All Tog-ether now


AFTER an absence of two years, the musical itch became too much to bear for organisers, and so the Togfest returns this weekend.

Back in its original setting with Bradwell Abbey as its backdrop, Togfest invites you all to the party this Saturday.

You’ll need to take your stamina along though – with a whopping 11 hours of sounds set to roll from 11.30am.

“Togfest has always prided itself on delivering something new and ‘different’ to its MK audience crossing boundaries and exposing the audience to ‘stuff they wouldn’t normally listen to’, as well as the type of music they are into,” organiser Ian Rowe said, before promising “Togfest 2012 will be no exception.”

Ian is a member of festival hosts Togmor, the new city-based troupe who will assume position on the stage to wrap up the event with a headlining stint of dual fiddled folk rock.

But you’ve a long wait to get to their classy work...not that you’ll notice the day dragging – with a feisty cocktail of sounds to tickle you through the day – just check that line-up on the right.

Togfest is another family affair and ptomises craft stalls, good quality food and naturally a bar or two pulling pints of the wet stuff.

The kids won’t be interested in that, but they’ll love the free activities put in place for them.

It’s a big bash at a reasonable price: £15 for adults and accompanied under 12s get in for just £2.

Purchase on the day or via the website, which is also the place to head for more information:

Togfest never releases stage times for the artists on the bill, or indeed the order in which they will appear, but Saturday’s lineup will definitely include:

Electro acoustic pop from Lu Cozma, Anglo-Cuban players The Swanvest Social Club, songwriting collective The Jar Family, bold Blues from The Bare Bones Boogie Band, rock and rap (and dubstep to classical) will roll from Never A Hero, with others set to grace the two stages including Strobe Circus, Electric River, Hoopy Frood, The Elizans, Prita, The Songs of James Taylor, Breathe, The Special Ks and Ego Trip, before headliners Togmor wrap up another year with plenty of festive cheer and tunes.

Get jiggy with ‘em....
