A community based festival, in the heart of the leafy suburbs of South East London, Leefest plays tribute to local talent. With a bit of something for people of all ages and music arraying from hip-hop to Indie and a great atmosphere, Leefest promises to provide a great time. It is also a non-profit event.

Although being centred around young people the festival is targeted at an audience of all ages and offers opportunities for unsigned artists to play alongside seasoned professionals.

Trivia

LeeFest began in 2006. The festival took place in teenager Lee Denny's back garden on August 31 in Beckenham, Kent.

The following year LeeFest returned to Lee's garden with two stages (one canopy stage and one acoustic tent). 300 people attended and over 10 bands and artists played.

In 2008 the event had out grown the garden and moved to fields near Langley Park School for Boys. This site was again used to host the event on August 15, 2009, over one thousand people were present. The 4th year of the festival was the first year LeeFest represented Kids Company as its chosen charity.
