  3. Once Upon a Time in The West Festival 2016

    We've tickled your fancy with the releases so far, but not really let too much out about what is coming up. So on 18th Jan 2016 we'll be releasing the rest of the actsto date, inc 5 more headliners - bands from Bristol to Belgium and right across the spectrum of Rockabilly, Ska, Dub, Klezmer and beyond. Also some news on new things planned, new people onboard and the bit that everyone loves - Perry's new artwork!
  4. Once Upon a Time in The West Festival 2016

    Yep - we're back for 2016.....As the description says - it's a great time in a field - simple as, but more than just the music We're going to be doing a big release of all acts in Jan 2016, but to give you a taste so far... The Destroyers Louis Barrabas & The Bedlam Six Skimmity Hitchers Dana Immanuel & The Stolen Band Some Dogs & plenty of Ska, swing, cowpunk, bluegrass, folk, dub, rockabilly & more headliners to be announced.
  5. Something like Shambala?

    Blowing own trumpet, but do have a look at Once Upon a Time in the West Festival. Its run by a team who work/have worked Glastonbury, Boomtown, Endorse it in Dorset, Bearded Theory etc. Emphasis is on a grand old time with ska, swing, bluegrass, cowpunk, folk - list goes on. Tends on more of the " underground" bands, so previous acts have been Zen Hussies, Los Albertos ( who picked it as one of the few the played when getting back together for one season this year), Curtis Eller American Circus....This year we have The Destroyers, Dana Immanuel & The Stolen Band, Louis Barabbas & The Bedlam 6 and loads more to come ( including more headliners). Really friendly vibe and £65+bf  - down in Wiltshire 14-17th July. Website is on partly updated, so FB page is a bit more on it atm. Big launch in Jan with the new artwork, bands etc
  6. Boomtown Festival 2015

    Yep - that was my booking. We had a few last minute ones pull - bands split, couldn't make it etc. This was after the whole thing had gone to press. Times and line-ups were outside the venue each day on the blackboard. Like Kerplunk said, these things happen, frustrating though it is

    Happy New Year All. It would appear that half the country was struck down with man-flu of some sort or other, so just to cheer people up , we had a bit of an early release over the season. Here's what happened... Here it is....you asked for more Reggae/Dub, so for us the choice was obvious!.....if you didn't catch them first time round now's your chance..25years since the release of their first album, with an international career taking them to festivals all over the UK and into Europe..we are ecstaticly pleased that they can do the gig it's West Country Legends.... Rhythmites!!!!!!

    thanks for that
  14. Once Upon a Time in the West Festival

    Sorry...sorry - a tad tardy with the news.......One of us has been in Europe scouring all the little events out there for the weird and wonderful for Glastonbury, Bath Fringe and OUT West...and others have been running areas at Boomtown, etc and pulling in all the feedback from this year's festy. Soooo.... Firstly, we'd like to say thank-you to all the brilliant crew, security, medics, bands, DJ's, Sally Croissant Neuf, G-Stages, R&B Marquees and Malinkeys, all of whom dug out to help us get this of the ground. Secondly we would like to thanks all the punters - we've had nothing but great feedback from the Village, Farm, local shops about how tidy & respectful you all are. There's a lovely piece written in the local Parish Mag about the event. Not one noise compliant So onto 2015...First Tier tickets sold out in 7 hours!!!! We're well chuffed. Second Tier tickets go onsale on 22nd October from here at 7.30am for £55 per adult- giving those who want to buy before work some time - you can also buy on your mobile device. And what's planned??? Well after the feedback we are looking at keeping everything we had in 2014 ( as you loved it all), putting in more loo's, a wider range of food choices and a quiet camping area. We are also looking into more kids stuff, an semi-open mic/acoustic venue and a few other funky areas/bit & bobs to keep things fun and fresh. Band wise we are keeping the same upbeat party vibe, - Swing, Ska, Bluegrass, Cowpunk, Dance, Dub, Rockabilly& Filthy Blues gilded with some Folk, some Acoustic, some Country and some off-the-wall acts. More news when it happens!!

    Nice one and glad you all had a good time seems like an age ago now, as we've all been straight into other events and not had time to catch up. However a meeting is booked in for tuesday and we will be making some decisions for next year-watch this space and hopefully we'll have some news for you next week :-)
