We've seen more and more small festivals peeping their heads out amongst the giants in recent years and they're bloody great fun. We took a trip to Leeds a few weeks ago for LAL 2013. This weekend a few smaller ones are taking place and it truly is beginning to feel like Summer is upon us. Dot to Dot in Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham. In Bradford though, Threadfest is returning for its second year of fun and frolics. Taking place this bank holiday weekend, 24-26th of May, and for all of you short on pennies as the end of the month looms, it's absolutely free. Not only is it free but the line-up is damn good. Festivals like this are a damn good way to not break the bank and also to open your eyes to a whole new world of music and bands.
The full line-up can me found over on the official site but bands I'd recommend you check out would be Hawk Eyes, Blacklisters, Blood Sport, Illusory Centre, and Super Luxury. But there's a host of others playing so if you're in the area get yoruself over there this weekend and have yourself some fun!
