VAULT offers six frenetic weeks of live entertainment, Wednesday to Sunday, from January 28th until 8th March next year. This is the third VAULT: last year the festival saw more than sixty shows and events take place over thirty live days of activity, with over 20,000 tickets sold and hundreds of artists, musicians and performers taking part. VAULT Festival was founded in the spirit of equality and honesty in an attempt to support young and dynamic creative groups get a foothold in an often merciless industry – the entire event is geared towards lateral strength and collaboration, rather than hierarchy and pay-to-perform exploitation. Also, it’s enormous fun. We’re aiming to beat the success of 2014′s festival and further increase what we offer visiting companies in terms of support and opportunities. If you’ve got an idea for a show, event or something else which you think would fit into the world of VAULT, see our visiting companies section for more info. Otherwise, stay tuned for headline announcements, and sign up to our mailing list below to be first in line for booking.

Visiting companies: If you’ve read through everything here, and have an idea you want to talk to us about, please get in touch. It’s really important that you know which venue you’re interested inthe length of run you’d prefer (if longer than a week, we’d need to know why), and can tell us about your show/event/party/installation concisely and passionately.

It’s not necessary that you’ve had work put on before but we’d love to hear about the experience you and your creative team have, in either case. Everything gets a hearing. And we love pictures and video: just don’t overload us, we’ve a lot to get through! Sound reasonable? Drop us a line.
