COVID-19 has drastically affected artists and festivals in many negative ways!
We were due to have over 100 bands spread accross 19 venues this year but we unfortunetly has to cancel the event resulting in losses accross the board.
In 2019, if all who attended The Hootie had donated £1 each, we would have raised £30,000. In reality, the donations totalled less than 10% of this.
The Hanwell Hootie Music Festival is a FREE one day event held each May in Hanwell, West London. We are a not for profit festival run entirely by volunteers from all sections of society and are a registered community interest company. We believe strongly that everyone should have the opportunity to experience real live music. We pay all our musicians a good fee to play as we understand how hard it is for bands to get a platform to perform in London. We showcase young talent on our designated youth stage giving the young people a unique opportunity to gain vital stage experience.
