  3. I once wrote a review saying how dreadful I thought Dawn Penn was as a live act. I saw her a second time and that didn't change my mind. Both of those times she was backed by a DJ and not a live band.


    I saw her again yesterday at Bristol's Harbourfest, with a live band. She was great! :D


    That was a hard crowd to win over, too - and she got them.

  4. My brothers and I are holding a special concert in memory of my late father (George Dougie Leslie) who was the secretary of the Sinatra society in Glasgow. We have Scotland’s No:1 Sinatra tribute act (Frank Holden) and all proceeds will be going to Headcase Cancer Trust. It would be great if you could do a wee piece on this or give us a wee mention.

    Here it is folks, perhaps this year’s ultimate event, celebrating 100 years of the music of Frank Sinatra at the venue of his final show in Great Britain, Ibrox Stadium.

  8. For the first time ever in the United Kingdom, the sacred powder art painting of the Kathakali tradition of Kerala in South India will be shown. The drawing is done directly with the hand without using any tools whatsoever. The powders used are all nautral, and are used to construct the sacred Kalamuzhutu image over a period of four days from 15th to 18th July. At the same event, Tibetan monks from Tashi Lhunpo Monastery will construct a Tantric Sand Mandala made out of millions of grains of sand, coloured to represent precious jewels, creating an image of a sacred palace into which the Buddha and his retinue are invited as part of an initiation ceremony.

    Both these intricate images, so inherently impermanent in nature, will be destroyed in ceremonies at their completion.

    Alongside these asonishing works of art there will be workshops of dance and music from both traditions, performances of the monastic Cham from the Tibetan monastery and of the sacred stories of the South Indian Kathakali traditionan. Internationally renowned teacher, Ringu Tulku Rinpoche, will be giving a series of talks on Tibetan Buddhism throughout the festival.

    We hope to see you there!

    blog-0112748001429872211.jpgAt 15 I attended my first festival, NASS, a sister festival or the Relentless groups Freeze & Boardmasters festivals that happen in the south of the UK.

    That festival enlightened me to some euphoric world of freedom, immersion, creativity, nostalgia and carefree happiness. I was unaware of my subconscious desires to pursue a career working within an industry that creates said feelings and experiences, yet here I am 7 years later sat in the library of my university, researching for one of two final pieces of work to complete a degree in Events Management to then go on and chase my desire of becoming a creator of innovative and immersive, experiential festival content.

    I've been immersed in the theories of co-creation, experiential marketing, innovation, hyper-reality and technological advances at festivals... not only has this contributed to assignments and my dissertation which was an Auto-ethnographic study of my own emotional and spiritual experience at a winter sports festival (Rise 2014)... it's also triggered a question...Generation Y? A very suitable name, we are a generation of questions.

    Generations before us, accepted, they may have wondered but never asked, questions may have been answered but were left unspoken. However, we, Generation Y are a generation of asking WHY, why do we want to experience? Why do we want to co-create and why do we want that immersive feeling of nostalgia, euphoria, freedom, happiness and carelessness?

    We're at the very early yet, fast moving stages of a transformation in the way we interact with our own every day experience as well as our entire exsistance.

    This transformation is the driving force behind trying to figure out why we experience, how we experience and what it does to us, emotionally, spiritually and physically. That question is what got me on a plane to the French Alps on my own to research my own experience at a new up and coming Winter Sports Festival, and that question is what will continue to take me to festivals all over the world.

    Maybe there is some poetic justice in the unknown, maybe the need to know everything is a curse of our generation, and like the meaning of life itself, its something we learn and experience rather than define.


    Come join us on 1st May at The Chambers, Cheriton Place in Folkestone.


    A celebration of Reggae music



    Earl Gateshead (Trojan Sound System)

    Paul Steward (Port-O-Jam Sound System)

    Daniel Hatcher (G-Ranch Crew)

    Amanda & Nathan Atkins (Frederick's Unique Sound System)


    This is something a bit special!

    I'm sure all those great folk (which I TOTALLY mean) who've been involved in Ska in the town will understand when i say that when there were just a couple of nights dedicated to the beloved sound..well then, it felt SPECIAL !

    It felt that way because those that loved it made it that way.

    It did get - i think it's fair to say - a bit overwhelming when EVERYTHING became SKA driven around here and now that the dust has settled a bit, an event such as this can stand out...because it IS outstanding!!

