The East Anglian Festival Network Festival Awards started as a bit of fun through the Gigs Out website when the EAFN was being developed.
The first two surveys attracted hundreds of votes for dozens of Festivals. After the launch of the EAFN in 2018 several thousand voted for around half the five hundred festivals listed in three counties.
Over seven hundred East Anglian Festivals took place in 2019. The awards proved even more popular with four separate polls and thousands of votes for Cambridgeshire Festivals, Norfolk Festivals and Suffolk Festivals and the addition of Essex Festivals.
Sadly COVID19 put paid to 95% of the festivals in 2020 so the awards were put on hold but they are returning for 2021 as 65% of the festivals took place – and voting is now open, see the links below:
