Organisers of Swaffham’s Free Festival have appealed for business leaders and town residents to help with staging the event again next year.
Hundreds of music fans enjoyed the town’s second festival, which was staged over two days of the bank holiday weekend.
But, following a meeting on Tuesday, officials have warned that they will need more help with funding and stewarding of the event in 2014.
Dennis Tallon, chairman of the Iceni Partnership which organised the festival in conjunction with Root Music, said it cost up to £7,000 to stage this year’s event.
Although the festival did receive some financial backing from Breckland Council, he believes that local traders ought to do more to get behind the event.
He said: “It’s not the kind of thing the Iceni can fund itself. We need support from local businesses. People have got to start being realistic.”
He added that pubs around the market square, where two stages were set up for the second day of the festival on Sunday, had been “absolutely heaving” during the day.
In total, organisers estimate that around 800 people attended some part of the festival, which began at the Campingland on Saturday afternoon.
And despite poor weather, more than 300 people enjoyed the first day of the event.
Mr Tallon said: “It was really good despite the weather. We had a lot of plaudits from the people who did come. People were saying we should continue it and do it again next year.”
Crowds for the Sunday performances are thought to have peaked at around the 600 mark.
The partnership also wants to hear from people who would be willing to volunteer to act as stewards at next year’s festival.
Around 20 stewards oversaw the weekend’s events, but Mr Tallon said around 10 more would be needed in 2014 in order to ease the burden on all those helping out.
