Summer update

Posted on: August 5, 2014

Blissfields, Basingstoke Live, Music on The Meadows, FemRock and Outcider Fest!

That’s what we’ve been up to since the last update on here. So much to say about each of these events that it’s hard to sum up in a little update but I’ll try.

As always Blissfields was accommodating and Brilliant! Staff friendly as can be, great crowd and great bands. Jim threw up on Jager, Jay got messy on gin and Ross went home. Pretty standard really!

Basingstoke Live was amazingly cool, the stage was black out with a circus of horrors theme. We all got dressed up in make-up and costumes and stormed the stage, in return the crowd went mental and we all had a lot of fun.

Music on the Meadows was very chilled and relaxed, the music was totally organised by young teens in the local music scene and they did a smashing job of putting together a great bit of entertainment.

FemRock and Outcider Fest… MY GOD! What a back to back double header of a weekend! Everyone over at FemRock (Brighton, Green Door Store) were fantastic, the venue was one of the most basic set ups we’ve played this year and probably the best at the same time! Nothing fancy about the venue, just a great bunch of people and great bands to boot!

Outcider on the other hand… WOW! What a great site they had! This festival was based on a farm not far out of Bristol with stages in two large farm sheds. The stages ran back to back meaning you never had to miss a band, the team there were on the ball while keeping a very laid back attitude towards the whole event and it was certainly the smallest and most fun festival I (Jim) have been to this year! Not a bad word to be said about this one!

So there’s a little bit about what we’ve been doing, there will be a video or two coming up in the next few weeks to document the whole lot to some extent and we’ll also be giving you and update of what’s to come for the rest of the year!

Cheers, Jim
