Who will be your Discovery of this year’s Beggars Fair?
Every year the Beggars Fair features many musicians that are totally new to the festival. They have never been invited by the Beggars Fair team nor booked by any venue directly. We’ve chosen them because we think they’re just fab, but we’d like to know what you think. As and when the eligible singers & bands for 2019 are known they will be listed above.
When Beggars Fair is over you’ll be able to tell us which is your Beggars Fair Discovery of 2019 with an on-line Vote. Vote on this page for the new act that impressed you most, and tell us why. The winning act’s prize is a guaranteed slot on the Cornmarket Main Stage next year.
Voting opens at 6pm Saturday 13th July, closing at midnight 7 days later.
