Sun shines on Strummercamp revellers

Date published: 29 May 2018

Live music fanatics lapped up the family friendly Strummercamp festival, which took place in Oldham for the first time.

The bank holiday weekend weather was kind as a full line-up of terrific bands - including local outfits Blackballed, Tony Auton, George Borowski and Mora, Red Light Effect, Time for Action and the Crash Mats - strutted their considerable stuff in front of appreciative crowds on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Oldham RUFC's Manor Park ground in Bardsley.

Strummercamp - voted one of Britain’s friendliest music festivals five years ago - was originally set up to recognise the spirit of former Clash front-man Joe Strummer, and in the end delivered three days of liberation, freedom and fun at a DIY festival run by the fans for the fans.
