We hope you have found the above list useful and interesting . If you are a Music Festival organiser and wish  your event to be added please forward details to  simply writing MUSIC FESTIVAL and the NAME in the subject box, providing full contact details and a link to your own website within the email. We would expect your event to be a music-based festival with an audience of 5,000+ or for you to be a member of either the AIF or the AFO.

BANKIER SLOAN Chartered Surveyors is based in North Oxfordshire and we have written extensively on Business Rates, and Business Rates Reliefs for many years . We have advised many festival organisers on the issue of business rates as well as other related property matters such as Rent Reviews, Lease renewals and Planning. You are always welcome to contact either myself or my assistant Lucy Castle to discuss such matters. We will be happy to provide references from within the music festival industry.

WARNING:   We take no responsibility for any  individual festival.  The web-sites listed we hope go directly to each festival’s own web-site rather than any ticket agency,  thus allowing individuals to view details of each event and then find links for purchasing tickets should they wish.
