As our spectacular summer draws to a close, there’s still one last chance to celebrate at a music festival as a final send off to the great time we’ve all had these past few months. If ever there was a summer to celebrate then it’s definitely the one we just had. The Shine On Weekender in Minehead is a celebration of all things Rock n Roll, Indie and Dance from the late 80s, the 90s and beyond into the 2000s. Here you’ll find all the artists that sound-tracked the era that we still celebrate today. It was was a time when everyone seemed to move to the same beat, whether that beat by Ocean Colour Scene or Orbital. So many of the music acts you’ll find at the festival have helped to shape the current music scene, influencing a whole generation of people working in the industry today. Many of the Gents of London Barbershop regular clients will be attending this year, and it’s a hot topic in the shop recently.
At the event, you’ll find amazing live music from the bands previously mentioned, as well as performances from Gents of London Barbershop favourites like the Rifles, Black Grape and Shed Seven. You’ll also be able to enjoy much more than the headline acts. Other features include acoustic sessions, tribute bands, a Britpop/Indie quiz and exhibitions. For anyone feeling nostalgic, or anyone who’s discovering the scene for the first time, it’s going to be a weekend to remember before the long nights close in.
