The inaugural 2013 festival was a huge undertaking, nevertheless, we were delighted by the response and support given by some of the biggest companies in music, music education and from non music industry sectors. The response of the public was also amazing with thousands turning up for the exhibitors exhibition. Above you can see the logos of the companies that partnered with us to deliver the first ever festival which was viewed as an amazing new event in the music calender and offers us the ability to build upon its success.
