Band applications for this year now closed
The application process for bands to play at the 2023 festival is now closed, and we are starting the long, detailed but enjoyable review and selection process.
We have received more applications this year than ever before, so there are a lot of videos to watch and discussions to be had. We will contact all applicants in early March to let them know whether they have been successful.
As soon as we have finalised the gig schedules, they will be available here on the website - we expect this to be in late March.
The countdown begins!
Countdown to the Dereham Blues Festival 2023
Reserve the dates 5 – 9 July in your diary for:
• An opening concert at the Memorial Hall – acts TBC
• More than 50 bands playing at more than a dozen venues around the town
• Family friendly venues such as the Railway Station and the busking event in the Ellenor Fenn Garden
Your local festival is a fantastic, free-entry community event. Lots and lots of great music just for the price of a drink or two.
