This town is so lucky to have a wealth of talent and what better place to celebrate the day than at The King Billy, The heart of the town’s Rock & Metal scene!

f4Blackbush Promotions owner Andy took over the sound engineering duties and delivered a day full of quality sound adaptations and a professional audio deliverance. Marshall Amplification supplied the backline. So a big thanks from us!

The changeovers were smooth and efficient by all concerned. The artists took advantage of kicking back in the lounge room drinking copious amounts of bottled water we’d supplied and a special drinks offer on beer!

 Northampton Music Festival is a free annual event designed to celebrate Northampton’s rich music culture.  Now in its 8th year, the central ethos is to raise the profile of Northampton through music, to provide a showcase for the broad range of musicians and artists that are based in the town and to provide a community-focused gathering which invites all to join in a festive celebration of our music scene. 

The festival is organised by Northampton Music 365 – a not for profit community group, in partnership with a range of local organisations.

In addition to the annual festival – Northampton Music 365 is developing a range of yearlong initiatives to raise the profile of the Town and the Town Centre through musical activity and promotion.

Our aim is to work in partnership with the local music community, to support initiatives and to provide a hub where others can promote and showcase music.  We hope to provide a central umbrella where all the musical initiatives of the town can work together, cross promote and develop wider opportunities for the town.

If you are a musician, promoter, venue, community group or just a music fan and want to get involved please drop us a line via the Get Involved page.
