Event description
After the amazing success of last weekend we are back for the second month of the East End Free Festival!

About this Event

We are building a festival showcasing incredible diversity and talent and opening our doors to the world. Join us for a blether, laugh and a dance!

Operating on the ethos that music and performance art is for the many not just the few the East End Free Festival aims at challenging the status quo and providing everyone the opportunity to take part.

!LINE UP ANNOUNCEMENT AND TICKET LINK COMING SOON!

With a belief that too many people are locked out of our cultural institutions for reasons of class, gender, age, disability or background, the monthly recurring one day festival wants to shake things up and create a level playing field.

Proudly supporting the PRS Keychange pledge, encouraging festivals and music organisations to achieve a 50:50 gender balance by 2022.

The East End Free Festival festival is committed to:

.:: Showcasing a diverse and representative array of acts ::.

That means 50/50 gender representation and providing space for performers of all ages, ethnicities, orientations and abilities.

.:: Having a presence throughout the year ::.

A true resource for the community rather than a one-off pop up. Thats why we are putting it on the first Saturday of every month.

.:: Keeping the festival free at the point of use ::.

Music and art has the power to build communities, inspire and manifest new abilities and careers and it allows us to express our humanity together. The best antidote to a seemingly bleak world. Thats why it has to be open to everyone. People can pay it forward if they have the means but no payment is necessary to participate and enjoy.

.:: Pay all performers as much as we can ::.

so artists aren't out of pocket and can sustain and grow their immense talents. We will continue to try gather other sources of income so we can offer more opportunities to perform.

Get in touch with us if you would like to play or have any questions!
