IT’S A WRAP! – MONSTER SUCCESS TEST FEST

TEST FEST MUSIC FESTIVAL – MONSTER SUCCESS!

The sun was shining, the bands were playing and the people just loved the 5th Test Fest. This much loved music festival in Taunton truly had the support of local businesses, performers and families.

With its quirky monster designs, new branding and lots of local talent the crowds flocked in and had a really fun day. Children were treated to a free ticket and a tent all of their own to make sock monsters, Pants Bunting and decorated bright orange pants. Close by was The Drumbus which had many drumming workshops all day, this culminated in a fantastic show by our patron, local entertainer Nutty Noah.

 

For those there for the music they were not disappointed, so much talent all in one day. Richard Huish College Band, Placeholder kicked off the festival with style, before sailing to perform at The Isle of Wight festival on the Sunday. They were joined by many south west bands including: Bliss, The Mayhaps, The Idle Silence and Thomas Kavanagh. The Jamestown Brothers and Filta really got the party started and the festival was concluded with headliners Stereosonics. In between bands, there was an exceptional duo Peck and Peck who really kept the musical momentum going. Artist Dixon Does Doodles provide a signed image of the stage including monster for the raffle!
