Summer Sundae 2012 - Friday

This weekend was the Summer Sundae music festival once again.  We love going to this fantastic, local festival each year, so save our pennies specially.  There's always so much music to choose from that as soon as the lineup is confirmed I have a little listen to each artist so I get an idea of what we might like to see.  The weather was much the same as last year, rainy on Friday and very very hot & muggy :)

Each day we get off the bus and walk up to De Montfort Hall via New Walk, a beautiful area in the city...



The venue itself was a little more compact this year, but still fab, we heard so many amazing artists this weekend.  Friday we saw the following artists (click on their name for a link if you're interested) ...

Y Niwl (a fab Welsh band, instrumental American surf guitar of the late 50's)
