After a successful Debut Launch in 2019, Mind Fest returns to Nottingham in 2021! Mind Fest is a Music Festival fundraising for the Mental Health Charity, Mind as well as raising awareness for Mental Illness. Last year we raised £1500 through so much generous support and we hope to raise even more this time around.

Mind Fest is the U.K’s freshest Alternative Festival bringing you a diverse line up of Rock Artists from Pop Punk to Grunge, Emo to Indie and everything in between. We host the greatest up and coming bands on the scene, most of which have featured on Kerrang! Radio and BBC Introducing. Mind Fest is your perfect warm up for the festival season, and a great to shake of those winter blues. We guarantee you will find your new favourite band. Mind Fest 2021 takes places across two of Nottingham’s most respected venues, The Bodega & Rough Trade and we are always looking for more venues to work with to expand and reach as many people as we can. One in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. Around 450 million people currently suffer from such conditions, placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide. Treatments are available, but nearly two-thirds of people with a known mental disorder never seek help from a health professional. Stigma, discrimination, and neglect prevent care and treatment from reaching people with mental disorders. Where there is neglect, there is little or no understanding. Where there is no understanding, there is neglect.
Mind Fest Promoter Aaron Juska-Bowes said, “Since I opened up about my own Mental Health journey I have had so many people come to talk to me about their own experiences, it’s great to know that we have that social network to go to when times get hard. When I started Mind Fest, I was overwhelmed with the amount of support the festival got, there were so many involved that made it possible. A lot of people volunteered their time and I am extremely grateful. Together we can work towards better mental health for everyone.” Mind Fest is passionate and committed to removing the Stigma that comes with Mental Illness, no one should be discriminated against and those who require support and treatment should be able to access it. Music is the perfect catalyst for recovery, with many artists and fans using their passion for therapy. We bring like-minded people together to support one another through live music. We hope to see you there!
