Dead Skull Coffee is proud to have been invited to be a sponsor at this years Stonedead Festival - not only will we be in the main Arena but backstage serving bands and crew along with the VIP and Press area.


Stonedeaf Productions Ltd was formed from a group of veteran rockers who way back when would spend every year, throughout the the 80’s and into the 90’s, at the legendary Monsters of Rock festival at Donington Park. We got together on the Donington Monsters of Rock & Download Veterans Facebook page to share our stories and tales of festivals gone by.

Swapping tales of those fantastic days at the Monsters of Rock festival made us all realise just how much we miss that magical experience.  When you didn’t have to pay for an overpriced ticket, you could pitch your tent next to your car with your friends and hang out with a few beers and JD’s the night before and wake up ready to rock! 

The Stonedead family has grown since the initial founding members and we now have an incredible gang of people taking care of everything to give you all the perfect festival experience, that we all miss and most definitely want

One Day. One Stage. One Monster Show…


Michael Schenker will be celebrating 50 years in the business in 2022, forty of which as a solo musician, meaning the Michael Schenker Group will be playing a very special 50th Anniversary Show and will take Newark by storm!

With his iconic black and white Dean Flying V and what can only be described as a supergroup surrounding him, they will bring us a headline show to remember.

Over an extensive career Michael Schenker has gifted his guitar prowess to two of the greatest rock bands in history, namely the Scorpions and UFO.

Forming the Michael Schenker Group in 1979. Post the iteration of Michael Schenker Fest with two albums in 2018 and 2019, MSG re-formed in 2020 bringing their latest album ‘Immortal’ to our attention early in 2021, even featuring a track by the name of ‘In Search Of The Peace Of Mind’ with Schenker himself stating it to be his 50th anniversary celebration song as it holds much meaning, being his very first musical composition at the age of 15.


Bridgend born five-piece band Those Damn Crows will be performing as our special guests at Stonedead Festival 2022!

After hitting the ground running and quickly building a dedicated fan base, the boys from the Valleys will be bringing their set to life in Newark, following an abundance of successful headline shows and prestigious festival appearances in the last few years. 

Now with two highly credited albums under their belt, Those Damn Crows are continuing to make waves in the modern rock genre as the NWOCR movement takes yet another step forward, providing the perfect platform to reach audiences of all ages. Whether you’re an old school rocker or new to the scene, the Welsh quintet will bring tracks from their debut album Murder and the Motive (2018) and Point of No Return (2021) that will have you toe tapping, head banging and everything in between.

Their passion and energy is undeniable, and their tenacity has already seen them achieve a sound that is unique to them whilst encapsulating everything good about old fashioned Rock n’ Roll.

Expect punchy crowd led choruses among an energetic performance from the ‘Crows, with vocalist Shane Greenhall bound to be leaping around the Tommy Vance stage in his now well known and celebrated adrenalized manner!


Named after guitarist Adrian Vandenberg, the Dutch-American outfit Vandenberg will be rolling in to Newark like a Freight Train.

Formed in the early 80s, producing three albums with Atlantic Records, Vandenberg saw success with their first single Burning Heart and toured the US with Ozzy and KISS and a subsequent independent tour. They later disbanded, with Vandenberg taking a stint with Whitesnake later in the decade. The band briefly reunited in 2004, but later reformed in 2020 with an all-new line up featuring Ronnie Romero on lead vocals, releasing their first studio album in 35 years.

Fast forward to 2021 and the announcement of new lead singer Mats Leven with his powerhouse vocals, and the word of new material, has rippled excitement through the hard rock genre and we cannot wait to welcome them to Stonedead!


Formed in 2013, Stone Broken from the West Midlands bring a show packed with anthemic guitar and inspiring lyrics, drawn from their own desires to live life to the fullest and unapologetically, providing a soundtrack to precious moments for many with their music. With influences from Shinedown, Black Stone Cherry, Halestorm and Alter Bridge, their sound is modern with a classic rock undertone.

With two albums under their belt, All In Time (2016) and Ain’t Always Easy (2018) the band has quickly risen in popularity and already have a huge fan base in the Broken Army, which continues to grow. We can’t wait to see them rock Stonedead 2022!
