Confirmed Artists 2015: 


Welcome to Music on the Marr, the world's finest small music festival. You should be able to find everything you need here to be able to work out what the festival's all about, why it's brilliant and where it's at. There's also information about who's on (which is being constantly updated), where you can stay and how much it all costs. We've taken the decision to hold prices for 2015 to help with one of our core ambitions, namely accessibility. Please do contact us if you have any further questions - we want you to come and we want you to have a brilliant time.

Not for Profit

Music on the Marr is a not for profit festival - if we make any money, it will be ploughed back into 2016's festival.

T-Shirt Competition


The team at Music on the Marr are offering you the chance to design the official T- shirt for 2015. There are certain criteria which need to be adhered to:

  1. The Music on the Marr logo must be incorporated into your design
  2. The design can be TWO colours only (black is counted as a colour, so if you use black, you can use one other colour only)
  3. The colours you choose for  your design may be changed in order to suit the colour of the T shirt itself (this will be done by the MoM team)
  4. All entries must be sent in PDF or JPEG format only.
  5. All entries must be received by 31st March 2015

Please note that the design is for the FRONT of the T-shirt only, not for the back or the sleeves.


The Music on the Marr logo will be emailed to  you on request. In the first instance please contact Tricia Meynell at
