The front cover this year, has been designed by “Big Jeff”, renowned gig goer from Bristol with a huge following of musicians and artists.

He is also IVW’s disability Ambassador. It is a first for Jeff who has always wanted to design an album cover and also has an art exhibition launching next year.
