The 2021 Festival

Firstly, on behalf of the whole committee, I hope you are all safe and well, and have remained so during these uncertain, challenging and crazy times?

We have missed you greatly, and we missed our festival, cancelled for the first time in 23 years.

The Directors and I have remained in regular touch throughout the weeks and months, and have also been in conversation with other organisations, supporters and businesses. In light of the excellent news that a vaccine is starting to be rolled out, we are hopeful that we will be able to host the 2021 Dart Music Festival on 7th, 8th and 9th May 2021. However, and of most importance for all, we will continue to be led by Government advice, restrictions and data throughout.

Keep up to date via the newsletter, our social media and this website for further updates, as more becomes certain.

If you are in need of some “feel good” fun and a reminder of what’s to come, check out the above video.

Finally, we hope you, your family and friends have had a safe and happy Christmas and here’s to a healthier, happier, better and music-filled 2021.

Stay safe,
Robin and the Team
