Born in Wiltshire in 2011 out of a desire to provide meaningful and ethical support to a Big Lottery Fund supported rural community enterprise and community pub which was part of the BBC Village SOS series; OneFest was established to help the local community sustain and develop their community hub. The festival was a resounding success and provided a significant platform for local talent who supported headline acts Damien Rice, Laura Marling, The Magic Numbers and Dry the River, with a project endorsement from Seasick Steve. Returning in Wiltshire in 2012, OneFest continued to support the local economy where possible, providing voluntary and work experience placements in addition to breaking new, local talent in conjunction with BBC Introducing. Damon Albarn headlined the festival bringing his critically acclaimed Dr Dee to the site, ahead of his Hyde Park performance with Blur. Five years on and OneFest has evolved into a UK based, non-profit, music industry development company set up to support the emergence of new talent. Working collaboratively with partners, such as AIF (Association of Independent Festivals), The Roundhouse, The Hub, The 100 Club, PRS for Music, PRS Foundation and Young Guns Network, and with the support of Arts Council England, OneFest provides a platform for new and emerging talent which will inspire, support and develop a new generation of artists, performers and music industry professionals through the creation of genuine opportunities and practical experience in the music and creative industries – ultimately contributing to the regeneration of the UK music community.
