Icebreaker Festival

The end of January saw Icebreaker come back as the South Coast’s biggest unsigned band festival. Offering a huge array of talent, from all across the UK, and packing it into a small geographic area means you don’t have far to walk to see great bands over the 2 days. Covering just two streets in Southsea and now in its 7th year, I went along to support local musicians as well as unsigned bands from near and far. At £12 a ticket, the value is fantastic for such talented musicians – you’d normally pay that just to see one act on their own!

Tom Bryan – Victorious

Having Victorious fever and thinking about what musicians are playing this wknd it got me thinking about Tom Bryan who kind of blew me away at the Southsea Folk Awards. He came along and played a half-hour set during the break. Out of all the people that were there watching him, nearly half of the crowd came to me after to ask who he was and how incredible he was to watch!

Charlotte Cornelius

Heading to Victorious this Bank Holiday weekend? Don’t forget to explore Market Way and check out some wonderful local businesses before heading to the Common Stage to party the night away! This year you’ll find Charlotte Cornelius Jewellery tucked away amongst the many stores; stand 19.

Festival Wellbeing Tips

Let’s face it if you’re larging it up at a festival – you’re more than likely going to be pretty haggard the next day – unless you’re sensible & don’t drink, gasp!  As much as I would like to pretend I am an angelic little being, I love a ‘few drinks’ every now & then as much as the next person. 

So, without sounding like your Mum, here are my top tips on going to a festival & still feeling fabulous… or at least preserving a shred of your health & wellbeing!
