The Dart Music Festival was started over 20 years ago – an annual music event over three days!

There are over 100 acts performing in over 20 closely sited town venues. These include churches, restaurants and hotels. Our main area (centred around wonderful gardens and bandstand) is next to the river’s edge, surrounded with cafes and bars. There are open air street-based performances making for a constant buzz of enjoyment. Many of the musicians, both amateur and professional, are from the West Country but we strive to be inclusive and attract national and international acts.

Public Transport Directions

The Stagecoach bus X64 serves Dartmouth from Totnes. Stagecoach Gold (every 30 minutes) to Totnes from both Torquay and Paignton.

Road Directions

By car you can either take the main road towards Brixham (A3022), coming off at the Dartmouth Road junction and then take one of the car ferries across the river (both Higher and Lower ferries are signposted from the Dartmouth Road). Or you can drive towards Totnes and then follow signs towards Dartmouth - this route avoids the ferry crossing.
