Having developed the biggest Worcester Music Festival hangover imaginable, I’m finding the editors notes an arduous task this month. Its difficult to know where to start as we reflect on the mad month of August.
In this issue we take a look back at Nozstock, Loaded, Green Man, Malvern Rocks & Bulldog Bash with fond if not somewhat blurred memories.
The bank holiday weekend found Slap involved in the best WMF to date. The place was buzzing as hundreds of original acts rolled into town to entertain and enjoy the festival. Attendances surpassed expectation with many venues reporting record breaking figures. The Slap stage on the Sunday at Cafe Bliss and the Arts Workshop was no exception. All the acts, handpicked by ourselves, played to a bursting garden in the afternoon followed by a raucous evening session in the theatre downstairs. We will be bringing you all the highlights of ‘Super Slap Sunday’ in our next issue. It was heart warming to see so many people of all ages enjoying the ‘free’ music, art, workshops, activities and performances on offer throughout the City over four great days. A massive Slap thank you goes out to the WMF committee and all of its hard working volunteers including stewards, sound engineers, money raisers and promoters as well as over 300 acts who performed for free to raise money for this years beneficiaries New Hope.
