Nottingham Riverside Festival 2019


Victoria Embankment
Friday 2 – Sunday 4 August 2019

The East Midlands’ biggest free festival returns to the banks of the Trent, celebrating summer as this hugely popular mid-summer festival returns. With the usual blend of live music, river-based activities, kids’ zone, massive funfair. There is also the Riverside highlight - the Saturday night fireworks.

Music is a big part of the festival, as ever. There are two massive live music stages. The Monument main stage fizzles with world music talent with a diverse line-up that shifts from Cuban mash-ups and gypsy funk to traditional jazz and brassy dub ska.

The Big Top stage, uncovers some of Nottingham’s best new musical talent and your next favourite band on Friday night and all-day Saturday, while on Sunday, folk takes over with a line-up that includes some of Britain’s most exciting new folk to established artists.
