SPLENDOUR 2014 – A Review In Pictures

Splendour 2014 was quite an event to be part of. We try not to get distracted from the music here at Nusic (nice little rhyme for you there), but, it was bloody impossible to ignore the ridiculous downpours of rain that we experienced. Despite the fact we were soaked to the core, we still had an awesome time, and the thirteen Notts acts that performed at this year’s Splendour did us very proud. Let’s have a bit of a visual lookback at the day (the ducks are out of sight)…

Well, there you have it. It’s done and dusted for another year. Well, I say dusted, the rain would have bloody washed away the dust… okay I’ll stop with the bad jokes now.

Notts musicians, you did Nottingham proud. Big up, and we’ll see you next year!

Yours in Love of New Music,
