Monmouth Festival
Monmouthshire NP25 3DY
The Monmouth Festival in east Wales is one of the largest volunteer-run free music festivals in Europe. It runs for nine days and covers all aspects of music from classical ballet to busking and everything in between.
Throughout its life the Festival has got bigger and better and now includes the Monmouth Carnival, Busking Festival and a growing Fringe.
This extremely successful event has been run every year since 1982 and features a mix of iconic legends, local artists and up and coming young talent performing all genres of music - dance, classical, country, folk, jazz, pop, rock’n roll, ska and world music.
Events are held across a number of venues in the ancient town of Monmouth. The Main Festival stage is set up in Blestium (Cattle Market) Car Park Monmouth NP25 3EQ. Other venues include churches, museums, the Savoy Theatre, pubs and even the Kymin Round House.
The aim of the Festival is to enable everyone to enjoy a live music performance whether it is in the open air or a small intimate venue. The Festival organisers run an extremely informative and useful website.
