Programmes and wristbands – oh my!

Want to know exactly what’s going on across Festival weekend? Then wonder no more as programmes will be on sale from Monday 16th April in various formats!

You can purchase a hard copy from one of the following outlets for £5.

In Dartmouth, they are available from TIC, Pillars, Café Alf Resco, Dart Marina Hotel, Compass Book Shop, Royal Castle Hotel, Crab & Bucket, Community Bookshop, The Windjammer, Anchorstone Café, BP Garage, No 11, Compass Office Shop, The Floating Bridge and The Flavel.

In Kingswear, they are available from Kingswear Post Office and Kingswear Stores.

In Stoke Fleming, they are available from the Green Dragon and the Post Office.

In Strete, they are available from the Post Office.

For those of you who that want an online version – like an app but not an app – then head over to the website and check out ‘My DMF’. You can ‘favourite and print out’ your very own schedule for the weekend. It’s a fully customisable way to download the acts and bands you want to see (and leave out those you don’t!). Simply head to, create an account, tick the people you want to see and voila – your own personal programme for just £5! Another option is the PDF version of the whole programme – also available for you to download for £5.

If you’re not local and want one sent to you, please contact the Compass Office Shop on 01803 833281. Costs are £5 for the programme and £1 postage. Credit and debit cards accepted.

We know it’s been explained many times before, but the reason why we don’t publish all the performance details online is simply because the programme sales are absolutely vital to the funding of – and continuation of – the Festival.

The costs to put on a ‘Free For All’ event like this are now over £70,000, so we really DO appreciate you buying a programme.

Back by popular demand this year are the weekend wristbands for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the Dart Music Festival. Prices remain the same as 2017.

At just £20 for three days filled to bursting with FREE performances all over town, we think that’s quite a bargain.

Day wristbands are also available, with Friday wristbands priced at £5, Saturday wristbands are £8 and Sunday wristbands are £8.

We reckon that’s not a lot to pay for three full days stuffed with music wherever you go and will continue to support the future of the Festival.

Buy them from the Merchandise Tent in Royal Avenue Gardens – then go off and enjoy yourselves!

Thank you for supporting Dart Music Festival – have a great weekend!
