Thank you for all for your support and contributing to a great day of live music! Our 5th Alresford Music Festival took the event to another level and it grew by 25% from 2013 with over 2,500 attending, and even though we had increased costs to contend with we're still proud to have raised £10k for charities and worthwhile causes in the local community. More information on these will follow in the coming months… so watch this space!
Luckily, for the second year running, this year’s festival (on Saturday 7th June) experienced a lovely sunny day that helped create a fantastic event for all ages. We have had so much great feedback from the festival goers, campers and artists it has been magnificent. We hope the festival is gaining a reputation of a high quality music event that will go from strength to strength in future years.
This year's festival saw over 2,500 people attend the festival and they were lucky enough to see an array of talent from singer songwriters, folk, indie, jazz, blues, classical, rock and pop artists as well as the outrageously fab headliners, The Earthlights Boogie Band! All the acts were spread out over 4 stages, and our camping facility at the wonderful 'Spinney' campsite was sold out with over 200 campers enjoying the secluded location just a few hundred yards from the festival site. Plus we successfully introduced a FREE shuttle bus from Winchester train station to Alresford with nearly 200 people making full use of the frequent service.
Thanks to our amazing principal sponsors; First Option Software and Salad Seminars, we are now pleased to announce that we will be offering a FREE shuttle bus service every 45 mins (approx.) between Winchester train station and the centre of Alresford, dropping off only a 2 minute walk away from the festival site.
To get the latest information about the festival, we are pleased to announce we've updated our very own iPhone and Android app which is available as a FREE DOWNLOAD from the App Store through iTunes and through Google Play for the Android version.
As well as a comprehensive list of the line-up on the day, it is, of course immediately brought up to date so any late changes to timing, stages or artists can be brought to you personally on the day.
Two charities have benefitted from the success of the 2013 Alresford Music Festival which last year raised £10,000.
The AMF team are delighted to have raised so much money for our chosen charities – the Alresford Youth Association and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
The festival has had great support from the local business community and from all the fantastic festival goers, and we are already looking forward to this year’s event and raising even more money for charity. Read more...
