Royston MusicFest is part of Royston Arts Festival which is run by Creative Royston a not-for-profit organisation run entirely by unpaid volunteers. If you want to know more about Creative Royston or Royston Arts Festival just click HERE.

MusicFest is usually scheduled to take place on the final Sunday afternoon of the arts festival which has always been the last weekend in September, so in 2023 it will actually be on Sunday 1st October.

Information for performers: Creative Royston covers ‘expenses’ for each performer which have increased over the years and now stands at £35 per performer, irrespective of the number in a band or group, in return for performing 2 sets of around 40-45 minutes. Solo performers will be paid £40, a little extra to offset possibly increased transport costs and we pay another £60 to the artists providing the PA system. The venues manage their own events on the day of the performance and are responsible for ensuring that Public Liability and other necessary insurances are in place along with appropriate health and safety measures including sufficient staff and security arrangements.
