Fi.Fest organiser Lee Page said:

“As someone who works in the entertainment industry, the last two years throughout the Pandemic have been really hard.

“Being able to host Fi.Fest 2021 last year felt like a dream come true because we were finally able to bring friends and families together to dance, socialise and party.

“We were blown away by the support from the local community and the popularity of Fi.Fest means we can make it even bigger and better in 2022.”
