Uniting and empowering independent festivals

The Association of Independent Festivals is a non-profit trade association created to represent and empower independent festivals. The key aim is to help the businesses of our individual members and overall needs of the independent festival sector.

"The AIF: the closest thing you can get to a union as an independent promoter. Indispensable." – Freddie Fellowes, Secret Garden Party
