Updated for 2024

For Band & Artist applications, EPKs, website links etc., please email music [at] riversidefestival [dot] charlbury [dot] com.

Alternatively, you can send Demos or Press Kits to the postal address on the Contacts page.

We have two stages, over two days covering any and all styles of music. From indie to blues, folk to rock, world to pop. We are also taking applications for the Riverside Stage @ Cornbury Music Festival – please apply in the same way.

We’re sorry, but we can’t respond individually to all artist applications. We will contact all shortlisted applicants directly.

For all other General enquiries, please email admin [at] riversidefestival [dot] charlbury [dot] com

If you would like to get involved with Riverside we would love to hear from you. We always need people to help with the set up and breakdown. Even a couple of hours makes a big difference. We especially need help over the weekend with stewarding. So please do get in touch, and be part of a great community event. You can get in touch to find out more at volunteer [at] riversidefestival [dot] charlbury [dot] com

Looking forward to hearing from you.
