ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! IT'S BASICALLY GLASTONBURY ON A MUCH SMALLER SCALE!!! PLENTY OF BANDS TO GO SEE BEFORE THEY BECOME FAMOUS, IF THEY DO!!!
A well organized day that was thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family. The security was great as well and felt safe that our little ones could not leave the venue without being stopped.
The M festival is a legend in the making and in years to come, people will ask if you were there at the beginning... Make sure you can say yes.
Great bands, a wonderful, friendly atmosphere. The best day and night out Saint Albans has to offer. The positive energy from the whole event is catching. Would recommend to anyone and everyone. All topped off with fireworks!
I love that a stage is given over to new young and emerging talents. It was a pleasure to see how the audience reacted and encouraged them all. Well done, I feel so proud of them all.
St Albans' top school music festival, showcasing the school's emerging musical talent, surpassed itself once again in 2017. The quality of the local, professional bands, who played, gives inspiration to the young musicians and helps to place music at the heart of the culture of the local community. An ever increasing variety of activities ensured a great day for all the family and tickets were good value for money. The festival's expansion and success is a testament to the hard work put in by the talented team of volunteers.
A fantastic, inclusive, family event where there is something for everyone to enjoy. Fantastic organisation, bands, food and drink and such a happy atmosphere!
A well-organised family event with a real festival atmosphere and a safe environment for pre-teens to experience their first festival. Highly recommend M-Festival.
What a brilliant family day with great bands, variety of food & drink and loads of activities for the children. We'll certainly be returning next year!
Bands ROCKED! Food ROCKED! People ROCKED! Thank you, once again, for a fabulous festival and more wonderful memories.
M Festival has the music and atmosphere of any outdoor music event in London - no different to Hyde Park!!
I love that the M Festival puts St. Albans on the map!
Fantastic, well organised, safe, family friendly event with a really calm, happy, vibe.

Back in 2010 a small group of parents and staff from The Marlborough Science Academy came together to build on the idea of hosting a music festival as a PTA fundraising event. With a small stage and audience and just a handful of performers, the festival just about broke even.
9 years later and the very same team with the help of further volunteers have established M Festival as a fantastic annual event that has now raised in excess of £86,000 for the school. Things have changed slightly since 2010 and with 2 large outdoor stages, better sound, more entertainment, lighting, pyrotechnics, activities, food & drink and a firework finale, M Festival has come along way and now attracts over 3000 people. annually
We hope to see you on Saturday 6th July 2019 to make our 10th M Festival a very special anniversary!
