What The Media Say…

Here is what the media have said about Breaking bands Festivals…

Get Ready To Rock (2016) …

Still in its infancy, Breaking Bands Festival has yet again shown how to organise, run and sell a music festival that was sold out way before the event.  And, over the May bank holiday weekend and following days, it was receiving rave reviews from the many happy punters that took in the bands and frivolities.

The rather unassuming site and venue had being transformed into a Metal-heads summer camp with cheap, well stocked bars, a great selection of food, 2 stages and with the addition of glorious sunshine meant everyone had a great time. Read more…

Moshville Times (2016) …

While there are festivals falling off the map left and right, for reasons that could be debated in forums for an eternity, the folks at TBFM have the formula nailed. Keep the prices down, keep the fans happy. You don’t need big flashy gimmicks if you’ve got great music and great people – and this place has it all. I fully hope and expect to see the place heaving next year. You couldn’t keep me away. Read more…

Ramzine (2016) …

In the words of the organisers they “smashed it!” The festival progressed to accommodate a few more people this year, which saw groups of family and friends congregate for a weekend of merriment.

The small nature of the festival makes it really easy for festival-goers to soon become a small community. Read more…

Fat Bloke On A Motorcycle (2016) …

Well what can I say apart from WOW! I have been to a number of live gigs and bike rallies before and whilst this wasn’t a bike rally, it kinda felt like it in some respects. The camaraderie of the bands, the happy faces, intimate location making it feel like one big rock family, you couldnt get a better experience if you tried. It really did feel like it had been running for years and not just the 12 months or so and only the 2nd ever festival that the TBFM team had put on. Read more…

Get Ready To Rock (2015) …

With the glut of festivals out there at present and certainly those of sub-1000 capacity you have to wonder is there space for more? Well, whilst the few big festivals continue to charge mortgage price tickets fees for so-so line ups and dubious facilities, more and more punters are going back to those grass roots festivals where the people come first rather that the profit margin.

Sure, you still have to get it right and there have been a number that haven’t and had to cancel for various reasons. Breaking Bands Festival, though, seems to have hit the nail on the head with cost/lineup/venue and were sold out of weekend/camping tickets some four weeks before the event and it easy to see why! For £25, that will buy you 5 pints a the big festivals, we get 45+ sets over 2 stages over 2 1/2 days that includes headline bands Breed 77, Monument and Voodoo Vegas. Read more…

Get Your Rock Out (2015) …

Having arrived on the Friday night and had a chance to get the feel for this, the first Breaking Bands Festival, I knew straight away that the Busker’s Stage was a great idea. With the main stage indoors, the Busker’s times were scheduled to mean that when everyone came outside in between bands for a cigarette, food or a mooch around the stalls the music kept on coming. This kind of attention to detail was typical of the whole weekend, the organisers being festival veterans themselves, both attending and working them, have, they say, seen “the good the bad and the ugly” from both large and small events and wanted to do things a little differently.

Ramzine (2015) …

A festival in it’s first year can be risky, you certainly don’t expect them to have sold out weeks before the event. However Mucka Jay and the rest of the TBFM team did a great job in constructing a brand new small festival that not only showcased new bands, but also created a welcoming community for a fun weekend out of the normality of the standard working life.

The magic of a small festival is that you really get to know everyone over the weekend, and form friendships with like-minded people be them young or old. Bands and fans all hang out together, there is no separate backstage area. Everyone goes to watch every band – it was a very positive festival full of support for new and underground artists.