    Fredericks Unique Sound System (F.U.S.S.) LOVE Reggae & Ska and have dedicated so much of their own time & money into the scene. Born of that sincerity, they've found themselves working with those that not only feel the same but are leaders in the scene.

    This is where EARL GATESHEAD pops in!

    This man has BREATHED the reggae & Ska scene since the 70's when he dj'd in between punk bands in Brixton, playing the best Jamaica had to offer.

    He's head of & main Dj now for the TROJAN Sound System & has played at FABRIC (the first reggae DJ ever invited to do so) and is this year playing his 2nd year of residency at SPACE in Ibiza! !

    This man IS an international dj Superstar, it's just he happens to wear a flat cap instead of a twat (Justin Bieber) box cap!

    Must be nice to have nothing to prove smile emoticon

    This night at The Chambers is on Fri May 1st (bank holiday weekend) & is a FREE ENTRY affair!

    Realise how lucky we are here Folkestone....the rest of Europe have to pay HANDSOMELY to see this man & you can see not only him but ALSO Mista P from Port-O-Jam AND Danny Hatcher from G Ranch Crew AND F.U.S.S....ALL FOR FREE!

    Come to enjoy & come looking sharp!

    Above all, come to love the music & see a man who's influence in the scene can't be denied!

    A big night for us Folkestone!!

    FREE ENTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey everybody...

    For my dissertation I am looking at the effects of negative word of mouth on music festival goers. I would highly appreciate it if you could spare 2 minutes of your time to fill out the survey, through the link below.

    You'd be a great help :)

    Thank You

  10. blog-0056418001420328097.jpgSo after meeting the guys!

    We thought, in classic festival style, it was time to wack out the booze!

    But in a very British manner, we decided to do this in the form of 'having a couple of drinks with dinner, then getting smashed in the hotel room'...

    So we get to know each other etc.. get drunk etc etc

    Then we ventured out into the midst of Les Deux!

    Mini Bar, Smokey Joes & L'avalance were just the first nights worth of clubs!

    The guys we were with were from Devon and happened to know the Dj's playing in Mini Bar..and epic Dj's they were!!

    Considering I've never been a fan of clubbing, I had an amazing night, there was no lairy people lingering about, not try hard girls, no overly drunk 17 year old hiding in the corner. Just a load of like minded people in a sweaty room listening to what I can only describe as a drug for your ears!

    Went back to the hotel room for some more drinks and to drop off the ski jackets (Beer jacket had replaced by this point).. went back out! danced some more, ended up in the club next door, which was surprisingly quiet, however we still had a kick ass night!

    and instead of a camp site we had a hotel room to juggle with, ended up going back there, with some lovely random Welsh boys that the guys bumped into the day before, and the guys from the room over the hall, ended up staying up until 7:30am chatting about life.. The festival feeling was there!!

    & Then we slept...

  13. blog-0659850001398792790.jpg3 days and preparations are hotting up!

    This is an exciting opportunity to celebrate nature, culture, landscape and life along the River Wye. Starting at Hereford on May 3,the Wye Valley River Festival events flow downstream as communities contribute to the lively and thought-provoking programme. The Festival's grand finale is in Chepstow on May 18.The river is rising. Nature is on trial – who will speak for the spirit of the Wye?

    The Wye Valley River Festival follows the story of Ratty the Wye water vole, leader of the Creatures' Republic of Wye (CROW), who is on the run from predatory prosecutor Mink and Judge Wild Boar. The twists and turns of the chase unfold in a series of community and arts events down the river. Desperate Men are designing this innovative arts event. Ratty is finally captured and brought to trial at a Grand Assizes in Monmouth’s 16th century Shire Hall. The events lead to a spectacular final at Chepstow Bridge with massed choir, fire, flame and illuminations.

    We have human fountains, tightrope walking over the Wye, Vera the human manipulated vehicle, talks, exhibitions, music perfomances and festivals, fetes, picnics and a whole raft of entertainment. Go onto to look at our progranmme of events at each city, town and village along the river.

    Hey guys,

    I am doing my dissertation topic on "what motivates people to attend the Wireless Festival?"

    If you have been can you please identify what motivated you to go and whether those motivation or expectations you had were met?

    If you have not been, based on what you have seen or heard what would motivate you to attend the Wireless Festival?

    Any comments regrading the topic are useful and appreciated.

    Please help, and thank you for the responses :)
