“Reverend and the Makers are the epitome of fun and reflect what Chase Park is all about: family fun in the sun for everyone.

I think that the calibre of artists is exceptionally high. I really love the atmosphere at Chase Park and because the event has no barriers it really lends its self to an audience of like-minded music fans, families and people of all abilities.”
