Attila's Gigs/News August 2008
ATTILA THE STOCKBROKERhttp://www.attilathestockbroker.com
Hi everyone -
Firstly, cheers to everyone who came to our Glastonwick Festival, by universal acclaim the best one ever! Saturday sold out, Fri & Sun were very well attended and the beer ran out (but we had some back ups of course!) Just to let you know - next year we revert to the first weekend in June, 5-7.
And no sooner does one beer festival end than it’s time for another one! This coming weekend (Sat/Sun 2-3 Aug) I’m running our second annual Belgian Beer Festival at the wonderful Duke of Wellington in Shoreham. 9 bands/singer-songwriters over 2 days including my band Barnstormer and Contingent – all details below.
Attila and Roy at the Welly present our second annual
Talking of festivals I’m doing more this year than ever before and am at three more in August: see below. My new book of poems ‘My Poetic Licence’ is out and selling well and you can read all about it/buy it here
Have a great summer everyone!
