DEF GOLDBLUM are bringing all the energy to The Maze this weekend. And they’re one of those bands, that have such a good description – both of their mission, and of their genre, it’s actually way better for me to share that, than attempt to fluff it myself. BOOM – “ three skinheads & one MC find themselves on a mission to save the soul of rap metal. Not even a little bit Indie Pop. Very Metal, very Rap. People leave the room when we play. Don’t say you weren’t warned.”

Sounds ace, right?

Support acts tba.

OOSH – can you believe a bloody year has passed since Dot to Dot? Us neither. We were just thinking about this beaut festival last week actually as we recorded THIS podcast and some of the pop gems we heard that day.

WELL – it’s back. And ready to blow your beautiful little mind with a vast array of Nottingham awesomeness. Well over 130 (yes, 130!!) local artists playing amongst some of the new music big boys, and all in one glorious day. Across the genres. Across both sides of town. Across both sides of sober and ‘just one more drink, honest’. You’ve got an entire Bank Holiday Monday to recover. So go support your local favs, have a bev or nine, and enjoy. You deserve it, b.
