In festival terms, Cloudspotting is a bijou event, with a capacity of around 500 ticket buyers.  We pride ourselves on delivering a diverse music line-up across our two music stages for the weekend.  We tend to hunt down the artists we want to perform at the festival – or occasionally they fall in to our lap – but we do try and represent artists we regard as under-represented and are always looking for acts that excite us.   We don’t have a formal ‘application’ process that might be adopted by some festivals.   

The volume of acts / artists who contact us for a slot at the festival increases every year and we don’t always have time to given all applications a fair hearing. If you wish to be considered for the festival, please ensure you have your music well presented on Bandcamp, Soundcloud or Youtube and send an email to introduce yourselves to Matt at with links to your music.  We do our best to check out anyone who takes the trouble to contact us but we can’t always listen to everything and give feedback on our decision.  We will only consider original music – no cover bands please.
