FLORAL IMAGE, SHE’S IN PARTIES & BEN AULD

Saturday, June 25th 2022

Chances are that those at Glasto won’t see anything better than tonight’s headliners.

THE MISSION & SALVATION

Thursday, June 23rd 2022

Less than perfect sound but a glorious celebration of 36 years of The Mission.

Keane. Thetford Forest

Wednesday, June 22nd 2022

Seven and a half thousand people have very clearly had a fantastic evening, Keane have absolutely smashed it out of the woods, just like they did the last time that they were here.

William Basinski + Tom Rogerson

Friday, June 17th 2022

SEPULTURA, RAGING SPEEDHORN & CAGE FIGHT

Friday, June 17th 2022

Roger Eno

Saturday, June 11th 2022

Sorry - Wunderhorse

Wednesday, June 8th 2022

The music can be uncomfortable, unsettling, but simultaneously honeyed and sweet. The juxtaposition is what makes it such an engaging act to see and hear.

Neck of The Woods

Friday, June 3rd 2022

... what a marvellous and memorable day it has been? As the song says, ‘We’re just having a good time’. See you next year for more of the same please.

Neck Of The Woods Festival

Monday, May 30th 2022

I really hope this festival returns next year. It was a joy to witness and it proves that there is not only the audience in Norfolk but there's talent too. See you next year, same time, same place.

Dat Brass

Sunday, May 29th 2022

Dat Brass, not bad but it didn’t ignite for Pavlis.

Anna Meredith

Sunday, May 29th 2022

I would not have missed this evening's show for anything. However, twenty four hours on, I cannot help musing on how this was something of an opportunity missed

Yard Act + Nuha Ruby Ra

Sunday, May 29th 2022

The band are tight, every song is performed with surgical precision – it’s proper pop music. It’s got mass appeal and it seems like they as a band have tapped into something.

Levitation Orchestra

Friday, May 27th 2022

Levitation Orchestra's sound is a potent cocktail of uninhibited energy and elegant exploration, bound together by an egality of interwoven

Sean Shibe

Friday, May 27th 2022

Shibe was an absolute gentleman, talking us through each piece, and playing to the wonderfully attentive audience with virtuosic confidence and class.

OTHER HALF, CHURCH GIRLS, APHRA & SUDS

Friday, May 27th 2022

By the time they close with Tiny Head, what could easily have been a disaster has been turned into a massive TRIUMPH.

Peggy Seeger and Calum MacColl

Wednesday, May 25th 2022

..the sparkle in her eye tonight, and the obvious love shared between mother and son, turned this Spiegeltent show into a wholly unforgettable experience.

Rolling Blackouts C.F. + Stella Donnelly

Tuesday, May 24th 2022

It was a good showcase of a few bands from Australia that are doing indie music a little bit diff

Fairytales and Nightingales

Tuesday, May 24th 2022

These three musical artists delivered a venerable tribute to Jenny Lind that was sensitive, informative and beautifully presented

Gesualdo: Cruel Ecstasy – performed by the Exaudi Vocal Ensemble

Monday, May 23rd 2022

The Exaudi Vocal Ensemble took to an otherwise bare stage to perform a selection of Carlo Gesualdo Madrigals that were dripping with melancholy and emotion. Using only the considerable power of their voices, this unamplified concert was the music the acoustics of St Andrews Hall were built for.

Broadside Hacks

Monday, May 23rd 2022

...the audience tonight were treated to something rather special, listening to a fresh generation of musicians discover and revive the songwriting treasures of the past

Grace Petrie

Sunday, May 22nd 2022

Petrie's fierce musical stand for the things that she feels passionate about has triumphantly fired the bellies of another festival audience.

Sō Percussion and Every Step

Thursday, May 19th 2022

James Bay - Kevin Garrett

Wednesday, May 18th 2022

Daniel Pioro and Erland Coope

Wednesday, May 18th 2022

Slowly, very slowly, the sense of something musical emerged, as if the performers were teasingly grappling for out of reach harmony. Only then did Cooper join the party, with delicate, gossamer light touches on the piano. Subsequently, he would play music of sublime beauty, as Daniel Pioro prowled around the performance area, accompanying and complementing faultlessly.

Moor Mother

Wednesday, May 18th 2022

Intelligently structured and intense surmises the music of the evening

Hermeto Pascoal

Sunday, May 15th 2022

CONFIDENCE MAN & MIND ENTERPRISES

Friday, May 13th 2022

What Confidence Man do is some distance from my usual tastes but – as with Self Esteem –the music is different and strange enough to appeal to me whilst being dance-oriented pop enough to appeal to the mainstream and keep this crowd groovin’ like loons.

THE MEFFS, RATS AS BIG AS DOGS, SUPRACELESTIALS, STUDY OF US, NOVEMBER

Wednesday, May 11th 2022

Reef

Monday, May 2nd 2022

...an absolute joy to rock out to new album tracks- they were raw, heavy and full of life (I particularly liked “Best of Me” and Wolfman) and perfectly interspersed between their well-loved classics.

The Nightingales - Rats on Rafts- Ted Chippington

Wednesday, April 27th 2022

What I got was a seamless set list of quite brilliant, and quite brilliantly performed, tunes.

RIDE & BDRMM

Monday, April 25th 2022

Ride are fantastic and this has been one of the best gigs I have seen so far this year.

Max Cooper - Dom IV

Friday, April 22nd 2022

As a performance, it’s difficult to categorise – it slides between gig, clubnight and art show.

SKUNK ANANSIE, MORGANWAY & HOLOCENE

Friday, April 22nd 2022

CARL PALMER’S ELP LEGACY

Saturday, April 16th 2022

This was a fine display of extremely talented musicians playing technically complicated music not just for the sake of showing off their chops but because they enjoy it.

TEENAGE FANCLUB & FRØKEDAL AND FAMILIEN / BLACK WATER COUNTY

Saturday, April 16th 2022

THE LOVELY EGGS, ROB AUTON & THE BUG CLUB

Thursday, April 14th 2022

Bambara

Monday, April 11th 2022

After an explosive delivery of ‘Serafina’, they slip into the operatic closing track on Stray ‘Machete’.

Everything Everything

Monday, April 11th 2022

The Genre-bending band, definitely put on a show which keep your eyes glued to their movements and subconsciously dancing along to their hyper tunes

Rex Orange County

Tuesday, April 5th 2022

The Surrey-born star shows what it takes to keep a crowd mesmerized by catchy tunes with deeper meanings, definitely delivering a night that was ‘10/10’ (Excuse the pun).

Paul Weller

Monday, April 4th 2022

...the Weller obsessives are treated to an array of Weller and Jam tracks of various hits, album tracks and misses from a back catalogue that now spans over the past fifty years going back to those very early Jam days.
