Hi there lovelies, This week we are going back in time in 2016, when I first started my podcast, called back then Successful entrepreneurs. I had the pleasure to interview Carl Williams, to get a better understanding of the beginning of both the Jazz and Folk festivals. How he and Gerv got started and how they got to where there are today, as one of the most famous festivals right in the center of the UK. The festivals have included the likes of Chaka Khan, Soul II Soul, George Clinton Parliament Funkadelic, De La Soul, Gregory Porter, Fun Lovin Criminals, Chic Feat. Nile Rogers and Public Enemy and many more… This episode is one of my first interview, I apologise for the quality and my style of the interviewer. I used to come to both festival and provide aerial views for Carl, and used to love it. It’s an amazing place to be if you are into live music. I do hope you enjoy it thought. If you are thinking of starting a music festival there is good advice from Carl to get you started.
