AIF launch networking event for festival organisers

Listen to this article

The Association of Independent Festivals is establishing a monthly night of networking and live music dubbed The Festival Social. The networking event will take place on the first Tuesday of each month, starting next week (March 6). 
The first event will be held at The Social (5 Little Portland Street , London W1W 7JD) off Great Titchfield Street.

The event will open conversation between like-minded independent entrepreneurs and therefore will not be exclusive to AIF promoters or members, but an invitation to the festival sector to get together and unwind: agents, promoters, artist managers, production companies and all the many businesses that benefit or help create a modern-day music festival.

Performing will be singer songwriter Ryan Keen fresh from performing on tour with Ed Sheeran, indie talent Anothers Blood led by Richard Frenneaux of Red Light Company fame and Radio 1 DJ Rob da Bank. It will kick-off at 7pm, with the first band performing at 8pm.

Produced by Lee Denny promoter of LeeFest, Festival Social is looking to become a monthly feature of the festival industry calendar – although is likely to be in hiatus over the Summer festival season as those involved are expected to be knee high in mud and music.

Festival Social will be free for the first hour and £2 after 8pm.
