Outside, you can explore the historic grounds whilst diving into Main Stage performances, alongside local food and drink vendors with a variety of options for all tastes. Performances on the Main Stage will run at opposite timings to the indoor Acoustic Courtyard Stage, so you'll never have to miss a performance!
Wander through the Sacred Gardens and discover Wellness & Healing areas, with workshops and activities to help heighten the festival experience whilst looking after the body and mind. If you're lucky, you might even find the Hidden DJ Tent where you can party to your heart's content to the very best of Exeter University's student DJs!
"We're proud to announce a new era dawning with the 2024 Poltimore Music & Arts Festival by way of the first wave of a top-notch line-up. Crammed with south west talent, the festival is bigger than previous years, taking place over 2 days, with twice as many bands and acts than ever before." says Nick Hall, Director of MIDI and Head Organiser.
"Our multiple-genre line-up is diverse by design with hip hop act the Scribes and their finesse in audience participation headlining Saturday and high-energy, retro-pop band Pattern Pusher also playing Saturday. Then we have quirky concept-prog jazz from Billie Bottle's Temple of Shibboleth, Moriaty's huge guitars and Afrofuturist psychedelic RnB from Sonnyechko. Also on the bill is a journey through an eclectic blend of roots reggae, smoky blues and jazz from Sunday headliner Datura Roots Collective. Then we move through Shoegaze from Soot Sprite, into old school folk & hip hop, experimental and dance music from Kid Hyena and special acoustic performance from electronic artist SVVIM and more!" continues Nick.
The festival was once Exeter's only student-run festival and one aspect that makes Poltimore Music & Arts Festival a little different from most is that there will be students involved in all aspects of the event. The organisers hope to continue the tradition of giving valuable work experience to support students in entering the creative industries.
The University of Exeter's 'Access to Internships' scheme has kindly funded the wages of two students to support Poltimore Festival, where they'll gain valuable event management experience. They will be deeply involved in volunteering and work experience across a range of essential festival activities from stage management, to sound engineering, social media, reviews, design and marketing.
"Previous writers, photographers and designers from Student Magazine Exepose have gone on to work for major publications, including The Guardian, The Daily Mail, The BBC, OK! and Xbox 360 Magazine, so we're really happy to continue to support young people getting started in the industry." says Nick.
