The Northampton Music Festival is a free annual event that takes place in the town centre and is designed to celebrate Northampton’s rich music culture.

Now in its 11th year, the objective of the Northampton Music Festival is to raise the profile of Northampton through music; to provide a showcase for the broad range of musicians and artists that are based in the town and to provide a community-focused gathering which invites all to join in a festive celebration of our music scene.

The festival is organised by Northampton Music 365 – a not for profit, community group, in partnership with a range of local organisations.

In addition to the annual Northampton Music festival – Northampton Music 365 supports a range of yearlong initiatives to raise the profile of the Town and particularly the Town Centre through musical activity and promotion.

We seek to work in partnership with the local music and business community, to support initiatives and to provide a hub where others can promote and showcase music.  We hope to provide a central umbrella under which all the musical initiatives of the town can work together, cross promote and develop wider opportunities for the town.

If you are a musician, promoter, venue, community group or a music fan and want to get involved please drop us a line via  hello@northamptonmusicfestival.co.uk
