Our story

The award-winning Stow Festival is a multi-genre festival running over several days in Walthamstow, east London. We started in 2011 and have featured hundreds of acts in over 40 venues across E17. Stow Festival has grown every year, and the last one attracted over 7,000 people across four days.

Stow Festival is a truly grassroots festival, started by a group of friends and run by volunteers with a passion for putting on amazing music. The festival runs in September every year and has previously featured acts such as Guadalupe Plata, The Left Outsides, Sisteray, Ashley Beedle, Forest Philharmonic Orchestra, Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind, Lemzi, The Bonnevilles, Dave Congreve, Steven Adams, Leif, The Drink, Brain Washington, Harry Pane, Dronningen, Steve White & The Protest Family, Darren Hayman, London Swing Cats, John Otway, The Priscillas, Moses.

Alongside the festival, the team also run a series of Stow Festival presents… gigs at the Mirth, Marvel & Maud venue, and curate stages at the Walthamstow Garden Party, a festival attracting over 30,000 people each year.
