The Gibraltar Music Festival is an annual music festival held in the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar. The Government of Gibraltar's Ministry of Culture confirmed on 10 August 2012, that the inaugural event would be held on 8 September 2012 at the Victoria Stadium. The first festival had a British artist, Jessie J as headlining act. The rest of the lineup consisted of Ali Campbell from UB40, and local bands Noiz and Jetstream.[1]

Tickets for the event sold at £30 for general standing entry, £50 for unreserved seats and £100 for VIP entry. They were available online, at local shops and stores in Spain. Free tickets were available from children under 12 years of age accompanied by a ticket holding adult.[2][3] The festival is expected to become an annual event.[4]

The event was organised by the Government of Gibraltar as part of the Gibraltar National Week celebrations.[4] The music festival is the largest held on The Rock.[5]
