//////////// POST BLOOM REPORT//////////

With this summers Bloom Festival just a hazy memory in our even hazier minds, we thought it was about time to let you know just how damn good it was. If you were there, please share with us in this wobbly recollection of naked orgies, strange potions and bestiality with local wildlife (well OK, so that was just us…) and if you missed out, this event rocked!

On an unseasonably hot and sunny weekend (well, to be honest any hot and sunny weather would do) the Bloom was a small but perfectly formed event which took place at Dryham Park near Bristol over the weekend of 10th – 12th August, your favourite post-breakbeat, nu-wave electro masters Chew The Fat hosted The Fat! Arena on the Saturday night, plied the field with Paul’s special homebrew made from Sainsbury’s 2 for 1 mushrooms, banaskins, Sindens’ toe fungus and nutmeg which got the place absolutely mental to the sounds of Evil 9, Sinden, Tayo, The Rogue Element, Boabinga & I.D., Paul ‘Druid’ Arnold and Kid Blue, some say this has been our best line up yet with the music kicking from the word go but we think our best is still to come (read on…)

Festival virgins Baobinga & I.D. (OK, less of the ‘festival’ maybe) were so touched by the experience they wrote a short piece about it here:
