Sucking Lemons TV: Villagers Interview.

Earlier this year we had the pleasure of catching up with Connor O’ Brien of Mercury nominated Villagers immediately after his presence graced the stage in Nottingham at Dot to Dot festival. This was the first time we had seen Villagers perform and were blown away by a passionate display to a small crowd in the Bodega Social.

Lemon Sessions: The Cads

With all members of The Cads now embarking upon new lifestyles attending different Universities across the UK, you can’t help but raise the eyebrow as the bands productivity may well fall short of par.  However despite this bothersome hindrance, the enthusiasm of the band will no doubt pull through, as they soon plan to record (in the words of bassist Nathan Garrity) “a special song” alongside a possible March tour. The Cads however still stand firm; with flourishing work over the summer setting them up nicely for future plans, and frequent gigs including a German tour with Darwin Deez has seen their fan-base rise undoubtably.

We were lucky to catch up with the Suffolk boys in Ipswich for our ‘Lemon Sessions’ where all 5 members of The Cads performed both ‘Lanterns’ and ‘Blueprint’ acoustically. Enjoy.

Harvest at Jimmy’s Farm. 7/10.

In just its second year up and running, Harvest at Jimmy’s Farm welcomes 20,000 people over the course of two days. The festival, combining both food and music to an equal measure plays host to mainly families generating an acute ‘friendly festival’ vibe.

With just a few recognisable names to grace the ‘Village Green’ stage, (located central in the festival site) the music side of the festival is nothing to write home about, however the intimate lay out of the festival is what gives it its air of excitement, and that’s exactly Jimmy’s intentions as he previously stated, “we wanted to make the festival feel more like a village fete”. An aspect of this is the unusual set-up that flaunts some of the best chefs in the business. The ‘Farmhouse Kitchen’ is a stage that showcases live cookery on stage, along with this there are many more exciting attributes to this festival to wet your appetite including, ‘Jamie Oliver’s Fabulous Feasts’, Jimmy’s Farm Restaurant, and the monkey shoulder tree-house which delivers great cocktails throughout the day.

Food and music aside, there’s still an enormous amount of fun to be had for the kids. A whole area at the tail end of the Festival is dedicated to the little ones, which is what makes this festival suitable for all ages.

Take a look at our video round up to discover some of the wonders of the festival…
