Macmillan Fest 2019 sees the festival in its 10th year of raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support, having started out with humble beginnings in a local social club to a multi-venue metropolitan festival having raised a staggering total of £38,000!

One of the festival’s founders, and this year’s organiser, Kris Graham-Martin says: “When I started this event at the age of 16, it was hard to be taken seriously by any bands or venues at one point. For the first few years, it was difficult to find our feet and find our layout as it currently stands today. I’d say one of the biggest nightmare these days is co-ordinating announcements and organising 70+ artists. With all its challenges though, it’s still one of my most favourite events to organise every year!

The festival works to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, as well as to bring together the local talent of Nottingham with the wider UK music scene. Last year alone, £10,000 was raised, whilst this year, early bird tickets have sold out even before any band announcement!
