Situated in the beautiful historic Welsh border town Monmouth Festival is a nine day festival offering the unique atmosphere of yesteryear festivals in the here and now. Organised by a committee of unpaid hardworking passionate volunteers for the people of Monmouth town and the surrounding areas, but attracting visitors from all over the world, it is proud to be considered one of the largest and best free volunteer organised festivals in Europe.
Music is the very essence of Monmouth Festival. We take great delight in showcasing an eclectic mix of iconic legends, local artists, and up and coming young talent covering dance, classical, country, folk, jazz, pop, rock’n roll , ska, world music and so much more. Our aim is to enable everyone to enjoy a live music performance whether it is in the open air, in a church or pub; whether it is an old favourite, new or local talent, there is something to please everyone.
Throughout its 34 years the Festival has got bigger and better and now includes the Carnival, Busking Festival and a growing Fringe. The Festival prides itself on being extremely friendly, relaxed and an opportunity for families and all generations of people to come together and enjoy themselves.
