Birmingham Zine Festival

For the last few months I’ve been lending a helping hand to organising of the very first Birmingham Zine Festival!

The main events of the festival kick off on September 10th with the Film Night at The Edge and continue until September 12th with events such as zine printing workshop and a picnic in the park.

We’re also having ongoing exhibitions at Urban Outfitters (which opened tonight) and a Postcard Exhibition at The Framers, which opens tomorrow (September 3rd) at 7pm.

You should all go and support the local independent publishing scene and perhaps even start your very own zine!

I was at Glastonbury Festival lat week volunteering with Oxfam. When not on my shift watching as people got searched I saw these bands:

King Blues

Ben Folds
Fun Lovin’ Criminals
A little bit of Fatboy Slim

A little bit of Massive Attack

John Mayer
Mark Ronson
A bit of Goldfrapp
A bit of Leonard Cohen
The Zutons
A bit of Solomon Burke
A bit of Manu Chao

As you can probably tell I had my Gameboy Camera with me too 🙂 There’ll be a few more pictures like that coming soon!
