WIN / Weekend and camping tickets to Lodestar Festival 2013

 
By on Thursday, 18th July 2013 at 11:00 am
 

Two weeks ago we previewed this year’s Lodestar Festival, featuring headliners Dragonette (pictured at top), Ryan Keen and The Joy Formidable. And as previously promised, we’ve got a Lodestar-flavoured competition for you!

The organisers of Lodestar have kindly given us a pair of weekend festival passes, including camping, to give away to a lucky TGTF reader and his/her guest. Want to win? Enter in the form below, taking good care to include your real first name and surname and your email address. Then answer this question: in what year did the first Lodestar Festival take place? (Hint: Find this out on the festival’s About page.) Get your entries in by noon British time on Thursday the 25th of July. We’ll then choose a winner from all the correct entries received. Good luck! Please note: this contest is open to UK residents only, and duplicate entries will be discarded.

If you’d rather not chance it and would like to buy tickets to the festival, the last of the mid-bird tickets are available at £64, but probably not for that much longer.

This contest is now closed and the winner will be contacted by email soon.

 

Preview: Lodestar Festival 2013

 
By on Friday, 5th July 2013 at 5:30 pm
 

In terms of summer music festivals, Cambridge was previously best known as the locale for the Cambridge Folk Festival. Not anymore, it shouldn’t. It’s very odd but this was the first time we’ve been contacted about Lodestar Festival, taking place just 15 minutes outside Cambridge city centre. This year’s event takes place 30 August to 1 September, and in its family friendly programming, it could very well be the South’s answer to Deer Shed Festival (Well, I’ll have to consult Martin about this, obviously…) We’ll also be running a competition related to the event in the coming weeks here on TGTF so…

But for now, let’s concentrate on what we do best, the music, shall we? The headliners for this year’s Lodestar are brilliant: Friday will see rising South Devon singer/songwriter Ryan Keen, Saturday’s festivities will star our good friends The Joy Formidable, with Ritzy Bryan holding court as shown in the header pic and Canada’s Dragonette will close out the festival by getting bodies bumping with their brand of dance funk.

However, just watching music is not just the only focus of Lodestar. Fancy bringing out your inner Gloria Estefan? The Pan-Jam workshop will allow you to try out steel drums, the instrument that brings calypso and reggae music their distinctive sound; other workshops are yet to be announced. Did our Oxford mates Stornoway ever make you curious about the sport of zorbing? You can do that at Lodestar, along with archery and power kiting. Comedy and dance troupe performances are also scheduled.

Adult mid-bird tickets are still available for £64 for all 3 days, with only £5 extra for your tent or caravan. Comparable mid-bird tickets for 15 to 17s are £56 for 3 days; children 14 or younger are free. For more information on tickets, visit the official Lodestar Festival Web site.

 

Preview: Jersey Live 2013

Words by Hannah Saul

When late August draws upon the sunny Channel Island of Jersey, the sound of great music will begin to play and hundreds of locals, and music lovers will flock to see some of the best acts that Jersey Live music festival has ever seen.

Jersey Live 2013 is gearing up to celebrate a summer of brilliant musical talent. Welcoming artists such as The 1975, Wolf People and Bastille. Not forgetting to mention the king of Acid House, Saturday night headliner Fatboy Slim, and Elliot John Gleave, better known as Example (pictured at top), who will be headlining Sunday night.

Having appeared at the festival back in 2007, The Enemy are amongst many of the impressive talents that have been arranged to feature at this festival, which is still only just finding its feet. However, for such a small festival, with a promising future, just looking down the line up gets me stoked. It just gets better and better the more you look. With the likes of The Cribs, and sweetheart Nina Nesbitt who John interviewed at this year’s Great Escape, there is certainly something for everyone, no matter what your music taste.

The most exciting new of all, comes in the form that for the first time ever, camping will be made available. The license for camping has now turned what could be described as one big uninterrupted concert, into a thriving music festival. However, there are big rules on what can and can’t be done. These come in the form of the obvious and also the unexpected. One of the more unconventional items on the do’s and don’t is the idea that alcohol is not permitted on site. Yes, I have to agree, that as it is the first year of camping, they may not want the hassle. But compared to other larger music events, being able to drink is normally taken for granted. But don’t you worry, there will be a bar made available to those who fancy an ice-cold cider or beer.

Although some people may wish to stay in the comfort of a hotel, it is not all that bad. There are some great local hotels and inns with a coach service to the festival grounds. There are plenty of great bars and pubs in the town center for any party animals looking to make the most of their night. But above all, the weather is normally great at the end of August. So pack some factor 15 and head on down. What more could you ask for than sun, beer and music?

Overall, what can I say? Get your tickets now! At £92 for a simple weekend ticket (not including camping) and £30 extra to camp, this is promising to be one of the best music events that the Channel Islands have ever seen! More information about Jersey Live tickets is this way.
