East Village Radio: Enter Strummerville Campfire

evr

Excerpt:

‘For those who don’t know, Strummerville is a registered charity that aims to keep Joe’s memory alive. Strummerville offers support, resources and performance opportunities to artists who might not normally have such access, among them the extremely talented band, the Riff Raff. Here’s their insider’s Glastonbury journal…

The festival started early for us this year; we, the Riff Raff, arrived on site with the Joe Strummer New Music Foundation (www.strummerville.com) on a (happy) Monday. With the sun beating down on our backs, we walked the two miles from the car park (carrying equipment) to the Joe Strummer field located in the opposite corner of the festival. For us, the first few days before the public arrives were spent constructing the stage and camp area around the Strummerville field, drinking copious amounts of local cider and eating good food.”

NME: The Drums play intimate Glastonbury show at Strummerville

the-drums-glasto-campfire

Excerpt:

“The Drums played an intimate campfire show in the early hours of this morning (June 27) in the Strummerville area of Glastonbury.

The New York four-piece played their set on the area’s tiny bunting-laden stage, playing through small amps in front of a campfire and a few hundred festival-goers.

The timing of the set had been kept secret with the area largely unmarked, lending a sense of surprise to the show.”

I Blame Coco blog post: Coco Is The Toast Of Glastonbury

i-blame-coco

Excerpt:

“What a weekend Coco had at Glastonbury, playing three shows in one day on Saturday!

It all started in the scenic surroundings of the Park Stage, which Coco opened on the second day of the festival and provided the perfect wake up call and cure for those with hangovers.

That was followed by an acoustic show at the chill and charge tent before Coco followed The Drums with an intimate set at Strummerville round a campfire just after midnight – the perfect end to the perfect day.

Look out for a blog from Coco about the festival coming soon…”

Virgin: Top 40 Glastonbury Tips

Strummerville Campfire Tip #2

Excerpt:

“Yes, it’s that time of year again when the whole country unites behind a common cause, dresses up in ridiculous outfits, drinks far too much alcohol and gathers together to watch their heroes bring them joy. No, not the World Cup, we’re all too hardened by dozens of disappointments for that – we’re talking about Glastonbury Festival.

This year the biggest festival of them all turns 40 – so what better way to gear up for Glastonbury than to offer 40 top tips for what to do at Worthy Farm this year. Sure, it might take as long to read as it will to get through the legendary Glasto queues, but it will be a lot more fun.”
