ALTITUDE FESTIVAL 2021
”Although our time at Altitude Festival was short, it showed us that small festivals can have the same atmosphere as these large scale events, right down to late night stragglers and backstage boozing. It showed us that quality lineups can be delivered on a smaller scale with the right people booking the acts. Most importantly, it taught us that festivals don’t need to be grandiose and excessive to deliver the same experience as it’s competitors, they just need a small dedicated team who pour their heart into the project to make it happen and truly care about the end result.”
”Thanks for having us Altitude, we will see you again next year!”
Marcus Osborne – On the House (Community music reviewing)
