Pictures from Brownhills Music Festival 2013

Well, the day came and despite very poor weather and a wind that would strip the paint from a Vauxhall, at the Brownhills Music Festival the music was great, the beer was fine and everyone seemed to have a good time. There were some technical issues, and I think scheduling was a little too tight, as some acts didn’t get to play which was sad, but Paul Green put in a huge amount of work and the first  Music Festival for decades was, I think,  a success.

I only got up for an hour or so, but I did enjoy the rice and fish, and was disappointed to miss the curry goat. Ale, music and good friends, what more can you ask?

Best wishes and thank to Paul, and best of luck in his next venture.

    Well done to Paul and others involved. Saw some great local acts, with my favourites being ‘The Grade’. Wasn’t too impressed with the inside toilets – ladies, if you really must hover, please try to improve your aim!

    I was very impressed with the professsionalism and slick setup: food and beer were good and well priced too. I really liked the first band on, “Skirred”, but a lot of people may have missed them as it was still quite quiet then.

    Well done to Paul and the team.

        Oops. Sorry. Knew I shouldn’t have relied on my memory after several pints 🙂

        Any plans to come back south of the border?
