2017 Summer Festival - 24th - 28th August

We have certainly not been in hibernation over the recent winter months in fact, we have been working on a whole range of very exciting plans for this year’s summer festival. Already established as one of the leading music festivals in the UK, our 2017 programme will be exciting and dynamic as always, with a carefully selected number of world class concerts, presented to the highest quality at intimate venues. We welcome families and music aficionados to attend our fun and vibrant event, with many thousands expected to attend the beautiful town of Rye at the end of August.

Now in its 6th year, the 2017 summer festival will take place from Thursday 24th – Monday 28th August, and as usual the festival will encompasses the August bank holiday weekend.

Expect the very best internationally acclaimed artists within, Blues, Soul, Jazz, Folk and contemporary music to grace the festival this coming August. There will also be many free music events taking place at locations within Rye showcasing, and featuring the musical talent from Rye, and the South East.

Free music will also take place at our dedicated outdoor performance locations at the Kino Cinema outdoor stage, and the Butter Market below the Rye Town Hall. The eclectic mix of Cuban, Blues, Swing, Latin and the foot stomping rhythms of New Orleans, will guarantee a really fun time for everyone over the festival.

Make sure you put the dates in your diary, and be sure to book your accommodation in advance… we don’t want you missing out on what will be an amazing festival this year.
