Rotherham’s Number 1 Festival : MUSIC FOR THE PEOPLE BY THE PEOPLE

Where Slamfest Began.

Slamfest first hit Rotherham Town Centre in 2012,  promoted by Rotherham Art Events as a FREE music Festival celebrating the musicianship and creativity of Rotherham.  

It’s strength lies in the fantastic music community of Rotherham, with Bands and soloists from across the Borough coming together for one big event.

Each year the Festival has grown, and for the past two years has been a two day event, allowing Slamfest to feature more home grown talent.  In 2014 over 80 Bands and soloists played involving over 350 musicians


South Yorkshire’s biggest Free Live Music Festival

Slamfest is financed entirely by Commercial Sponsorship - Advertising and Donations.  

RMBC have been really generous by providing basic infrastructure, however RAE still have to meet the costs of performance infrastructure and organisation.    

You can help.  We need serious volunteers and marketeers /  We need donations.   But most of all we need the support of Rotherham business.  

In 2014 Chantry Brewery invested heavily in Slamfest and were rewarded by bumper sales and a fantastic increase overall sales as Live Music became a central part of their marketing.
