Valley Fest is back and the Gazette has tickets to giveaway

By Silas Cox in Local People

Local music and food lovers are lucky to have an organic festival right on their doorstep at the picturesque Chew Valley Lake. Valley Fest returns this year on the 4th-6th August with tractor loads of sparkle, a top ten headliner and fabulous organic food. Now in its fourth year the festival is the brain child of Compton Martin’s Luke Hasell and initially began as a fundraiser in memory of his farming parents who had passed away. The festival has become a family-friendly celebration of music, food and fun.

Singer songwriter José González has been announced as this year’s headliner. The Argentinian-Swedish musician’s song Heartbeats reached no.9 in the UK charts when it was released in 2006 and he has had a top ten album, Veneer, which went platinum in his home country of Sweden. In February this year he released his first solo album in seven years to the delight of his many fans around the world, and is currently touring the album with one of his tour stops being the Chew Valley’s very own Valley Fest.

And the Gazette has three pairs of day tickets to give away. To be in with a chance of winning all you need to do is answer the following question correctly: What’s the name of the Swedish singer/songwriter headlining this year’s Valley Fest?
