The Parish in Huddersfield used to be one of the UK’s best kept secrets, but in the last couple of years it’s become more of a household name and played host to some high profile acts such as The Bronx, Cancer Bats, While She Sleeps, Norma Jean, and many more.

It would come as no surprise if the 2016 run of Download Festival would be known forever going forward as the year of Drownload. Easily the wettest Download Festival to have happened, with storms and torrential downpours happening throughout almost the whole weekend, it’d be impossible to be mud free, even if you were only catching one band. Thankfully, we had wellies and warm waterproof clothing well equipped. Download, let’s be ‘aving ya!

Parading up and down the country over the last couple of years, including a mesmerising performance at Reading Festival last year, Brighton’s Black Peaks have built quite a cult following, despite not releasing a huge amount of material.
