Friends of AIF Benefits



Our Friends of AIF scheme directly connects trusted suppliers and companies to AIF members- over 50 of the most successful and creative independent festivals in the UK including Bestival, Boomtown Fair, Shambala and Bloodstock.

This scheme offers companies the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and do business directly with our members in various ways, from B2B networking events to direct member mail-outs and access to online resources.

“We find the opportunity to communicate with members and build relationships through attending AIF organised events helps us to get to know the organisers and their festivals.  This helps our understanding which enables us to provide a much better service and ultimately more competitive premiums, saving AIF members money”.  –Music Insurance Brokers

“Mojo Barriers are proud to be a Friend of AIF – it is a great organisation helping suppliers keep abreast of industry news and developments, meet key contacts of new emerging festivals as well as a useful platform to showcase our services to key decision makers.” – Mojo Barriers
