    Desert Island Disco was the theme if you couldn’t already tell from the sea of Hawaiian shirts and mirror ball hats that dominated the fields of Robin Hill from the 4th-7th of September.

    OhLayIndigoclearly understands the power that…

    Slash - World On Fire

    He’s hailed as a guitar God and has had one of the most illustrious axe-wielding careers in music history, starting with riffs that changed the world in Guns n’ Roses, to rocking the 00s in supergroup Velvet Revolver, and even finding success with side project Slash’s Snakepit.
