The key factors leading to the cancellation of Bestival
Bestival is a UK fancy dress music festival and has a sister festival called Camp Bestival for a younger audience. Both Bestival and Camp Bestival are run by the same organisers. In 2018, the festival came under scrutiny for failing to pay its artists and many workers. It subsequently went to administration and was cancelled for summer 2019.

So What Happened To
I grew up in Edinburgh. I was continually told that I should be glad to live in the city that hosts the world's largest art festival. It may well be the world's largest arts festival but it has always been elitist. There was never really anything there for me, especially in music terms. There has been the odd exception. Orbital playing the Ross Bandstand being one. This was when they drowned out the lone bagpiper at the Military Tattoo with Satan.
This is the first year that I can remember

Festival season is almost here again, and it’s important to stay safe while having fun. In 2015, it was estimated that one in every 500 festivalgoers were victims of crime. People looking to enjoy a summer enjoying live music and an exciting community atmosphere also need to be aware of the security risks. Fuad Zain, Centre Owner of First Security Training, shares some top tips to keep you safe throughout the festival season.
1. Find out where the security are. People tend to beha
HELLO FESTIVAL GOERS,

CALLING ALL FESTIVAL HEADS!! I always hated people who asked this on Facebook so I came here instead! I've created a survey for my dissertation focused on UK music festivals and would massively appreciate it if anyone who has been to a music festival in the UK in the last year could complete it! Takes barely any time and would help me out a lot. Thank you!
well, I'd forgotten all about this until Z printed off one of my blogs on here and handed it to me in the week. I think Facebook kind of took over for angst, but is actually less expressive so I thought I'd return. I'm not really doing much treading water as the arachnoid cyst and the brain connections continue to bug the hell out of my life with noisy tinnitus and balance issues - worsened by more recent labyrinthitis (probably from the neural feedback shorting out as it gets more blocked/damag

Notoriety of the Dessert Recipes can't be denied in light of the fact that it is a standout amongst the most vital cooking styles for the clients. The sweet pumpkin desserts could go far in giving sweet fragrance in a faultless way. Milk is made sharp by including the lemon juice and the blend is placed in to the expansive bowl. Molasses alongside the heating pop and the flour is blended to convey the best outcomes. The Easy Dessert Recipes are known to make stunning open doors for the clients w
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!
That was a hard crowd to win over, too - and she got them.
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.

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
At 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 o
