Hello! How was August for you? Worn out yet? Well donít relax to soon, the summer isnít quite over yet...

In this issue we take you back to a few of last months local festival highlights from Gloucester Blues, the Worcester Show, Lakefest, and Old Bush Blues. They may have suffered with inclement weather but it didnít dampen the enthusiasm of the sell out crowds.

We look forward to the month ahead with Bromyard Folk festival and if itís something very different youíre looking for, check out Cheltenham Paint Festival to which our front cover image alludes. Get along to this fabulous free outdoor gallery. Walk around and enjoy the incredible selection on display.

And now down to business... With just a few acts still to confirm the Worcester Music Festival is shaping up to be the best yet! Make sure you keep the 13th-15th of this month free, pick up a festival guide and plan your weekend. Donít forget to pop in to the SLAP night at the Marrs Bar on the 14th where we have our usual eclectic mix of groovy indie, psychedelic rock, grunge punk and quirky dance to whet the appetite, all with the wonderful Vinny Peculiar to chaperon us through the evening.

As before, we want you to get involved, if you see a performance you particularly enjoy at WMF, why not write a short review, take a photo and send it in to us, weíll print as many as possible in the next issue. If you are a keen photographer, this is your chance to try your hand at gig photography, you wonít be short of subject matter and you can enter the annual WMF photo competition. As always weíll publish the top three judged by professionals.

See you around...
