August 24th to 27th 2018 Save the dates and join us in Rye to celebrate our 7th annual festival in the beautiful and historic town of Rye, East Sussex. The festival is now firmly established over the August bank holiday weekend as one of the leading boutique music festivals in the UK, with an ever growing reputation for quality, diversity and audience engagement. Our festival programme grows year on year which attracts greater audiences from across the UK and the region to attend world class headline concerts with internationally acclaimed artists, many free music events and fringe activities at many venues across the town.
The 2018 festival programme will include several headline concerts which will take place at the stunning setting of St Mary’s church. In addition we will be presenting many free and subsidised music events with multiple music performances over three days on a dedicated outdoor performance stage and showcasing emerging, established regional and local talent.
In 2018 we are also introducing educational workshops, masterclasses, photography, art, jazz for kids and a strong food and drink element to the overall festival programme.
Each year we raise the bar higher and always look to introduce new events to make your experience better.
We are already in discussion with a number of highly acclaimed artists and musicians to perform in August 2018.
We know that music inspires, unites and creates so much enjoyment for so many, and we look forward to seeing you in Rye at the end of August 2018.
Please watch out for announcements over the coming months and thank you to all of you that have attended the festival over the years.
