Winterstorm Day Three – After The Storm

All new to 2018 is the inclusion of After The Storm, an additional day that lets us keep enjoying the music but in a more relaxed state. A short day with only three bands all stripped bare(not clothing) and all seated in the smaller hall. It worked out to be the perfect finale to the weekend for those still feeling a bit rough after the overindulgence but not wanting to let go of the music or weekend just yet. First up was Terry Brock, the man with the voice and the front man for his solo career, Roth/Brock, Strangeways and one of my all time favourites Giant. Terry had played a full set the previous day but I missed that due to a clash and...

Winterstorm 2018 day 2

  Winterstorm 2018 day 2 Waking up much fresher than day two last year( I even managed breakfast) I head out on the short walk from my hotel along the beach towards the venue in glorious sunshine. My head is clear and I am ready for another full day of music. Everyday Heroes were first up but we did get back to last years issues as we get a fire alarm and everyone is turfed out on the streets. After waiting on the fire brigade to give us the all clear everyone gathers round and catches up on what an amazing day yesterday was. One of the best things about this festival is how friendly everyone is. I may already know a big chunk of the...

Winterstorm 2018 Day One

  Winterstorm 2018 Day One My final thoughts leaving Winterstorm last year as I trudged through the snow was they are not going to top this. That was my first year attending and the whole weekend blew me away. From the staff who are all volunteers, the amazing location, the like clockwork organisation down to the bands it left a lasting impression and came out top as my favourite festival of the year. The thoughts that it could not be beaten faded as soon as the line up to 2018 was announced and I knew in an instant I would be back in this beautiful town again…so would it rate as highly as last year? I did not make it for first...
