The East End Free Festival festival is committed to:
Showcasing a diverse and representative array of acts
That means 50/50 gender representation and providing space for performers of all ages, ethnicities, orientations and abilities.
Having a presence throughout the year
A true resource for the community rather than a one-off pop up. Thats why we are putting it on the first Saturday of every month.
Keeping the festival free at the point of use
Music and art has the power to build communities, inspire and manifest new abilities and careers and it allows us to express our humanity together. The best antidote to a seemingly bleak world. Thats why it has to be open to everyone. People can pay it forward if they have the means but no payment is necessary to participate and enjoy.
Pay all performers as much as possible
So artists aren’t out of pocket and can sustain and grow their immense talents. We will continue to try gather other sources of income so we can offer more opportunities to perform.
