Music Programme 2016


Music is an important aspect of GDFS. It’s the fabric of the festival’s atmosphere – helping everyone relax, bringing people together, setting the mood and creating talking points.

Each day is curated by a different record label, promoter or radio station; who each invite guests, friends and collaborators to play music in the space.

This year, the music was live streamed on Subcity Radio, which you can listen back to here:
