Create Festival & Create Platform to return for 2019

Create organisers are pleased to announce that the Create Music Festival will return to Victoria Park on Saturday 20th July, with Create Platform, a week-long series of arts events and activities in and around Ashford (15 – 21 July), showcasing street performers, live arts events and a Victorian Spectaculum.

***APPLY TO PLAY*** Whether you are a band, singer-songwriter, DJ, community group or Collective, it doesn’t matter, Create Festival wants to hear from you.  If you think you have
what it takes to entertain the estimated 12,000 music lovers who attend across the course of the day, and would like to be in with a chance to play on Saturday 20th July 2019,  then you’re invited to apply online.  The closing date for entries is midnight on Sunday 10th March 2019.  You can apply online at:

Last year, “the magnificent” DJ Jazzy Jeff was our Main Stage headliner, and we were proud to host as part of Platform spoken word events in pubs, mini lunchtime bandstand street theatre, digital meet-ups, live looping workshops, and of course a surprise set by Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club at Revelation Ashford.

Create Festival is already one of the South East’s biggest and long established free music festivals, taking place every July in Ashford’s Victoria Park.  The festival has grown significantly over the last five years and now features four music stages with a packed line-up of original acts spanning from rock and pop to folk and dance.  The festival also features a mix of food markets, bars, outdoor theatre, arts and crafts, and creative pyrotechnics.
