British & International Federation of Festivals

British & International Federation of Festivals (BIFF)

Sutton Music Festival is affiliated to the British and International Federation of Festivals (BIFF). For over 100 years BIFF has been supporting amateur performing arts festivals to provide performance opportunities in their local communities. They have nearly 250 member Festivals across the UK and abroad and together they provide millions of performance opportunities for children, young people and adults.

BIFF plays a key role in providing guidance and quality control to all its members with regard to governance and adjudicator accountability. Sutton Music Festival has robust safety procedures that are fully compliant with policies and guidance set down by the Federation.

This film produced by BIFF shows brilliantly the importance of setting high cultural and artistic standards and the benefit of festivals to the community.
