Rebellion 2018 – Thank You

Rebellion is one of my favourite all ages indoor festival with 7 stages (including the Rebellion Introducing Stage), over 350 bands, art exhibition and tatooist it caters for everyone. But what makes this festival truly special is the Rebellion team/family that runs it and the people that come.

For me it’s the perfect place to meet up with friends from all over the world, listen to good music and make some new friends.

Here some pics of the many many people I met.

BRDCST at Ancienne Belgique, Brussels April 2018

Photo taken by Simon Balaam.

BRDCST 2018 is a 5 day indoor festival in Brussels packed with interviews, concerts and films. Saturday the 7th April was curated by the Sleaford Mods and we were well chuffed to be asked to play. As you can imagine there was a great line up and we absolutely loved it.

Big thanks to the Sleaford Mods & Steve Underwood for asking us, thank you AB team for looking after us and everyone that came to see us.
