Following on from his outing last weekend at Wickerman we thought we would send Skittles down to one of our favourite festivals of last year Kendal Calling. Here's his second unedited review from Kendal Calling.
Last weekend saw the return of the relocated KENDAL CALLING now situated a few more miles north of Kendal in the town of Hackthorpe.
We arrived late friday night to find the press office closed!!! So would like to thank chunky an the riot jazz boys for boxing' us off on a smoothers…. shadow!
Anyway rolled in an bumped straight into none other than manny don an label boss MC DRS, he had already played with breakage, an was just goin' on with Artwork of Magnetic Man. DRS is the best most original DnBb MC alive (that i've seen ha), EVERYONE was smashed on arrival alcohol is allowed on site as long as you can be responsible enough to put it in a plastic bottle ; )
Illegal contraband was definitely present and uniformed police were not. There was under cover c.i.d inside….. but they aren't there to ruin your fun. i'd be yin' if i said i watched any music outside of the RIOT JAZZ tent, which was an eclectic mix of acts including themselves, a band called RENEGADES who i really liked… and numerous live hip hop acts THAT WEREN'T MINE!!!!!
That didn't stop me doin' a drunken acoustic set in the vip garden. Only to be approached by craig charles an asked to come on his funk an soul show!!!!
Big up charlie vietch of the infamous love police, he was in the gaff….an i can vouch for my man. We were the last men standin in that festival……… we spent most our time in kendal callin' wearing goggles an drunken' out of coconuts up trees
Which is what its all about. Massive shout to stage manager johnny for bin' a good sport haha.
Skitz's final thought, overall this festival is fuckin' sick go there an love one another,
