About Live: Ferndown

Live: Ferndown was the concept of Steve Lugg, supported by Music Industry and technical/venue partners. Steve was crazy about live music of all genres, passionate about supporting young people, and loved community. Sadly Steve passed away in 2018 and we have come together to continue Live: Ferndown in his memory.

With partners, Live: Ferndown brings these ingredients together in a vibrant and accessible format to offer you an annual showcase of musical talent, along with other associated events.

Our Chosen Charity

Live: Ferndown, the wonderful artists who take part and all our fans and supporters support a local charity every year in this not for profit enterprise.  In 2018 we supported the Mayor’s charity, being The Ferndown Wheelpark, for bmx, skateboards, in-line skates and scooters. In 2019 we shall be supporting a similar project, and more details will be posted as we get them.

Our Philosophy is ‘Bringing People Together’.  In doing that we want to be out there, Ferndown Rocks!  Join us.

Live: Ferndown is a very professional and well run show, allowing up and coming artists to showcase their talents on a great stage. I am honoured to be a judge for this fantastic event! ~Helena Mace

I’m extremely proud to be so involved with this event – it glues the whole community together – and, at the same time allows up and coming stars into one of the best stages in the area. ~Matt Black
