“Festivals are dropping off like flies. With bad weather, low ticket sales and poor security and organisation it’s tough for a small independent festival. Summer Sundae, now in its eleventh year has no such problems. Despite the abundance of other local festivals Summer Sundae remains a premier event in the East Midlands region. With a reputation for mainstream headliners and a family orientated atmosphere supported this year by a safari theme for children and adults alike. There’s much more to the festival, however, than simply a place for parents to dump their children in the nearest play pen while they join the road to nostalgia, and the parental veneer is cut with a credible underbelly of alternative music.”
