Dart Music Festival 2016

In 2017, May 12, 13, & 14
We Celebrate 20 Years

WOW …. what a weekend.

We celebrated our 19th year with vibrancy, fun and friendship. We maintained our Free and Inclusive to all policy, and this really was a hugely enjoyable weekend of exploration and musical discovery thanks to the dedicated team of volunteers. The sun was with us all weekend and the music was wall to wall. We sincerely hope you had the best time yet with us and got home safe and sound.

But watch out for next year – it’s the 20th, and we want it to be outstanding.
