Teddy Rocks has expanded to feature over 100 acts across six stages, blending international headliners with fresh, emerging talent.

Festival-goers can expect a line-up filled with nostalgic hits on Friday, electrifying performances with pyrotechnic displays on Saturday, and classic festival favourites to wind down on Sunday. Beyond the music, the festival boasts a variety of fun activities suitable for all ages, from fairground thrills and comedy tents to axe-throwing. With its independent spirit, intimate setting, and commitment to charity, Teddy Rocks offers an immersive festival experience where attendees can revel in top-tier production, savour award-winning local brews, and contribute to a noble cause—all within the stunning backdrop of Dorset’s valleys.
