About Us

Cottingham Springboard Live Music Festival showcases, unsigned, local, national and sometimes international artists. The festival brings you all kinds of musical styles.

We invite other promoters who run regular music events throughout the year to run their stages at the festival. This enables the festival to bring  a wide variety of opportunities to the artists, promoters and those that just love discovering new music and experiencing a very friendly festival. 


The Beginnings 

In  the summer of 2006 in Ye Old Brewery Room of King Billy, Cottingham. There was a full day of live music organised by Ian (Bones) Kennington. On sound was Dennis Caruana. The name of the event was "The Springboard Summer Bash". Showcasing new music from unsigned artists. The day was such a hugh success. Punters, musicians, customers, landlady, bar staff was demanding more for the following year.  Each year different venues across Cottingham  was asking to join in the annual event. Then this humble event quickly became Cottingham Springboard Festival. It grew in popularity over the years and has become one of  East Yorkshire's biggest weekend festivals for unsigned music. Attracting over 10,000 people across the weekend.
