THE boutique festival for 2013 has to be Detestival, curated by Wet Nuns this is a self-admitted ‘selfish’ attempt to see some of the bands they love, hate or have played with live. Held over two days and in association with Kraken Rum and Throng Of Nobs the monster line up features Wolf People, Bo Ningen, Hookworms, Throne, Dry Heaves, Black Moth, Blood Sport, Hawk Eyes, Toy, Temples, Kult Country, John J Presley, Salem Rages and Temple of Coke.
Set in the function room of a working man’s club complete with sparkly curtain the weekend is set to go off like a tinnitus inducing sweat infused glitter bomb, it’s not one for the faint hearted.
