A Blast From The Past To Get You Up Dancing: Penn Festival

I’m EXCITED.

You might have noticed that after my ‘why family festivals are fab‘ post and ‘what to wear to a family festival‘.

It’s quite likely I could become a bit of a festival bore!  Nah, you love me anyway don’t you?

(If you are actually loving it, make sure you keep an eye on the sidebar  of my blog or Facebook page over the weekend: I’m going to be posting loads of photos and hopefully a couple of funny videos!)

It’s potentially a bit daft getting excited about camping with two young kids in the rain and dealing with big melt downs when I really want to be listening to some music.  However, I’m going to chill, not worry about getting wet/cold (I have hot water bottles!), and hope that the music will heal all ills!  (Plus I have a big box of wine, which will work if nothing else does!).

So I thought I’d share with you some of the line up for this weekend’s Penn Festival (BTW Friday night is FREE – so come on down!).

I bet it’s going to bring back some memories and get you jigging this wet friday morning!

 

First off the fabulous ‘Soul to Soul’ (I could never work out how many were dancers and how many were actually singing in this video!)

 

SNAP! were apparently brilliant and I’m really looking forward to seeing them:

 

Hows about a bit of SKA from The Beat (Curly Headed Boy is going to love these guys)?

 

A classic is Rozalla’s ‘Everybody’s free’

 

Or a bit more chilled is ‘The real thing’

 

And not one could forget ‘Altered Images’

 

Check out Penn’s Facebook page to see some of the other bands who might be less well known, but sound fab.

 

Are you going too?  I’d love to hear from you if you are; say hi on twitter!

    1. In the end I only saw Rozalla and Snap and listened to the Real Thing from a distance @nickie – but OMG they were amazing. Such a shame but I had to miss The Beat and Altered Images as we had to come home (blog post about the festival on the way!.

I love hearing what people think about my posts!
