Many Morris dance teams from around the UK (and from as far as Alaska) come to the Rochester Sweeps festival and join the parade along the High Street. In addition many musical events take place in different pubs and outdoor stages over the weekend. This video was shot in Man of Kent alehouse of the Truckstop Honeymoon gig in 2011 and this video of Truckstop Honeymoon was shot at the Gordon House Hotel beer festival.

This is a video of French band Sur Les Docks who are performing at the Sweeps festival again this year. This video of McManigan Academy of Irish Dancers performing Lord of the Dance was shot at the Gordon House Hotel in 2012.
