Awesomeness!!! I had such an awesome time! I felt very welcomed, met some of the nicest people and saw some REAL talent! All the bands and acts rocked! The staff were the best at making everything run smoothly and making the whole experience one to remember! If you want to see some great bands that work hard to make some awesome music then this is the place to be – it’s all about the music! – Ben Barker

I go to a LOT of festivals as it’s a big part of my business – big ones, small ones, new ones and old ones, and to have a festival with this much energy, hype and downright awesomeness is an absolute pleasure. To do all of this in the first ever year? That’s unheard of! I am very much looking forward to next year and hope they can do it all again – Dave Wright

Very impressed! The venue was great, the sound and stage was superb. Brilliant and friendly atmosphere. Will be around next year for sure. – Ste Fowkes

A 5 star rating! The first Breaking Bands Festival and a first festival experience for my daughter and what a way to start! We both had a blast of a weekend, putting faces to names, meeting some absolutely bonkers people – just like us! All bands and acoustics sounded brilliant – bring on Breaking Bands 2016! – Jacqui D’Arcy

Absolutely super!! We had a fantastic time and can’t wait for next year!! – Ze Hall

I don’t class myself as a festival expert, but I’ve been to a good number, especially the smaller ones that I much prefer. The build up to this was like a planned military exercise – superb social media & press communications, fan involvement, Q&A’s, ideas given and taken on, just about everything you could think of and more was ticked off in a timely fashion building to fever pitch! Things like negotiating drink prices and food menus were something I’d not seen before and showed real consideration for those attending. – Keith Lamley

Absolutely top weekend. Amazing to see the amount of hard work that’s gone into this festival all pay off. Roll on next year!!!!! – Rhianna Jacobs

Brilliant weekend! Awesome bands and awesome people! – Louis Hale

Amazing festival! Great bands, great people, great organisation! – Lucy Kannenburg

We had a fantastic time! Great venue, great bands. See you next year! – Rosemarie Kibble

I had a fantastic weekend and will definitely be coming again. A really friend crowd with some great bands. The mix of bands as well as the outside acoustic stage was brilliant. Staff went above and beyond and were very friendly x – Christina Cook

It was AMAZING! The whole team ran the event excellently and everyone, bands and audience alike, had a great time. Can’t wait to do it all next year. – Steve Jacobs

Most excellent festival, fantastic atmosphere on and off stage. Loved it!! Bring on 2016! – Mick Morrell

It’s an awesome festival brought to you by the station of the nation, showcasing the finest selection of up and coming unsigned bands! – Joe Hill

Everything I LOVE about festivals with NONE of the stuff I don’t like! GREAT music, great people, great atmosphere with no rip-off prices, no massive queues, no minging toilets (especially no massive queues FOR minging toilets!), no arsey, jobsworth security, no thuggish elements…. it was all just fab, kudos to all involved! I don’t just feel like I WENT to a festival, I feel like I’ve BEEN A PART OF a most amazing weekend!! Definitely want to come back again! – Von Atterbury

Amazing atmosphere, great bands, great crowd! Looking forward to next year! – Adam Hemmings

Just brilliant! Great atmosphere, great bands, great people and brilliantly organised. If you love your music or just fancy a great laugh then you HAVE to get tickets for this festival. It really and truly is cheap at double the price! – Sophie Casson

When people are coming up to you on Day 2 asking how they can get tickets to NEXT year’s festival then you know you’re doing something right! – Mark Roberts

This festival was aammmaaazzziinnggggg! Had a great weekend and met some great people! I loved how the bands camped next to us “normal people” – it made it much more enjoyable as we got to know them outside of the stage! Overall, a great weekend! Thanks guys! – Jess Owen

Great, friendly laid back atmosphere that felt more like a camping trip with a big group of mates with some killer bands in there! – Gareth Harding

Like being welcomed home by old friends & new! Great music, great bar prices, great fest! – Phil Bruce

A full-on festival that ran like clockwork – cannot wait to go back next year and do it all over again! Several bands were a known value, but first time seen, then there were others I had no idea what to expect, but being there for the long haul, and for a fantastic price to cover the whole weekend, I girded my loins, and stuck it out till the end! Not a single bad note, over indulged on the bands AND the merch! In a word – MARVELLOUS! – Mark Ross

Great music, great people, great times!! An awesome festival!! – Beth CH

Kyrbgrinder would like to extend a massive thanks to all who came down to the very first Breaking Bands Festival! We had a great time playing to you guys and wished we could’ve played longer, half-n-hour just flew by. Big shout-out to the crew for putting on a very well run event, just about everything went as smoothly as possible and the atmosphere was so laid back. Personal thanks to the guys who ran the stage; quick changeovers are fraught at the best of times but everything was effortless. To the bands who shared the stage over the weekend, take care dudes & see you all soon. – Dave Kyrbgrinder

Awesome! Very well promoted, organised and really friendly. Brilliant line up of amazing bands from all genres of rock. My 3 1/2 year old daughter’s first festival and she not only got a VIK (Very Important Kid) pass but was made very welcome. The camping was faultless and credit has to go to the organisers. Bring on next year! – Stig Chell

The passion and effort that goes into this festival is astounding. It really is how festivals should be run. I’m so glad it went so well and will be carrying on for at least next year too! Jay is a seriously decent festival organiser and it’s great to see that he loves the music so much! – Harry Lehane

What a great setting! Good club, good field, really cheap tickets and bar/food prices. The bands were all well chosen and outstanding in their ability to play well. Toilets were kept really clean and there were shower facilities. Overall what a superb first festival, better get tickets for next year because I think it’s gonna sell out -fast! – Julie Redfern

An absolutely brilliant festival, the best I have ever been too! Excellent venue, very well organised, an entire weekend of excellent bands, great atmosphere and everyone there made it a totally enjoyable experience – even better was that you didn’t need to spend a fortune to be there! Other festivals really do need to take note as this is how a festival should be run. A massive thanks to everyone involved in making it such a success – I hope there are many more of these! Breaking Bands – I’ve discovered my new favourite festival! – Skylla Ceto

Great choice of bands, very good prices on the food and drink, quick changeovers, helpful staff – all in all a fantastic weekend to remember! Makes watching music fun again – much respect to all. – Paul Wilkes

Festival was just top notch, excellently organised and very professional! Great for mates or family with loads of different acts and music and brilliant food / drink prices! Thanks for a blinding weekend – can’t wait for next year!!! – Laura Halls

Absolutely fantastic festival! Great sound, brilliant promotion and top top TOP people! Much love to everyone for their hard work. Festivals like this make me proud to be part of the UK Underground Scene – Dan Sugden

A privilege to be a part of! Cool people, fine bands at a price that can’t be beaten! If the subsequent years can match or top 2015 this could be the fastest growing festival in the UK – be there in 2016! – Joey Class

The organising team were totally faultless – very smooth running. Everyone very friendly and helpful, plus it had the party feel about it! Couldn’t fault it, definitely one for next year! – Paul Cairns
