Summer of Music

Back in the 1970's, so the story goes, hippies heading home after celebrating the summer Solstice at Stonehenge, stopped off at Worthy Farm near Pilton in Somerset lured by a rumour of live music and free milk.  And thus the Glastonbury Festival began.  I'm sure there's more to it than that but the festival is indeed held most years just after the summer Solstice.   There are other festivals but Glastonbury is the biggie which launches the main summer music festivals up and down the UK.

Over the years the festivals have expanded beyond live music to focus on food, cars, name it!  We went to our first festival last summer.  Three days of camping in a cramped field but we loved it and the music and the whole atmosphere.  This page was inspired by all the live music to come and the tabs list some of the bigger events.  There are many, many to choose from.  Its always interesting to see how you feel about projects once they're completed.  Some really grow on you, others are a bit meh.  With this, I can see how I could improve it and make it less cluttered but it was a spur of the moment page, made while listening to a mix of Groove Armada, Sting and re-runs of Hancock's Half Hour.  Eclectic, no?  And so for all it's faults, I have posted it here and already it's beginning to grow on me....
