Planning for the festival is it's early stages, with the following performance area's being worked on:
Global Mela Stage:
This is our world music stage. All the acts are based in Northampton or the county, although very often they are from communities that have settled in our community from all across the world. The line-up is an eclectic mix of dance, music & poetry and gives the full flavour of our beautiful mutli-cultural community.
The marquee will be decorate with a middle eastern feel and will offer tea's and food from around the world.
Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Cabaret Stage:
Now in it's third year the LGBT Cabaret is a celebration of diversity. The cabaret is for everyone, not just the LGBT community, although you will see artists from the LGBT community and those who just want to show their support for thier LGBT friends and family members. To perfom here we ask that your material celebrates diversity or you are from the LGBT community or that you just want to show your support. We will be running the 'Straight Allies' campaign again this year.
