LIVE REVIEW: Y Not? 2018 – Who Was There?

As I sat last Sunday guarded from the relentless elements by my trusty poncho in Y Not’s misty mountain camping field I had an overwhelming sense of a bittersweet redemption story.

The festival… Keep Reading

Northern Invasion Festival, Somerset Wisconsin

After the dust settles, all we are left with is our memories. It’s been almost two weeks since Northern Invasion closed out its 4th year.

Leeds 2017 was an eclectic culmination of all the elements of the idyllic British festival, even those as ever elusive as consistent sunshine throughout. Indeed the impressively varied collection of artists and unending enthusiasm from the campers created a bubble in which we could all forget the constraints of offices and mortgages and instead focus upon revelling in the fantastic atmosphere.

FOTF Download Festival 2017 Review

Download.. the heaven for all metalheads, emo kids and those who seek refuge in the heavier side of music. Although I’m more used to head nodding than heading banging, for one weekend in a summery June, I find myself in midst of a sea of mosh pits, devil horns and the worst array of haircuts since Woodstock 69, and after a hungover, 4 hour coach journey, I find myself standing… Keep Reading
