New Music Fest 2018

Keep it free: 23/24 June 2018

This June we celebrate five years of New Music Fest at Reigate Rugby Club. We're sticking to the same formula of live music, food, bars and interesting stuff to look at, as well as free camping and lots of space to run around or sunbathe. 

We're also keeping ticket prices the same:

Adults: £20
U18s: £10
Family: £50
U5s: Free

Watch this space for news of the early-bird deals.

Booking tickets

New Music Fest is our annual summer festival, an outdoor showcase of the acts that perform at our regular New Music Nights, plus a few others. Our associate partner is Dragonfly Studios, whose owner Tom Hughes provides outstanding recording facilities right here in Reigate, plus top class live sound engineering. Tom and Dragonfly are an intrinsic part of what we do at NMN. 

The festival takes place in the beautiful grounds of Reigate Rugby Club, against the picturesque backdrop of the North Downs. Now in its fifth year, New Music Fest has become a major attraction on the local music and social scene.

Check out this video from last year's festival.

The same applies to Dragonfly Studios, our associate partner. Providing outstanding recording facilities right here in Reigate, plus top class live sound engineering, Dragonfly and its owner Tom Hughes are an intrinsic part of what we do.


Every year we donate a large share of the profits from the festival to charity. In the past we have made donations to the local YMCA and this year our charity partner is Loveworks. This local charity has been running projects to support local people in need since 2008, including food banks to alleviate food poverty. Their most recent project, Way2Go, sees the charity helping young adults to build emotional resilience through personal development coaching so they can progress towards a successful future in further education or the workplace.

We also receive valuable support from the Borough of Reigate and Banstead Arts Council and musical equipment manufacturer Stagg.


If you would like to apply to play at NMF2018, send us an email and tell us what you do.

We don't pay performers but, unlike other festivals, we don't insist that you sell hundreds of pounds worth of tickes for us either. We do support you in every way we can, including publicity leading up to the event (see the video below) and a professional recording (sound and video) of one of your songs, for you to use for your own promotions.

Plus, of course, the opportunity to play in front of 500+ people.
