The Thrill of Playing Live!

Hi and welcome along to Music2Tattoos! Today I want to talk about the thrill of playing music to a live audience!

Having been away on holiday with my wife, daughter and Rocket the Dog for a few days I’ve had chance to take in the feelings of playing at my first large live festival and I have to say that I want more! As per one of my previous posts (click here) the band I’m in – The Rocket Dogs – played at The Willow Festival in our home town of Peterborough recently and it was just an incredible experience.

It’s not just playing a big festival that can get me pumped up, as a covers band we play local pubs and clubs as well and the atmosphere in some of those places can be electric. Seeing people dancing, jumping about and singing along to songs that you are playing is such an inspiring feeling.

I can walk off having played for 3 hours, be completely exhausted and yet still be bouncing because of the reaction we have got from the crowd. Having people come up to afterwards and congratulate you or just want to talk to you and tell you what a great performance it was has got to be one of the best feeelings in the world!

 

Surely this can’t just be me? Can it? If you get a massive thrill from playing live – no matter what type of music you play – drop me a comment and let me know how it feels to you. Click on the little speech bubble to the top right of this post and let me know your thoughts.

The Willow Festival – Peterborough

Hi All and Welcome to another post from Music2Tattoos! Today I wanted to introduce you to The Willow Festival in Peterborough, UK.

The Willow Festival is one of europes biggest F!ree music festivals with over 50,000 people attending over the 3 day weekend last year. This years festival is on the weekend of 12th – 14th July! It’s not a festival for big name bands and celebrities; The Willow Festival focuses on unsigned bands from around europe – show casing some awesome talent.

There is plenty of opportunity to see all sorts of bands as there are at least 3 stages (2 outdoor) and last year there were 123 bands on over the weekend. Just in case you get bored there are also the usual extras such as fairground rides, food stands, an alternative shopping village and street entertainers.

To ensure an entertaining mix of bands there are some of the top tribute acts from around the UK on the bill as well as some local cover bands to add some fun to the proceedings!

Just like any good festival you can also camp on site if you want to although places are limited so get in quick. You can get anything from a day pass to a weekend pass, head to the website now for more information.

You can find more details out about all of the fun and entertainment at the willow festival by visitng their website:

www.thewillowfestival.org.uk

They are also on Facebook and Twitter so you can keep up with all of the infomation on there as well!

If you are around Peterborough between July 12th – 14th this year I highly recommend you head down to the Embankment and join in the fun!

Until Next Time

Remember to Live Life and Have Fun!
