We have been delighted to have presented the festival in both 2022 and in 2023. Both festivals have been overwhelmingly positively received and attracted thousands of music fans and families to attend in both years with over 10,000 people attending the festival in 2023.
Our dynamic and wide-ranging programme of live music offers a wonderful choice and variety of music styles which includes, Jazz, Swing, Blues, Roots, Gospel, Soul, Funk, Latin, and Cuban music.
The festival programme includes World – Class ticketed headline concerts, exceptional outdoor music performances on a dedicated outdoor stage and fabulous live music at various fringe venues including hotels, restaurants, and pubs.
Our vision is to continue to bring wellbeing through the power of music; an artistic programme of quality, diversity and inclusivity that will engage the wider community, enhance tourism, and provide economic and cultural benefits to the beautiful town of Sidmouth, Devon, and the South West.
We continue to build the festival organically by raising the bar higher each year to including new and exciting events that appeal to a wide cross section of the public, music lovers and families.
The 2024 festival promises to be a landmark year as we present an outstanding programme of incredible artistes, with the addition of a superb free educational programme which includes workshops, masterclasses, and an array of live performances.
Accessibility and inclusion lay at the heart of our ethos with our vision to spread the learning, joy and positive benefits that music provides to us all.
We are a boutique festival by design and our ethos is quality over quantity.
As a festival, we are committed to developing mutually beneficial partnerships with local and regional corporate business partners and patrons.
Private patronage and corporate sponsorship packages are available for both individuals and businesses.
We invite you to support the festival and in return benefit from high profile branding opportunities and outstanding client hospitality.
We would be delighted to hear from local and regional musicians who would like the opportunity and platform to perform as part of the festival.
The festival is also looking for additional volunteers to join our team and be an integral part of our exciting annual festival in Sidmouth.
Thank you for sharing our vision, joining us on our journey and for supporting a vibrant new boutique music festival in the South West.
