PRESS RELEASE

Thursday 26th January 2017

The organisers of JLMF would like to thank the members of the public, its business partners and all those who have made the holding of the event possible over the last 13 years. Unfortunately, there will not be a Jersey Live in 2017. The organisers of Jersey Live Music Festival announce that Jersey Live 2016 was in fact the last Jersey Live Music Festival, with the two founder promoters having made the decision to move forward on separate projects. Jersey Live certainly bowed out in style in 2016, with highlight performances by Disclosure, Madness, Richard Ashcroft and Sigma amongst others.

In its 13 years of running, Jersey Live has captivated hundreds of thousands of local and overseas music fans. The event has played host to many prolific acts including Ed Sheeran, Snow Patrol, Ellie Goulding, Kasabian, Calvin Harris, The Prodigy, Rudimental, Fat Boy Slim, Clean Bandit, Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Biffy Clyro, to name but a few. Once again, the organisers would like to express a MASSIVE thanks to all of the people and companies that have been involved from the start and have shown great support in helping Jersey Live become the Islands signature music festival over the past 13 years. In particular, the Jersey Live team would like to thank all of our sponsors, business partners and suppliers, as well as the Parish of Trinity, the licensing authorities, emergency services, honorary police, St John Ambulance, Jersey Youth Service and our loyal team of volunteers who have consistently given up their time to help to stage the events. Finally, we would like to save the biggest THANK YOU to everybody who has attended any of the 13 Editions of Jersey Live. It was an absolute pleasure being part of Jersey history and hopefully providing memories that you will have for the rest of your days.

Warren Le Sueur: “I would like to say that we have had an absolutely amazing time during the 13 years running Jersey Live and its been a great journey, but Warren Holt and I both feel that the time is right for us to end our Jersey Live adventure, along with Folklore Festival also, with fond memories. We now have very different ideas and influences from when we first started and we look forward to being part of different types of events, separately, in the future.”

Warren Holt: “It is a great pity that an exciting journey has come to an end. This was very much Jersey’s event as apposed to a voyage of the two founders. The members of the public had made Jersey Live become one of the key annual events in Jersey. Although Warren and I are now going in other directions, I sincerely hope that I will be able to be party to another significant event one day in Jersey.”

From Everybody at Jersey Live Festival

THANK YOU FOR THE MUSIC…..IT’S BEEN A PLEASURE!
