A STAY AT HOME MUSIC FESTIVAL
Fri 15 / Sat 16 May
Five4Five Fest is born as fans and bands alike face a summer without festivals. Given the immense strain the Covid-19 pandemic has placed on our NHS and the personal sacrifices and efforts being made by NHS staff, bands and music industry professionals have come together, pooling collective strengths with the aim of raising money, and having some fun.
Five4Five Fest is a stay at home music festival founded by Gav Gates and Tom Pullen. The original idea was to have five bands perform from home on the 16th May, referencing the ‘5-4-5’ donation drives on social media. With an overwhelming interest, this spun out of control, and we ended up bringing more friends on board, racking up 16 bands and 4 DJs spread over two nights. A mixture of full band, solo acoustic and completely reimagined performances will be broadcast via this here website and our Facebook page from 7:30pm BST on Friday 15th May and Saturday 16th May. The show is public and completely free, though those attending are encouraged to donate £5 via a link provided at the time. Absolutely all profits will be donated to the NHS Charities Together.
Festival goers can also donate through our merch tent. With exclusive raffle prizes ranging from signed drum skins to vinyl test pressings, artist memorabilia to handwritten lyrics, and our very own line of festival merch, there is something for everyone.
Stay home. Stay safe. Support our NHS and keyworkers, who truly are keeping the world going. We hope you enjoy the festival.
Tom and Gav
