So Lee and his gang have been doing this festival lark since 2006 and this year I went down for the 5th ever LeeFest where the likes of The Futureheads, The King Blues and Jakwob were billed to excite and delight all 2000 attendees of the South Bromley festival.
Serious fun. So good in fact the I clumsily mashed together a little video edit of some of the antics and hijinks.
Such a good day was had by all. The King Blues were a set late and seemed compelled to put on the show of their lives, in fact every band we saw seemed compelled to put on the show of their lives. Fantastic to see so many bands for the first time and to see them absolutely nail it. Mean Poppa Lean were pretty much the definition of a festival highlight.
Smoothly run, but still with some hilarious tell tale signs that this is a festival that knows how to have fun. The security seemed to have prepared dance routines for many of the acts, volleyballs knocked pints out of hands throughout the day, and the youngest got drunk on ridiculous moshing. King Charles became the most overtly middle class rock star I know of by playing his guitar with an iPhone 4.
quite possibly the highlight of the Summer.
see you next year,
