Life, Simply Led

Magic Summer Live Music Festival Ticket Giveaway!

It’s Festival Time and, if you live where we live, the sky is full of private helicopters circling Babbington House and heading of to Glastonbury to offload their latest celebrity cargo. Mr TS and I spent many a happy year in the mud fields of deepest Somerset, it seemed rude not to when we lived so close but, over the last few years, the appeal has worn off a little and we’ve turned instead to smaller, family friendly, festivals. Last year we had a blast at Wilderness, this year we’ve been invited to review WOMAD (more on that one soon) and a new one to us Magic Summer Live.

I can’t tell you how excited I was when I saw the line up for Saturday at Magic Summer; Jamiroquai, Ocean Colour Scene and CHIC amongst many others! One of my earliest followers on Twitter three years ago was a certain Mr Nile Rodgers and, once I’d established he was the Real Thing, we had a bit of a banter and have even shared one or two brief private Direct Message conversations. For those of you who have been living under a rock for the last 35 years, Nile is one of the founder members of Chic, is a FABULOUS guitarist and a frankly incredible music producer. He is The Man behind many of my favourite tracks by some of my favourite artists collaborating with David Bowie (swoon), Duran Duran (swoon), Diana Ross (OMG), Madonna (not my cup of tea) and, most recently Daft Punk (How cool is he?!).

He’s played his guitar for Aretha Franklin and Ben E King amongst many MANY more. He is the king of Funk and R&B and I can’t WAIT to see him live, this has MADE MY YEAR!

The rest of the line up on the Saturday is equally funky while Sunday sashays into the world of Rock and Pop, go and have a look for yourselves, the full line up can be seen here.

SO, many of you are now jealous and you are wishing you too could be there shaking your booty to Chic, Ocean Colour Scene, Bryan Adams, James Morrison and the rest! BUT I’m not here just to say ‘Oooh, aren’t I a lucky blogger?!’, I have TICKETS TO GIVEAWAY! Tickets are on sale here priced £67 per adult per day and £30 per child but I have a family pass for both days (2 adults and 2 children) up for grabs!

The deadline on this one is tight so leap into that Rafflecopter giveaway below and cross your fingers! The closing date is 3rd July at 12am so get a wiggle on!

You can also enter to win over on Sally’s blog at Who’s the Mummy and Annie’s at Mammasaurus. Both have closing dates after mine so, if you’ve missed the boat here, nip over there right now!

This is the song which first introduced me to Nile when I bought the LP from a record stall on Stafford Market way back in the day!
