Festival Partnerships

DIY has developed media, marketing and creative partnerships with over 20 festivals a year across UK, US and Europe. Current clients include The Great Escape, SXSW, Mad Cool, Open’er, Flow Festival, Y Not and Deer Shed, and Reeperbahn among others.

As part of our artists development programme we are able to co-curate exciting emerging artist stages alongside education programmes. One of the most longstanding examples of this has been The Great Escape, where DIY takeover four evenings at the renowned Horatio’s at the end of Brighton Pier to showcase some of the best new bands in the first stages of their career.
