The 3th Beechstock event will take place for in August 2011, at the usual location, the extensive grounds of the Beech Tree Pub in Hazlemere, High Wycombe. However with Beechstock 2012 expecting an audience of at least 10,000 over 3 days, it has outgrown the local pub and eating house and will be held in an as of yet unspecified location around the High Wycombe area.

The event runs all day for three days, with beer and food tents, camping and parking. Beechstock welcomes all genres of music as well as non-musical acts, such as dance and comedy acts. The artists and bands tend to play for free due the charity nature of the festival and the extensive promotion and advertising campaign. However, compensation for headline acts is negotiable. The charity of choice is the Mayor of High Wycombe's charity the Pepper Foundation, who provide specialist nursing care for children with life-limiting conditions and support to their families, 24 hours a day, 365 day a year.

Beechstock 2012 is still in the planning stages with specific dates, locations, etc. arriving shortly. Visit their website for current information.
