Camping at New Music Fest

Camping is FREE at New Music Fest but please note that, in order to keep everyone safe, any under-18s who wish to camp must be accompanied on entry and throughout their stay at the festival site by a nominated adult, who must provide their name and mobile number on buying your ticket. This will be used for emergency contact purposes only and the record will be deleted after the festival.

To ensure maximum enjoyment for you and other campers, please take note of the following:

  • Please drive very carefully and follow the instructions of the parking attendants.
  • Please pitch tents where requested, observe the ‘teenage’ and ‘family’ camping areas and show consideration to other campers.
  • Please take note of the fire points.
  • Fires, including disposable bbqs, are not permitted anywhere in the grounds.
  • Under 18s are the sole responsibility of their nominated adult.
  • If you need help of any kind, please go to the Help Point in the middle of the arena.


Exhibit your wares at NMF

If you want to come and take a pitch at NMF, just send us an email telling us about your business and we'll take it from there.



If you have a business or organisation that you would like associated with NMF and the promotion of live original music and music in the community, we'd be interested to hear about it. There are various sponsorship opportunities available. the event itself attracts around 1,000 people and the pre-publicity runs for several months, including emails, leaflets, social media campaigns and banners, all of which will carry sponsors' logos. For more details, please drop us an email and we'll get back to you.


Hold your party at NMF

If you're planning a kids party or a significant birthday celebration this summer, why not hold it at NMF? You'll have the venue and music taken care of, easy access to food and a bar, or bring your own picnic. The atmosphere is a given.

You can take advantage of our Family tickets or if it's a large group of 10 or more, drop us an email and we'll do you a deal.


Bringing food and drink to NMF

The food and drink on sale at NMF is superb and sensibly priced, but you are welcome to bring your own. However, please note that for the future safety of rugby club users, glass bottles and cans may not be brought into the festival. Bags will be checked on the gate and any items that constitute a danger will be removed and held for you to collect when you leave.

We will be selling reusable plastic pint cups for £2 at the gate. £1 of each sale will go to charity and every time you use the cup for your beer you will get 25p off. So you only need to drink eight pints and you'll break even. Of course, we strongly recommend drinking responsibly. The other £1, by the way, just about covers the cost of the cups. 


Getting to New Music Fest

The venue, Reigate Rugby Club, is often confused with Old Reigatians Rugby Club. Please don't make that mistake or the music will seem rather quiet and you'll have a long wait for a drink. You want Reigate Rugby Club in Colley Lane. Click here for a map.

On foot: The best way to get there is on foot - a 20 minute walk from Reigate town centre and railway station. Check the map for your quickest route.

By car: Regardless of what your SatNav might tell you, avoid driving up Colley Lane from the A25. That end of the road is being resurfaced and will not be passable. Instead, approach via Somers Road/Manor Road and Coppice Lane. Parking is limited and is on a first come, first served basis. If you can walk, please do.


About New Music Fest

New Music Fest is our annual summer festival, an outdoor showcase of the acts that perform at our regular New Music Nights, plus a few others. Our associate partner is Dragonfly Studios, whose owner Tom Hughes provides outstanding recording facilities right here in Reigate, plus top class live sound engineering. Tom and Dragonfly are an intrinsic part of what we do at NMN. 

The festival takes place in the beautiful grounds of Reigate Rugby Club, against the picturesque backdrop of the North Downs. Now in its seventh year, New Music Fest has become a major attraction on the local music and social scene.

RRFC logoReigate Rugby Football Club provides an opportunity to learn and play rugby for children and adults from all parts of the community, especially those that do not normally have easy access to the game. Its grounds provide the perfect setting for New Music Fest, in a quiet part of town with the backdrop of the North Downs. RRFC want everyone to enjoy not only playing rugby but also being part of the club. Across all minis and youth age groups, their aim is to keep relatively small so that all the kids feel part of the team and are fully involved, not only in the training sessions but also playing in matches and festivals. They currently have three senior teams and a Youth Section from U12 up to U16, plus seven mini teams, from school Reception age to U11s. RRFC has been the venue for our festival since it began in 2014 and we are very grateful for their support.

We also receive valuable support from Reigate College Music and the Borough of Reigate and Banstead Arts Council.



If you would like to apply to play at NMF, send us an email and tell us what you do.

We don't pay performers but, unlike other festivals, we don't insist that you sell hundreds of pounds worth of tickes for us either. We do support you in every way we can, including publicity leading up to the event (see our video channel).

Plus, of course, the opportunity to play in front of 1,000 people.
