Mount Fest 2017

This weekend (Saturday 1st July) we are hosting Mount Fest 2017 at Bugsboarding. There will be boarding, biking, bands, art and more.

The Convicts are still on the run from the prison of the 9-5 and return with their theatrical brand of Folk-Punk-Ska so throw down your shackles and dance to their raucous radical rhythm.

King Tuts Revenge (acoustic), is the low fat version of Somerset ska band ‘King Tut’s Revenge’. This fusion of upbeat ska, smooth reggae vocals and a flourish of folk will leave a great taste in your ears.

ShireFunk are an audio explosion kicking normality in the face with fat funky beats and ill lyrics! Reprahzentin UK HipHop in the North West it’s ShireFunk baby!

Nina Ann/Hitch hiking USA is a hippie singer-songwriter of the world on a mission: to make the people around her happier. She will share with you the beauty she has found in herself so that your soul can shine even stronger reflecting her everyday pilgrimage to an unknown place that one day will be called ‘home’.
