The 7th Maidstone Fringe Festival follows on from its predecessors in celebrating the diversity of new and original music in Kent and the South East. During five days over the Mayday Bank Holiday weekend, it will fill the county town's numerous pubs, clubs and music venues with live music across many different genres. Incorporated within the festival are a number of all day events and dance all-nighters, as well as family-friendly entertainment in cafes and coffee shops in the town centre, with much of the music being free to attend.

This year's festival sees a wide mixture of music in Maidstone, from rock, indie and pop-punk through to acoustic and blues acts, ska and reggae, contemporary folk, funk, soul, dance and hip-hop.

Main acts already confirmed are Glenn Tilbrook - the lead singer from Squeeze; New York artist and BBC Radio 2 presenter Nell Bryden, and Michele Stodart from The Magic Numbers with her new band. 'Chap-Hop' pioneer Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer will also be appearing, as will punk legend TV Smith.

A host of Fringe Festival favourites and South East based artists are also appearing including: The Scorchers, One Day Elliott, Molly's Bar, Ben Mills, Funke & The 2 Tone Baby and many more.

Participating venues include The Style & Winch, Earls, 4 Degrees, The Druids Arms, The Flowerpot, The Source Bar, The Stag, Drakes, The White Horse, The Cellars, The Music Room - Pizza Express, Bar 6, The Royal Albion, Frederic, The Duke of Marlborough and The Social Chill Bar
