How we choose performers

The Organising Committee is managed by Johnnie Littler, the Festival Director and founder of the very successful First Thursday Music Club in Thame.

It is the Organising Committee as a group who decide who the potential performers should be for the festival and ultimately who gets to play at each of venues.

Performers will be eliminated from this process if they don't meet the selection criteria which includes but is not limited to: producing music that is not one of the genres of the festival; have no website / YouTube videos showing live performances.  We focus on original music and actively support local artists, preference will be given to artists who have not performed at the festival in the previous year.
