Anyone planning a trip to any of the Festivals in August?
I've not really given August much thought. Whats on?
Well I did go and have a nice headbang at the Highland Fire folk metal festival on Saturday. It was a great night! :D
I'm up at the end of the month but haven't made much plans for the festival. Only there for a day or two before I head to Loch Ossian.

And how was it Danny? Do you perform or just drink and chill?
It was great - play in a band called The seventh sons, missed the Friday but made up for it on saturday - bed about 6am after an extended jam session, the band run down is here:
