Dalliance at Depot 2024

The clocks have changed, spring has sprung and the wait is finally over! The best Saturday night out in Lewes is back for the summer!

Dalliance is Depot’s weekly live music & street food extravaganza, which has been bringing those summer festival vibes to Lewes since 2021!

Each Saturday (and bank holiday Sunday) from May to September, we host live music and delicious street food vendors on our beautiful open terrace, guaranteed to give you that great festival experience. Mix that with a great selection of local beers and ciders, and you’ve got an unforgettable night out planned.

Throughout the summer we’ll have a mix of musicians, bands and DJs visiting us, along with a selection of Dalliance food vendor favourites – and some new names for you to try out! Check out our listings below for the coming weeks lineup.

Please note: as we welcome Dalliance back for another summer season, we need to make you aware of some important changes:

What could be better to kick off our first Dalliance of the year than the toe-tapping, hot & swinging tunes of Django Chutney, a manouche-jazz-trio from Brighton. inspired by the likes of Django Reinhardt, as well as more contemporary bands such as Slayer. With their mix of classic swing, blues and vintage R n’ B, Django Chutney are guaranteed to get you moving with their memorable guitars, three-part vocal harmonies and a (perhaps) unnecessary amount of slap bass solos!
