Camp Bestival 2014

I have to admit that I came pretty late to the family festival thing. I blame having three kids in three years and running on empty for more more years than I care to remember, but now that I'm in the midst of a teenage parenting haze I really look forward to the summer festival season. It's quickly become our summer focus and this year we are really excited to be heading to Camp Bestival as official bloggers.

Camp Bestival Fun

We LOVED Camp Bestival last year but this year is going to blow the house down. The line up is epic. Well it is for me, because Johnny Marr is playing and although I've seen Morrissey live loads of times, I've never seen Johnny. 
Although, he's all I need to make this weekend legendary, there's also Basement Jaxx, De La Soul and Sinead O'Connor to look forward to!

Over in the DJ area I'll be regressing back to my pre The Smiths love with Boy George rocking out a set. On top of that there's shed loads to keep kids of all ages entertained. From Mr Tumble to Horrible Histories and everything in between, including a new dedicated teen area (Biba will be reporting live from there).

Camp Bestival Line Up

A limited number of day tickets are available but for the true Camp Bestival experience you really need to rock up with your kids, your tent, your sleeping bags and your party hat firmly in place.

Camp Bestival, Thursday 31st July to Sunday 3rd August, Lulworth Castle Dorset.

Be there, or lose out....

The Queen Is Dead : 28 Today

Released 28 years ago today, simply one of the best albums of all times... The Queen Is Dead.

With two of my all time favourite Smiths tracks, 'I Know It's Over' and 'Never Had No One Ever' it's as relevant today as it was back in 1986 and it remains on regular iPod play for me.

I bought this original hand typed The Queen Is Dead press release about 15 years ago but it's the first time I've shared it online. It's pretty awesome, one of the prized pieces in my Smiths collection.

Don't trust anyone who doesn't like The Smiths

I've decided that this is the motto that I'm going to live and die by...

Don't trust anyone who doesn't like The Smiths
