FreeFest is an event spawned by the sudden and unexpected ceasing of the local music festival Shrewsbury Fields Forever.
Organisers were keen to put on an event that gave those people, left in the lurch by the demise of SFF and no ticket refunds, a chance to still enjoy some music on the same weekend. The event was held at the Buttermarket with DJs and dance music on both Friday and Saturday nights and live music being held during the day and evening on Saturday.
We provided sound engineering duties and ancilliary equipment for the live sound side of things. We’d like to say a big thanks to the organisers and, especially, those bands who gave their time and efforts for free, in aid of a good will event. We had a blast and hope you guys did too!
