Special / Notes
Organiser statement: "Following recent Government announcements, amid the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Covid 19 pandemic and given current advice and restrictions, with great sadness and regret, we must announce that this year’s Dart Music Festival has been cancelled. We cannot make plans with any certainty, and we are unable to guarantee the safety of our artists, performers, supporters, volunteers, attendees and the wider community, this being our number one priority. This has meant that we have had to cancel the festival for the second consecutive year.
"The next Dart Music Festival will now take place on 6th, 7th and 8th May 2022."

The Dart Music Festival was started 21 years ago by Rob and Di Lyon (now Mayor of Dartmouth). It is an annual music event over three days, which was initially to help improve the length of the tourist season for the small riverside town of Dartmouth and its tourism based businesses.

We have over 100 acts performing in over 20 closely sited town venues. These include churches, restaurants and hotels. Our main area (centred around wonderful gardens and bandstand) is next to the river’s edge, surrounded with cafes and bars. There are open air street-based performances making for a constant buzz of enjoyment. Many of the musicians, both amateur and professional, are from the West Country but we strive to be inclusive and attract national and international acts.

We are a not-for-profit organisation and have formed a ‘Dart Music Foundation’ where young hopefuls can apply for grants to help with music lessons, equipment and other associated costs relating to their musical progression.
