The first act in main room was very late starting which meant the other acts weren't on as long.One of the acts came on at a different time to what said on line up so some people left thinking they weren't coming on so consequently missed the act .Also because the act came on late they didn't play many songs.

Music was brilliant so was the atmosphere.
A few hours into the festival it felt like I was in a youth club. The venue was freezing the toilets towards the end of the night was an absolute disgrace. Food was being served outside where portacabin loo's were situated you had to pay a minimum of 15 to get 10 tokens to buy drinks an example of this is 3 tokens for a small WKD that's 3 WKD for 15 what a joke!!

I don't think I've been so shocked at the turnout of a black cultured event!! The lack of authenticity was appalling!!! I'm never going back..
The unorganised line up and lack of information on intervils.. Culture appropriation at its finest! The Vip section was disgusting! For the price offered... The option of token only drinks with minimum 15 was unacceptable for those who do not drink alcohol! Meaning I would have to spend 15 just for a soft drink...

The festival was an odd experience for me, it had a very limited Afro Carribben crowd which made me wonder whether it was marketed to these communities effectively, didn't like that the Minimum amount for drinks was capped at 15 for 10 tokens, which caused drink restrictions especially for those wanting non alcoholic beverages who didn't want to spend that much, not really any Authentic Caribbean food, stalls or African/ Caribbean stall holders selling black merchandise or cooking the food.
There was alot of Smoking inside the venue which was not good.
I thought it was especially lacking more female artists on the bill with the expectation of Dawn Penn, who seemed to be stuck on the bottom of the promotional material and not on the main artists line up page. She also had a sound engineer that messed up her set throughout and should of had a Live band.
The VIP area didn't look very VIP to be fair and I thought it would of worked better having live music first then the sounds on after wards instead of everything happening together.
I also thought the event was missing local, young UK reggae acts who seems to very rarely be given a platform for exposure.

The event was good but VIP wasn't worth it.
To improve the VIP experience they need their own line for drinks tokens, front of stage standing area, vip food queues, vip toilets.

Then it would make the VIP experience worth the additional cost.

Only negative is that the 2 rooms were huge, cold & as such lacked a certain intimacy. Felt a little bit like a school disco but with good music! However, the dj's were great, staff worked really hard keeping it clean & us lot fed n watered. The live acts could have done with being fewer & given longer - half hour wasn't enough. Will definitely look into it again next year.

Very poorly organised if that’s what you can call it.
apparently 3 rooms of music but not one signposted. Very cold for an indoor arena.
Not stated clearly that you have buy drink tokens to get drinks (first for me)
What made it worse was paying almost 40 for a vip (early bird) ticket for my husband, my 14 year old daughter and myself.
To later find out that kids had there own way cheaper tickets and the only difference was a wrist band and a poster and a so called vip area that didn’t have enough chairs and tables for the amount of people. no designated toilets still had to go way outside to the porta potties as queue was massive for the half a dozen that were inside.
Security weren’t strict with vip bands and people vaping near kids with staff saying nothing (I did)
Wouldn’t recommend as when I tried to complain nobody would accept any responsibility, venue were saying it was promoters I needed to take it up with.
Don’t waste your money on vip unless you really want to buy an expensive poster.
If it wasn’t for the fact that we’d booked a hotel too I would have gone home.
The best bit was the street food outside even though we had no option to sit and eat in the warmth.

Sound quality terrible
Technical organisation/ logistics poor at best
Communication between organisers and audience non existent.
Know running order of acts performance time displayed anywhere in the venue.
I asked the sound crew for an idea of who was on next. They replied “we don’t know “ they didn’t have a running order . They didn’t have a chance of getting the sound half right from the off.
My first and last attendance at mrf

No disrespect intended to the artists and crew who work extremely hard with little or know information.
I think a more professional team should take leadership of the event.

Security was very good and seemed to be the only thing that was professionally done.

The event itself was brilliant. The token for drinks idea was good but should also be able to purchase them individually as it means I had tokens left but not enough to get another drink. Really unhappy that I paid £89 for 2 VIP tickets which was meant to include a festival poster and wristband and I did not receive them so I paid double the price of some people with nothing to show for it. It was for my 40th birthday so going VIP was to have those things included so not happy about that

That was the worst experience ever. Security felt like police on duty digging every little corner of your clothes, hats, hairs and bags....
Not only that but Turning soundsystem down twice in a night ? In the INDUSTRIAL AREA ? What a joke.... Guy walking with his tablet checking dB in the room.... Do not invite soundsystem if you dunno what it provides !
First and the last for me 🙏

I bought a vip ticket, all I got for this was that I didn’t have to que. the food I wanted was located outside and it was too cold to even bother going out to get any. Acts didn’t stay on stage long as it all didn’t start in time.

The event was badly organised the sound quality was poor and therefore the artist sounded like they were in a sound check loop when most of them was performing PA!! it's something when the Trojan sound system was by far the best act

As for the so called VIP area putting a black table cloth on a table does not make it a VIP area
