2011 Festival Info UK

Hey Guys..

Well, with the number of Festivals rising like taxes at the moment you’d be forgiven for losing track. Don’t feel ashamed, or begin to chastise yourself. Over the next few days I will be compiling a list of Festivals; the Good, the New and the Obscure.
I’ll probably miss quite a few myself so if you know of any that you really want to tell the world about or any stories from previous years, just leave a comment or send me a message and if its interesting, funny or just plain strange I will add it to my list… So we start with UK Festivals
