Sundae bloody Sundae
Or, rather, Sundae lovely Sundae. To go some way towards filling that aching void left by the absence of Glastonbury this year, I'm off to the Summer Sundae festival in mid August.
Held in and around Leicester's De Montford Hall, it's a very small low-key affair - there are only 5000 tickets, and the bands are mainly of the up-and-coming variety, though the headliners have been announced as Elbow, Belle & Sebastian and The Buzzcocks. Plus there's a real ale tent and proper plumbed-in toilets, and at just £65 plus £1 per tent if you order before 31st March (it's £10 more thereafter) it certainly won't break the bank - incredibly good for a three day festival (yes, it's not just confined to the Sunday).
Just when you thought you'd get away without a festival report this summer... I won't be the only blogger in attendance, either, with both Kenny and Simon having bought their tickets and the author of Delete As Appropriate looking likely to get one.
