New Music Fest is put together by not-for-profit New Music Nights (NMN), in association with Dragonfly Studios.  The summer festival features performers who have played at the regular New Music Nights which usually take place in Reigate on the first Friday of each month.

New for this year, NMN has produced “Band of the Week” videos ahead of the festival, to help introduce the artists. These can be seen on the New Music Nights YouTube channel.

Reigate Architects are the headline sponsor for this year’s event.  Reigate College, whose students are well-represented among the performers, are sponsoring the acoustic tent.  Other support comes from the Borough of Reigate & Banstead Arts Council, Newtons Music in Merstham, musical equipment manufacturer Stagg, and new local brewer Crumbs Brewing.

Local charity Loveworks is the event’s charity partner, meaning they will receive a share of the proceeds from the event.
