The Camden town centre was recently transformed into a gig-venue with a difference.
The town centre held the first live music festival of its type hosted by Camden Council.
Some of these were not your standard music venue.
The more interesting music sites were a clothing boutique, a shoe store, an interior design store and shopping arcade.
There were also the more traditional music venues ranging from local hotels, restaurant and local cafes.
There were a total 27 artists and musicians made up of solo acts, to quartets and bands.
Music genres covered a range of tastes and preferences including jazz, world music, traditional, country, pop, to folk music.
Artists ranged from the professional to up-and-coming music outfits.
Camden mayor Councillor Lara Symkowiak has said:
This unique festival will showcase the diverse musical performers of our area as well as the variety of venues and shops in the Camden town centre, This is an exciting opportunity to promote Camden as a cultural tourist destination for live music in the region.
A map showing the venues was located here, An event poster is located here,
A full list of artists and venues is located here.
Live and Music facilitators were walking around all afternoon to make sure the venues worked well.
Facilitators interviewed some fans seeking feedback. One comment from one fan was that promoters need to advertise the event more widely.
Talking around the area to those who attended the festival they were very impressed. I have heard comments like 'it is about time' and 'long overdue'. 'Great local talent'. 'The venues were great'. 'When is the next one'. Congratulations to the organisers and sponsors for a great all round effort.
