The Wood Burning Savages

Over the next few weeks, music lovers across the country will be dusting down their wellies, power-hosing their mud-encrusted tents and, if they’re smart, laminating those all-important stage times in preparation for the return of festival season.

It has been three long years since we’ve last enjoyed these events sans restrictions, and now, after enduring a worrying period of uncertainty and inactivity, performers and promoters alike are getting ready to turn those amps back up to 11 in a bid to blow the wee straw fedoras off of the collective craniums of punters across the province and beyond.
