Description:This is a non commercial festival dedicated to improving the community.
Newstead Village, established with the opening of the coal mine over a century ago had it’s community devastated by its closure in 1987. While the village still suffers from deprivation, as a community Newstead has exceptional spirit and a can-do attitude. The passion of the community was recognized when it won a place on the Village SOS programme – set up by BBC One and Big Lottery Fund to inspire a rural regeneration via social enterprise.

Newstead’s bid included using the experience gained from putting on Treefest - a community festival which has now been running successfully for 10 years – to create a new music festival for the East Midlands - Headstock. The vision is to create a laid back, family friendly, eclectic, quirky and inspirational festival which grows to a three day festival becoming a hotly anticipated event on the UK festival calendar.
