Tenty, Vesty, Festy, Festy Festival!

I have bought a tent. I will be bringing my tent to three festivals of the summer, where I will be discovering new places and listening to music that is played live and not on the radio.

After the Oxford fringe in June,  I will be at the Kendal Calling festival in July, and Galtres and Shropshire in August.

At the the Kendal Calling festival I will be doing a thing on sunday 29th, just after 10pm. I am also going to watch Maximo Park, who I first heard on a cassette in a friends car, and who are from Newcastle, and aslso The Lancashire Hotpots, who sing jolly songs and dress in a practical way.

At the Galtres festival, I do not know how to get there yet, but I’m sure it will be ok. I would love to see Seth Lakeman, and Jon Gomm. Seth Lakeman was very nice to Mike Harding on radio 2, and Jon Gomm does really dead clever stuff with his guitar, patting it all over like a baker, so I want to see that.

After that I am at Farmer Phils Festival in lovely Shropshire. I have not met Farmer Phil, but apparently he arrives at the festival in a parachute. There is also a digeridoo workshop and face painting, but not at the same time.

Hopefully it will be really sunny for my tent. I am now going to practice getting my sleeping bag back into the bag it came in.
