What is Staffs Fest?
Staffs Fest is brought together by Stafford based LR Partnership, a popular annual music festival that has already made its mark on the UK music scene attracting local, regional and national musicians and audiences from all over the UK.
The festival which celebrates its fifth year in 2019 is held at Lower Drayton Farm, Penkridge near Stafford ST19 5RE and it has already proved to be especially popular with people living within the local communities in the West Midlands. Attracting local and national media interest has increased the profile of this fast-growing festival with the BBC and several regional radio stations together with local press outlets interviewing and co promoting performers, organisers and sponsors.
Having used a single large performance stage in the first three years to host all acts, this year the genres Rock, Blues, Britpop, Glam Rock and Soul. In 2018 we introduced a second marquee to house Northern Soul DJs playing only on vinyl. Staffs Fest 2019 will underline the growing success of the event with the introduction of a third marquee which will host Reggae Rockz 2019 overseen by Basil Gabbidon one of the founder members of Steel Pulse which will host a mixture of Reggae, Ska, Jazz, Funk and 2 Tone. The festival is not one dimensional however. In addition to the wide ranging live music on offer, there will be displays and workshops, a range of food and drink vendors and gift stalls , clothing and ethnic stalls providing all manner of things suited for a typical music festival audience, whilst the Beer Tent promises to never run out of beers and spirits throughout the weekend.
As befitting a family orientated music festival, provision is made for younger members in the audience with a Kidz Corner, inflatable’s, kids disco plus free access to Lower Drayton Fun Farm, which includes everything from animal feeding to adventure playground. As with previous years, LR Partnership are allowing all children under 16 free admission throughout the festival weekend.
Promoting young Musicians in the Midlands
A special annual competition organised to promote and support young local music talent within the Midlands area. Star in Staffs competition for under 18s
The finalists will win the chance to play live at the festival and the winner will be picked by a panel of judges with a prize of 2 days recording in a music studio with the production of a CD from sponsor Phoenix Music Studio Gaol Road in Stafford.
LR Partnership and Staffs Fest have been very active in supporting worthy causes within the local Midlands community over the last few years.
For the first 3 years, The Festival championed the Millie Bea’s Walking Wish Charity which has currently raised an amazing £75,000 for a much-needed operation to help Millie to walk. She is doing really well and is our guest at the festival each year . In 2018 we supported AED Donate (defibrillators)
In 2019, Staffs Fest will be looking to champion a new charity challenge.
Staffs Fest are now looking for Sponsors for their 2019 Festival. All sponsors who sign up to work with LR Partnership and the Festival team will be at the forefront of current and future marketing for the event which can include everything from targeted social media promotions to flyers and roadside banners in prime spots across the county. There is also an interesting opportunity for company brands to be banner advertised on both the main stage and the acoustic stage – the two key locations for Staffs Fest 2019. Additionally, sponsors can be publicised on all video and photographic event media coverage, as well as individual displays within either marquee, full or half page spreads in the official festival programme and of course on the official Staffs Fest website and social media in the weeks leading up the event. With social media interest in the weeks leading up to last year’s festival averaging 10,000 hits per week the opportunity to benefit from such publicity is there for all
