3 day Arts & Music Festival

Celebrating 10 years of Festival2Funky

Now in its 11th year, Festival2Funky 2024 will be a 3-day celebration of black music and arts, running from 24-26 May.

And we are looking to commission 2 artists, who identify as LGBTQIA+, to develop a new 5-8 minute vocal performance piece using black styles. This will be showcased at Festival2Funky.

The fee for each performance and marketing opportunity is £500 per artist.

To be eligible, artists must be aged 18+, be a vocal artist (rap or singing), reside in the East Midlands, and be free to perform on Saturday 25 May.

Artists will also be asked to proactively publicise this event in a series of social media posts, so a strong online presence is preferable.


We are also looking for female artists and female programmers to be part of this years Festival2Funky.

To be eligible, artists must be aged 18+, reside in the East Midlands, work across black music genres and free for the festival dates (24-26 May).
