We’d like to send out a HUGE AMF THANK YOU to everyone who was involved with #AMF17. From all of you who bought tickets and came along to join in with an amazing day, to those who helped spread the word on social media and word of mouth.

To the journalist and photographers (official and unofficial), sponsors, volunteers, friends and supporters, traders and hired hands and the incredible (but tiny) AMF team who give so much of their time, energy, brains and muscle freely, to make it all happen and enable us to provide the best standards of staging, sound and lighting to attract such high calibre artists.  It’s a monumental team effort.

We had the best year ever. The advance tickets sales were way ahead of previous years and the weather was on our side. We are still working on final numbers but are confident we have welcomed in excess of 4,000 people, which is our biggest attendance record yet!

The weather was perfect for our eighth festival. We have built up a reputation for being family friendly and safe as well as providing a perfect platform for some of the best and most varied music about. Bands really enjoy the relaxed vibe and welcome they get and we are very lucky that so many amazing musicians want to play AMF.

It never fails to fill us with pride and joy to look around at the sea of happy smiling faces and people dancing or relaxing and loving the experience. 

We are still crunching the numbers but with such a busy festival we hope to have raised more than ever for our chosen charities: 

• Winnal Rock School

• Key Changes

• Harmony of Hope

It’s a pleasure to bring such a fantastic festival to Alresford. We are very lucky to live in a great part of the world – but to be able to bring some of the rest of the world to us, in the form of amazing music and an incredible day is an enormous pleasure. The fact we also raise money for good causes is one of the reasons why all the volunteers and organising team put in so much effort and time year after year and why our generous sponsors and supporters continue to enable the festival to happen at all.

We’d like to extend a particular thank you to the New Alresford Town Council for their continued support and both the local football and rugby clubs along with Perins School for being so accommodating.
