"Amazing," said Galtres' festival director James Houston. "Especially when you think about the many hundreds of festivals in the UK, and the reputation and backing some of them have. Truly incredible."

SupaJam praised the Galtres Festival policy on original music and artist engagement, as well as its sense of fun and community. The write-up concluded: “... we trust this gem of a festival to restore our faith in having fun in a field”.

"There are a lot of values behind Galtres," explained James, "and the way we work with original artists and audiences is only the start of it. We're delighted that sticking to what we believe in - which if we're honest hasn't been easy given the economic pressures in recent years - does pay dividends and has earned us this huge accolade. Thanks SupaJam!"
