Festival Days

Hello my name is Ellie. I'm going to be writing a weekly blog about my life, beauty products and tips. I hope you will enjoy reading my blog.

On Saturday the 19th of July I went to the Godney Gathering with my friend. What is the Godney Gathering you may ask? Well it is a mini festival that happens a few weeks after Glastonbury festival. Unfortunately I couldn't go to Glastonbury this year so I was very pleased to be able to go to Godney!

The first band we saw were called Land Of The Giants. They are a delightful blend of indie, reggae, hip hop and blues and they sounded very good. Afterwards we got to meet a couple of the band members which was awesome and they were really nice people.

Secondly we saw a band called Crinkle Cuts. Again they sounded great with a good mixture of tantric funk, smooth reggae and new-wave Latin ska. All 7 band members each had great stage presence and put on a good performance.

The next band we saw were Finches Fly. Aged only 16 these guys were very good!

The fourth band were Shoot The Moon. Okay okay I'll try not to go onto too much about these because I could honestly just write a whole blog just about them but I will just cover the basics. They are an 8-piece ska, rock and swing band sounding great live. Each member brought something great to the performance and had great energy on stage. We met them after and they were the friendliest band I've met, so genuine and happy that you had enjoyed their show. I bought a Shoot The Moon T-shirt and two of their cds and I've had both albums on repeat ever since! We got pictures with two of the band members, Joe and James, both lovely people.
I'm going to stop myself now before I bore you all and move onto the last band we saw

Reef. Now if any of you know who Reef are then you will know they are amazing. Gary Stringer, the lead singer, is so talented and they are just such a great band and really get the crowd going. Was a privilege to see them.
