Festivals-UKSummertime is here and with it come that countless great music festivals all across the United Kingdom. Rest assured there won’t be a single weekend without at least one festival going on.

With so many music festivals to go to this summer comes the question how to go about getting around so you won’t miss out on anything.

Getting to and back places may not be a major problem. But what about if you want to stay at a festival location for a couple of days, seeing that most larger music festivals in UK are usually lasting for an entire weekend.

It’s obviously not always practicable if you where to book a hotel room or need to look for a bed and breakfast. Prices for lodging at the common festival locations are often outrageous, not to mention the problem of even finding a place.

I found that getting around with a camper van can be the best way to travel in the festival season. Camping will allow you to visit and enjoy many music festivals without needing to worry about where you would need to stay. A camper van is just perfect for those short-term trips.

If you happen to be in a band yourself, nothing comes close to a camper van. It allows you to carry equipment easily from one place to the other. Not anyone has a super-sized transporter, this is where a camper van fits nicely in between.

So, rather than spending a fortune on lodging and going through a lot of stress looking for rooms when everything is overbooked I recommend that you consider a camper van hire. You can see VW camper van hire Devon to learn all about how to get a camper van for the music festival season without the fuss! Who knows, you may like camping that much that you would even want to purchase your very own camper van in no time!

 

Amongst those musicians who contributed to excellent British music sales this past year are One Direction’ s Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith. According to newly published numbers, the sales of British music have reached the highest market share in five years.

13.7% of all global album sales, this is about one in seven albums sold in the previous year, had been with music acts from Great Britain.

The British Phonographic Industry Music Market 2015 yearbook reports that the sales by British artists amount to around £1.8 billion.

What’s more, over half of the global top 10 musicians in the year 2014 had been British. This includes musicians and bands such as One Direction, Coldplay and Pink Floyd.

In the United Kingdom, British musicians make 53.5% of all music album sales with most, if not all of the top 10 charts taken by artists from the United Kingdom.

horse-racing-UKIf you are as much into horse racing as I am I’m sure you won’t mind the one or the other helpful tip.

This one I got from my friend Mike and I want to share it with you since it already helped me many times when I was at the track. The best thing about the tip Mike gave me is that it won’t cost you any money to play it.

What he told me a few months ago was to look into those professionals on the Internet who provide horseracing tips and strategies. Most of them actually offer free trial runs which means that you can get their horseracing tips for free.

The strategies I was looking at are from the website owned by the “Horse Racing Pro” at horseracingpro.co.uk. I found those horse racing tips amongst the most solid and helpful and you can take my word that I tried already a lot of them.

So if you like the races like me and my buddies you should definitely check them out.

frank-turner-performingSeveral British artists and musicians are now backing squatters who occupy the music venue 12bar which was closed last month.

The musicians, among them singer-songwriter Frank Turner are performing impromptu gigs at the famous location

Turner impressed with a surprise appearance last week where he performed with an acoustic guitar.

Bournemouth based rock band Mountain Feet appeared this week. Hearse Pile Up and indie-pop London band Those Unfortunates will be there in Denmark Street this week.

Ever since the venue was closed for renovations last month, activists, who are calling themselves ‘Bohemians 4 Soho’, have been squatting in the building.

ergonomic-chairs-studio
I was suffering from back pain for more than 10 years. Those were years where I was visiting one doctor after the other where most of them didn’t do anything more than prescribe pain killers. One notable exception was the acupuncture which showed good results, although mostly temporary for only a week or two.

Working from home for eight hours a day in my music studio I never considered that I should possibly look there for the root of my pains: In my office and studio.

It happened that we moved to another location which was a good opportunity that we replaced all our old office furniture, the chairs and desks with modern, ergonomic types.

It didn’t take a month and I felt a big relief of my pains which nagged me for so long already. It became quickly clear that the main reason for my health issues had been the chairs and less than optimal furniture we used for so many years. Now, with the new ergonomic chairs, not only did my back get better. I was finally able to work much longer without feeling tired after some hours already. With my back pains getting less and less I also saw fewer other health problems, less migraines and an overall better focus and motivation for my work.

So if you’re like me and work long hours sitting on a computer, maybe in your own studio or at work, you should definitely look into ergonomic chairs. This was probably the best decision we ever made. And let’s be honest, what can be more important than good health and well-being?
