BIG Music Festival in Cheltenham this Weekend, Especially for Dogs!

On Sunday 6th May, the UK’s leading pet wellbeing charity, PDSA will host PetLife Festival ’18, a one day music festival especially for dogs.

Taking place in Cheltenham, the festival is designed for music fans, pet lovers and their canine companions with a pawsome live music line-up featuring Kaiser Chiefs, Jessie J and The Vamps.

What better way to spend your bank holiday weekend, than treating your pooch to it’s very own music festival? Tickets for the festival are still available for the event with all proceeds going to PDSA to help provide life-saving veterinary care for the 470,000 sick and injured animals the charity cares for each year.

PDSA, wanted to celebrate their 100th birthday in style by creating this unique festival especially for dogs. There’s plenty of entertainment for pet and music lovers alike, with the music line-up featuring Kaiser Chiefs, Jessie J and The Vamps. How pawesome is that?

As well as the amazing live music line-up, visitors can explore a performance arena, a farmer’s market and food and shopping areas, a host of activities for your pooch including wellbeing zones, 2km and 5km walking routes, and dog training and play spaces.

When is it?

This Sunday 6th May. Doors open at 11am and close at 10:30pm.

How do we book?

Dogs must be registered in advance as places will be limited and available on a first come first served basis* Tickets are still available from the PSDA Petlife website.

What else is going on?

The Arena has a number of performances showing you just how trained your fury friend can be.  ‘Dog and Duck Show’ lets you ‘learn while you laugh’ as both trained and untrained sheep dogs heard ducks, displaying important lessons about dog psychology and behavioural issues in an interactive and surely entertaining way. While ‘Paws for thought’, as seen on Channel 4 Pet Roadshows and Discover Dogs, has trained rescue dogs jump through hoops of fire, ladder walk and perform snappy fun filled tricks that will wow the whole family.

If you’re feeling inspired you can head over to ‘The Green’ and take part in the Dog School’s host of expert classes. While the more adventurous can head to the K9 Aquasports stage where dogs perform in the ‘Big Splash’ in a show that’s sure to be wet and wild.

Who's performing?

A festival for pet lovers, the headliners are amongst the most excited. Multi-platinum-selling Jessie J, whose new album R.O.S.E. will be released this year, said: “My French Bulldog, Jackson, makes me smile every day. PDSA Petlife’18 combines people’s love of pets and music; two of my favourite things! I simply can’t wait.”

Kaiser Chiefs, will also be performing and the band’s frontman Ricky Wilson, owner of Labradoodle, Norman Reedus, said: “We’re all looking forward to PDSA PetLife’18 and raising funds and awareness for PDSA to continue its great work.”

James McVey from The Vamps, whose album Night & Day topped the album charts last summer, added: “My cat Mickey means the world to me. I know I can provide the vet care he needs, but not everyone is so fortunate and that’s why PDSA is so important.”
