It’s late summer bank holiday weekend in the UK, noted in the cultural calendar as not only the conclusion of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe but also for two big music festivals – Reading and Leeds – where thousands of music fans congregate over three days to enjoy some terrific live sounds.
If you can’t get to Reading or Leeds this weekend (or even if you can), you can also enjoy some terrific sounds with this week’s episode of The Friday Rock Show with Ewan Spence which I had the great pleasure of presenting on Ewan’s behalf while he continued presenting and producing The Edinburgh Fringe Show podcasts.

This is the second time I’ve presented Ewan’s show – the first time was in March 2007 – thanks again, Ewan, it was a blast!
There is a third festival which is the Nottinghill carnival event. This is a great festival on that same weekend. A feast for a photographer and 2.5 days of vibrant music with steel bands, calypso bands, reggae bands, sound systems and much more. Next, week need an Autumn festival on the 21st September each year, with a strict dress code of golden brown and green.
