Play at our next festival!

A programming team listens to music from all the bands and individual musicians who apply to perform at the festival, and final decisions are made using a “best fit” approach. The criteria we follow is:

  • To only feature artists who have not performed the previous year and/or a number of times over previous years
  • To prioritise artists based in Devon – and particularly Exeter
  • To prioritise artists performing original material
  • To increase the generic diversity of the music on offer
  • To allow more opportunities for young people to perform
  • To attempt to achieve a fair balance of performers across ethnic minorities; gender; age; and musical genre.

If you would like to apply to perform please fill out this form.

 

 

 

Apply to be a stall holder

Local small businesses and charities sell goods from around the world, many supporting a range of international good causes at the festival. Belmont park’s central avenue of trees and the play area became an international market, with people browsing and shopping. We encourage local traders to participate and promote their goods.

We carefully managed which traders are on site in order to create a balance between commercial traders and charitable causes.

If you would like to apply to attend the next Exeter Respect Festival as a stall holder or charity, please visit our stall holder contact page and speak to us.

Volunteer for our next festival!

Exeter Respect is powered by an army of volunteers. From the Executive Group members overseeing everything, to specialist roles like stage management, fund-raising to general help with stewarding, loading in, car parking and litter-picking, this event simply would not happen without volunteer power!

It’s already time for us to start looking for people interested in joining us as volunteers again for the 2019 Festival on 8th and 9th June 2019.

To volunteer with us please contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator, either email volunteers@exeter-respect.org or use our contact form.
