Dates set for StowFiesta 2015
Yes, we're pleased to announce that StowFiesta 2015 will take place on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th June at Chilton Fields, Stowmarket.

Trade enquiries, including charities - please check back the website in February when details about trading at StowFiesta will be added to the the site.

Want to play at StowFiesta? Please read this before you apply. The 'application window' to play at StowFiesta 2015 is now open until the end of January 2015. There will be two stages of music at the event - one featuring original bands and solo singer / songwriters and the other featuring covers bands. If you're interested in applying to play at the event, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. - but please read on before doing so! You don't need you to write an essay when you email, but one thing that all applicants MUST include is a link to live footage of them performing - NOT a studio recording. If this isn't included in your email, unfortunately you won't be considered. The reason for this is simply that live footage is the only way we can judge what you're like live! It doesn't need to be professional quality, just good enough to showcase what you do.

To manage your expectations, we must tell you that the number of slots available at the event is a fraction of the number of acts who normally apply to play. For the original bands stage, we are particularly keen to hear from bands who are 'different to the norm', quirky and talented but without being too niche and obscure. We must also say that whilst we are always up for featuring bands from all over the country (and indeed have featured bands from all over the UK!), StowFiesta is a fairly small community festival and so we do tend to have a slight preference for  bands with a following in the local area as they are more likely to attract a crowd.

Give us a big fat 'like' on Facebook! You can find us at www.facebook.com/stowfiesta. Come and give us a like, and we will keep you up to date with what's happening with the 2015 fest as the date draws near.

THANK YOU for making StowFiesta 2014 such a huge success!
We couldn't have asked for a better first ever StowFiesta! The weather was perfect, the crowds turned up, the music and entertainment was top quality and the feedback we've had has been overwhelmingly positive! tbp 706539
