SORRY: THIS FESTIVAL APPEARANCE IS NO LONGER HAPPENING FOR TURIN BRAKES. INSTEAD, THEY’RE PLAYING HARVEST AT JIMMY’S. (update 7 June 2011)
More late Summer festival goodness from Turin Brakes. They will NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT be playing a Headstock,
according even though Clash Music SAID they would (IT’S A LIE! IT’S A LIE!)… Still, it’s a nice non-profit festival:
A small village near Nottingham, Newstead was almost completely dependent on a nearby coal mine to provide employment.
Its closure in 1987 left the area in crisis. Since then, the community have banded together in an attempt to provide a future for the village of Newstead.
Amongst the measures they have tried is a not for profit music festival. A way to bring the community together, Headstock was set up last summer and enjoyed a tremendously successful first instalment.
Returning for another weekend of music, Headstock 2011 comes as the village enjoys a boost. BBC One are filming a documentary on the area, focussing on their efforts to give Newstead a future.
Taking place between September 9th – 11th, Headstock 2011 will be headlined by Echo & The Bunnymen.
Turin Brakes are NOT playing the festival, but The High Llamas (Rob’s awesome band BUT WITHOUT ROB!!) will be playing
as well. Tickets are quite reasonably priced: early bird £50 adult full weekend, teen 12-17 £27, under 12s free. More info HERE.
