It’s been a pretty amazing weekend. The weather is hot, Wimbledon was incredible and our Festival Director and Folkstock Foundation Managing Director Helen Meissner celebrated her birthday on Saturday (Happy Birthday from all your Folkstock followers!). Next up on the Folkstock calendar is the next workshop event later this month giving tips and advice on studio recordings and making music videos, so be sure to look out for more news on this. We also have the collaborative event with Standon Calling happening on the 4th August, which I will be posting about later this week – as Folkstock will take up the Lordship Stage on the final day of the ‘Runaway From The Circus’ themed festival.
A lot has happened this last week with branding and promoting the September festival, including local author and blogger MummyWhisperer naming Folkstock as one of the most family-friendly festivals in the area, showing just how much community clout Folkstock has. There has also been a lot going on artistically (of the non-musical variety)…
Local artist Amy Pettingill (pictured above) also showed her support for Folkstock Foundation by designing some brilliant artworks, which are being used on the Folkstock Facebook page. Let us know what you think? Tweet me @Katefolkstock
My very creative eldest brother even helped out with designing a new poster for the event on behalf of Today Type and Design, using lots of arty fonts and logos (see pic below). It’s making me excited to see what is going to be making it onto the final ticket designs and posters.
So, if after the excitement and atmosphere of Glastonbury you find yourself a little deflated or suffering Post-Festival Blues, like my colleague and fellow blogger Katie Oldham, don’t fear, get following Folkstock and give yourself something to look forward to at the end of the summer!
