Basingstokes very own record company – onehundredpercentmusic Ltd – organised their own tent - the 100% Tent for Basingstoke Live Festival 2008.
This is a free, 2 day festival held in the centre of Basingstoke at the Memorial Park.
In 2008 it ran from :
Saturday 12th July : 1pm - 10.30pm
Sunday 13th July : 1pm - 7.30pm
The organisers said ' The involvement this year of 100% Music has transformed this festival'. The attendance went from 4,000 to 10,000.
Adding value to their appointment - 100% Music distributed a free CD before and during the festival - featuring every band appearing in the 100% Tent. This is unprecedented at any festival and with a run of 5000 units - 100% Music continue to innovate and inspire.

The 100% Basingstoke Double album - with all proceeds going to St Michaels Hospice – has been a huge success. Lauded as ‘gig of the year’ - with features on the radio and Meridian TV – and now available worldwide on iTunes - Basingstokes music talent has never been better recognised, within the town or outside of it.
Also in the tent – artists from the 100% Reading double album brought a fresh crop of quality performers to the festival. With a strong emphasis on diversity – artists from onehundredpercentmusic were found on every stage
