Splendour 2013 - Wollaton Park, Nottingham Preview


Splendour 2013, as festivals go, could be said to be a little wet behind the ears but in past years they have managed to get the likes of Blondie, Katie B, Dizzie Rascal and Feeder on their line-ups, and it's not just about the music either. Splendour also boasts a Comedy Stage and promotes families attending by offering children free entry because let's face it, in today's cash-strapped climate, 'free' is not only the magic number but is now the magic word. There's also a kids area and a fun fair so it's a very family friendly festival. 

Splendour 2013 - Nottingham Preview

This last year has been somewhat of a big one for some of Nottingham's favourites, with the success of Jake Bugg and Dog Is Dead on the music scene, and Carl Froch getting his revenge in another great battle against Mikkel Kessler. Finally, with the nation feeling very patriotic thanks to the Olympics and Paralympics, Nottingham's very own double amputee Richard Whitehead wins a gold medal. 

The Festival opens its gates at 12 noon with the first bands scheduled for 1 pm. Next, the tickets; nice and easy prices are frozen and are the same as last year. Tickets are priced at £37.50 or £27.50 (adult Citycard holders), an 11-17 year old ticket is priced at £27.50 or £15 for Citycard, and, finally, keeping up with the family friendly ethos, all children under 10s have free entry.

Stocking Fillers: Best Christmas Songs of 2012

 

Many consider Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' the last true Christmas song to be released; it's hard to believe that was back in 1994! Since then, there's been a sputtering of jovial Christmas releases, but nothing that seems to stand the test of time. 2012 has actually delivered a handful of relatively acceptable additions - both cover of classic tracks and original tracks. Here are a few of the tracks you might be hearing more of over Christmas.
