Last weekend's Riverside Festival was an an event of 2 halves; Saturday...weather fine and about 5000 people in / Sunday....it p***ed it down virtually all day and under 500 peeps. However the music on BOTH days was stunning.
On the Truck Store / Rapture Stage that I was running I especially enjoyed Peerless Pirates, Franc Cinelli, Don Gallardo (making it part of his UK tour) Loud Mountains (who just get better and better) Narratones, The Great Western Tears, Xander and The Keys, The August List and The Knights of Mentis.
It's a belting event with a very laid back atmosphere and...it's 100% free. You should go next year...really, you should. But I will NEVER sleep on the stage again!!
Previous TunA artist Luke Tuchsherer, who played on the Saturday and who also I greatly enjoyed, has a Pledge Music campaign to help fund his second album. If you'd like to find out more click here.
Cult roots band Groanbox have a new, self-titled album out and today's TunA is a track from it.
See you on Sunday
PS - there will be video footage of Narratones and Xander & The Keys next week.
