Dover Music Festival

Rotarians have taken a leading role in the formation and establishment of the Dover Music Festival, held this year in Dover Cruise Terminal. This is a not-for-profit venture, designed to put Dover on the musical map.

We are so lucky to have, in Dover and the surrounding area, open spaces and historic spaces which lend themselves to creative uses. Dover Music Festival has only been going a few years, but is already an eagerly-awaited fixture in the town’s social calendar.

FIRST FULL ANNOUNCEMENT OF 2017 LINE-UP
 
As many of you will already be aware, another DOVER MUSIC FESTIVAL is nearly upon us. It seems like only yesterday that we were planning our first festival and here we are this year with our 4th!
 
Once again it will be held in the uniquely superb setting of Dover's Cruise Terminal 1 and for the second year running the DOVER FESTIVAL will bring together the two biggest and most popular annual events held in our town to produce a fantastic weekend of entertainment with DOVER MUSIC FESTIVAL taking place on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th August joined by DOVER REGATTA on the Sunday.
 
As always we have put together an exciting programme of music featuring some of the cream of local talent as well as some exciting household names making their first appearance in our town.
 
Entry to the festival is once again free to all, although we are asking for a donation to help Kelly Turner complete her life-saving treatment in the USA. Doors will be open from 2.00 pm with music provided by DJ Lee Edgington. Live music will start at 3.30 pm on both days. Here is the full line up.

There will be something for everyone including a wide range of food vendors, a fully stocked bar and a great atmosphere. As usual, prices will be very keen.
 
This year (assuming that Dover is not gridlocked again!) there will be limited free car parking at locations adjacent to the Western Docks and a free shuttle bus running every 30 mins. from the Market Square.
 
As always, our eternal thanks to our sponsors who make the whole thing possible. This year in addition to receiving continued support from Dover Big Local and the Port of Dover community fund we are delighted to welcome as a new major sponsor VBSW, the company carrying out the regeneration of Dover's western docks.
