Festival review: Blissfields 2012
Share This Article:
Arriving at Blissfields the relaxed family friendly atmosphere washes over you before even stepping off the shuttle bus. As well as the two stages, there is a sports day area and hammocks, so when walking into the field you are greeted by a variety of colour and sound. Many musicians had a similar musical feel, experimenting with pop and indie, with the best performances given by those who bought a high level of energy to the stage. The best example of this was Man Like Me, performing new hits, 'Peculiar' and 'Oh My Gosh'. The band made themselves festival favourites not only because of singer/rapper Johnny Langer’s tendency to take off an item of clothing during every tune and his climbing the scaffolding on the stage, but the way their eclectic music style was brought to life by incorporating electronic instruments and a live trumpet player into the mix.
