Festival Review: Nova Rock 2019 Day 3

When we entered the Pannonia Fields for the third day, there were definitely less people around than the previous days. I think the heat, mixed with lots of alcohol was finally taking its toll on the festival-goers. Our first stop was at the Red stage for To the Rats and Wolves. Opening with “Cheap Love” … Continue reading Festival Review: Nova Rock 2019 Day 3

Festival Review: Nova Rock 2019 Day 2

Semi reluctantly we dragged ourselves away from our fan-cooled apartment and headed back to Nova Rock for the first band of the day, Our Last Night. However, before we begin day 2, I am going to reiterate my previous statement about us English folk not coping with heat too well. Until way later into the … Continue reading Festival Review: Nova Rock 2019 Day 2

Festival Review: Nova Rock 2019 Day 1

Nova Rock 2019 was definitely an experience to be remembered! Last year we had heavy rain showers on the first day. This year we had blistering 35°C heat!

Gig Review: Set It Off / Vukovi / Bearings – Manchester O2 Academy 3 (16th April 2019)

Feeling very old in comparison to the crowd surrounding us, the first band of the night, Bearings, made their way onto the stage. Looking very cramped, the 5-piece band from Canada definitely needed a bigger stage! The crowd were joining in and clapping along straight away and by their reaction, Bearings have some new fans in … Continue reading Gig Review: Set It Off / Vukovi / Bearings – Manchester O2 Academy 3 (16th April 2019)

Gig Review: Mayday Parade / The Wonder Years / Movements / Pronoun – O2 Academy, Leeds (20th February 2019)

The only problem with 6pm doors at gigs is that it’s very rare that many people manage to get there in time. Pronoun were the first band of the night to take stage and were not deterred by the amount of people in the venue. Wearing contrasting overalls, with lead singer Alyse Vellturo standing out … Continue reading Gig Review: Mayday Parade / The Wonder Years / Movements / Pronoun – O2 Academy, Leeds (20th February 2019)
