Summer Festival Round Up Pt.1
As with every year Westbury artists are heavily involved across the UK’s festival season and here are just some of the acts we feel are a must see.
This year’s Glastonbury looks like its going to be perfect weather for shades, sunscreen and sandals so leave your wellies at home and get ready to see an amazing show from Emika at the Glade stage on Saturday evening. The stage also features legends Way out West, Annie Nightingale and Paul Woolford meaning Emika will be in some pretty esteemed company.
On the Gully Stage we have Serocee, Friday evening. UK Dub pioneers Zion Train Soundsystem play The Cave on Friday and also the Hell stage in the early hours of Monday morning. Goldmaster Allstars have a busy weekend playing everyday of the festival on various stages. There is a mini Westbury takeover of the Genosys stage with sets from techno pioneer Mr G plus sets from Brawther and Dungeon Meat.
Reggae Roast are not only bringing their sun kissed reggae vibes to the Rum Shack at Glastonbury but are taking their full sound system to numerous festivals across the summer including Boomtown, Nozstock Festival, Tokyo World and Love Of Dub. The UK’s only 100% reggae festival One Love Festival, 4th – 6th of September, features some big hitters with Little Roy, Mad Professor and Vivian Jones.
Summer would not be the same without Fairport Convention's annual takeover of the sleepy village, Cropredy. This years three day folk-fest includes Level 42 and The Proclaimers, plus the traditional Fairport headline slot.
British Sea Power
play Kendal Calling festival on 1st August, Forgotten Fields Festival on 9th August and Festival Number 6 on 5th September. The band have been touring hard with shows all over the UK promoting The Decline of British Sea Power – RE-ISSUE with the gigs receiving rave reviews from critics, nostalgic fans, as well as bringing some new fans into the fold
