Something else Somewhere else

Something – Else, Somewhere Else – Photo Gallery

People often ask me why I would want to go and stand in a muddy field to watch bands that most people have never heard of.

There are many many reasons but the most obvious one is because of the people you meet.  These are people with whom you share an interest, they are wonderful, weird, wacky and sometimes downright eccentric, but they all share at least two traits.  They love music and they really know how to have a good time. 🙂

Check out a few photographs of some of the people attending a little grassroots festival I went to over the weekend.  Three days of brilliant music, great people and reasonably priced food and drink for £40 (including camping).  There is nothing quite like it.

If you are interested in this festival or any of its sister festivals you can find information here.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
