Fairport's Cropredy Convention Everyday there is a cavalry charge at Cropredy when the gates open. But these aren't your standard gig junkies wanting to plant their elbows on the stage. These are regulars with camping chairs and picnic blankets looking for the best seated view half-way up the slope in front of the mixing desk. If you never felt more like sitting the blues this Oxfordshire festival is the one for you.

Love 4 Music Festival 2019 Now in its second year, Love 4 Music is a small one day dance festival created by Cultural Events Promotions, and whilst it would be fair to say that this event was by no means a sell-out, it would be equally fair to say that this is a festival very much in its infancy, but shows great promise, and has all the potential to become a bigger and permanent fixture in an already busy festival schedule in the UK.

Rockaway Beach 2019 Once upon a time there was a firm belief that music festivals should only take place during the summer months and which should also entail several nights camping.

Galtres Festival Galtres opened with Doncaster band and personal friends Bang Bang Romeo, their first performance on a main festival stage. No surprises in that they nailed it. Just a shame more people couldn't see them due to the site opening not long before they came on stage. I spoke to a few people that night who could hear the band from the queue and were gutted they didn't get to see them.

But that wasn't going to dampen anyone's spirits anytime soon. Held across five stages in five different and very intimate venues, you'd do good to find another event that offers so many amazing bands, both big and small, for such a reasonable price.
