AIF

The Association Of Independent Festivals has announced it has signed up seven new members, meaning the promoters of 31 independent music events are now affiliated to the trade body. The new recruits are: End Of The Road Festival, Kendal Calling, Grassroots Eco Music Festival, Beat-Herder Festival, Deer Shed Festival, Outside:Inside Festival and Bearded Theory. They join other indie festies like Bestival, Green Man, Glade and Creamfields in the Association.

AIF GM Claire O’Neill told CMU: “We are happy to see the continued growth of the AIF membership. It’s a positive reinforcement of the Association’s value, providing a voice that will be heard for the independents. 2010 has seen a host of industry wide issues come to light that will directly affect independent festivals. The need to join together for collective action has never been more apparent”.
