Returning July 2020

Create Festival is an intimate one-day festival, set in Ashford’s gorgeous Victoria Park. With 4 small music stages, hosting a line-up packed full of national and local talent, Create can truly call itself one of the biggest free music festivals in the South East.

We can't wait to be back next year! You can check out the full 2019 lineup here.

July 2020

Our sister event, Create Platform is an exciting week-long programme of live arts events, fringe activities and happenings around Ashford. Platform 2019 saw unique and exclusive experiences to the town, such as DJ sets in a church; performance poets in pubs; circus in the streets and even a spoof version of 'JAWS' outside a cinema.

You can revisit Platform's 2019 programme here.
