Frome Independent Market – Festival Takeover 2024

Calling all performing artists – Frome Festival is teaming up with The Frome Independent, and we need your help to bring this year’s Festival market to life!

This summer, The Frome Independent Market will coincide with the annual Frome Festival on Sunday 7th July 2024. We both have a proud tradition of championing local artistic talent, and so we’re inviting local performers to apply to perform during one of Frome’s busiest events.

We’re looking for performers who can perform up to 50 min slots at the Market Place StageActivity Zone (next to the Library) and wandering, flash-mob style performances to bring this year’s Festival market to life. Whether you’re a musician, thespian, dancer, magician, juggler, entertainer – anyone and everyone is welcome to apply! All performances will take place on busking stages with 0% commission, so performers will be able to keep all contributions provided by the 5,000 visitors who attend the market.

Please use the below form to register your interest by Wednesday 3rd April @ 5pm. After this deadline, the Festival team will work with the Independent Market planners to coordinate a programme and will reach out to artists to inform them of performance times.

Please note – we are hoping to programme as many performers as we can,
but if we receive high demand for performance slots we may not be able to offer opportunities for all performers.
