Godiva Festival Friday, 5th July 2019

Godiva Festival is Coventry’s very own home-grown music festival that’s held annually in the War Memorial Park. It can cater for up to 150,000 people, although the expected attendance this year was around half of this, it means there is still growing room for this family-orientated festival in the future. The weather was set to be […]

The Levellers @ 02 Academy, 10th December, 2016

Attempting to get to the o2 Academy for this evenings appointment with The Levellers was harder than expected, a combination of events going on in Birmingham city centre meant that we arrived over an hour after doors opening to find people still queueing to get in.

The Levellers performing ‘Levelling The Land’ + Wonderstuff @ Birmingham Academy, 17th March 2011

Back to the 02 Academy again for what is probably the gig of the week. The Levellers performing ‘Levelling the Land’ plus (in the words of Miles Hunt) ‘special guests’ The Wonderstuff.

The Levellers @ Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall – 1st May 2009

I was not named on the guest-list for tonight’s gig, but after a little explanation about BrumLive a wristband was issued. As I got into the Wulfrun already on stage was a trio, not dissimilar to The Crow Man from Worzel Gummidge. They were whipping the crowd up with a sing-a-long sea-shanty song, but as […]
