Arguably the Northwest’s most outrageous festival, the infamous Beat Herder returns next week for her 14th year. And we are beyond excited to be attending this year being close to our home town in the North west its at atrocity that we haven’t attended before!, we have only heard great things about this festival and im sure it won’t disappoint, from what we have seen it looks like a mini Boomtown full of creativity and positivity with great music and even better vibes. Built on unconditional love and the tireless efforts of many. From plants grown from seed, hand painted signs and flags, this years fancy dress with the fantastic letter R , the detail and creativity is endless. As always the creators aim to push these boundaries further, and excitement is building as the hours pass. This summer’s festival offers an amazing caliber of talent. A trio of headliners features Rudimental, Groove Armada, Hannah Wants. A huge variety of artists populate the festival, giving those lucky enough to have tickets as they sold out ages ago a whole city to get lost in. Have a listen to The Beat-Herder 2019 playlist to get you in the mood ! Visit […]
It’s been a couple of weeks since we left Boomtown and I’m still not 100% on how to describe the Festival, I will say it’s the most immersive and entertaining festival I have visited. I think the most common term I heard all weekend was “This place is West” in the best possible way! And I know we didn’t get a chance to see everything but we also know we will be back! Boomtown is just too big and has so much to offer everyone to be able to take everything in, in one chapter. So for everyone who can only manage to read a few lines of a post looking for a review, ours for Boomtown fair would be 10 out of 10! Every festival goer must go, really! I will expand on why below for those who don’t mind a little reading. Pro’s & Con’s Pro’s Well staffed with friendly security, helpful support staff. Well planned out 10am – 4am always something going on. Spoilt for choice with food, all priced reasonably. (some 24 hours) Once through the main gates no more security checks. (Take your own drinks to stages) 25 main stages and over 80 street venues. […]
Boomtown’s tenth chapter is shaping up to be an almighty celebration of the festival’s journey over the past decade. When you think where Boomtown started to how it’s evolved into the internationally renowned festival it is today, you can tell – the machine cannot be stopped. Boomtown Fair Boomtown Fair is a four-day music festival on the second weekend of August. It started in 2009 has been held at the Matterley Estate in Hampshire since 2011, which is part of the South Downs National Park. Being invited to the festival has been an amazing eye-opener, as most of us are from far “up north” so Boomtown hadn’t really been on our festival radar with the 5+ hour drive down to Winchester. However, after watching all the Boomtown “after” films I can say we are shocked we haven’t been to Boomtown before. As you can tell we are extremely excited to be joining them for the 10th anniversary. With Boomtown being the only UK festival where you are going to see the amazing Gorillaz, and American punk rap Limp Bizkit over to reggae legend Jimmy Cliff and another 500 artists, we can safely say that the 8th to the 12th of August 2018 is […]
With literally thousands of European music festivals every year wouldn’t it be great if we had a map of all of the music festivals in Europe, to show us what was available. We enjoy most of these music festivals during the summer months, maybe with some hope that during this time we will get some nicer weather. As we know with many festivals such as Glastonbury we are much more accustomed with packing our wellies than suntan cream. As you might know, if you read our blog How to prepare for your very first music festival. However, most of the music festivals do take place during the small space of time between May to September and they are scattered all over Europe, you probably don’t even realise just how close many festivals are to you, and how many you could fit in during that time. Whether these festivals are in the deepest darkest countryside, by the seaside or in an industrial area, music festivals are usually out of the way, hard to find and not always very well advertised so we are often unsure what is going on in our area or other areas in which we would like to […]
