Reading Festival 2022 Review

by john / Aug 30, 2022 / 0 comments

This year was my first time attending Reading/Leeds since 2015. My reasons for not attending in the last few years have been down to my assumptions on what the experience would be like. I suspected I would feel very out of place, very old, and uncomfortable experience. It is worth saying that musically as well, I am far more of a rock and metal fan. Pop and hip-hop are genres that I dip my toe into, but don't listen to very much.

The Green Man Festival in the Brecon Beacons, Wales, held from August 18th-22nd 2022, attracted more than 25,000 attendees, making it one of the largest festivals in the UK. Despite the impressive lineup featuring big names like Kraftwerk and Michael Kiwanuka, the sense of community and togetherness remained the festival's driving force. The festival offered a range of genres, and attendees had the opportunity to discover new bands like Wunderhorse and Honeyglaze, and enjoy established acts like Metronomy, Cassandra Jenkins, Mdou Moctar, and Beach House.

Boomtown 2022 - Festival Review

by Kieron / Aug 23, 2022 / 0 comments

This year, Boomtown brought with it a sense of immense excitement and cautious apprehension. It’s no secret that three years of lost revenue would impact any festival, let alone one that reinvests so heavily in the spectacle of art and culture. The recondensation of the city was the talk of the town as the anticipation rose with the citizens gathered at the gates. As the fences were cleared and life began to flood the streets, worries faded as people were consumed by the twists and turns of the redesigned city.

Noisily festival, oh how we’ve missed you…

Three years is a long time. A lot can happen. People change their careers, homes and even create more people. Very little is a constant… apart from the apparently overwhelming desire to go nuts and smash it to some of the best of the UK’s alternative electronic music in a woodland setting.

Alright, folks, hold on tight because we're about to take a wild ride through the Glastonbury Festival 2022. I'm John, and I'm here to give you the inside scoop on what went down at the festival, from the main acts to the different stages and areas of the festival.

Isle of Wight Festival 2022 Review

Hey guys, John here from Festivals and Gigs, and I'm still buzzing from the Isle of Wight Festival 2022! What a lineup, what a weekend! I mean, where do I even start?

Let's kick things off with Saturday's Main Stage performances. Blossoms rocked the stage, Chinchilla brought the house down, and Jessie Ware had the crowd grooving. But the real highlight was Kasabian, who brought their unique blend of rock and roll swagger to the Isle of Wight. These guys never disappoint, and they definitely didn't disappoint me.
