Curated Music 2015



As if a 7 day programme of workshops, talks, exhibitions, competitions, and murals wasn’t enough, we invited 7 record labels and promoters to curate music at the festival alongside each event.

Music is such an important aspect of GDFS. It helps everyone relax, it brings people together, it builds up energy, it can set the mood and it can create a talking point.

Thank you to all of the DJs and artists involved.
