Drum roll

So for Once Upon a Time in the West Festival 2018, the theme for dressing up on Sunday will be ..
Yep this one gives quite a lot of range and there will be prizes for the best costume as usual… So will it be Queens, Princesses, Kings, Naves, Dragons, Instruments of Dastardly Things, Folklore, Dungeons – the list goes on and on – get creative, we love things that make us laugh – shrubberies, Killer Rabbits of Caerbannog, hot pokers…

and once again thanks to Perry Harris for our amazing Gargoyles

Dry White Bones save the day!!!

…. and Praise Be!!! We love working with this pair – the sound, the look and the positive attitude to their performance is so great that you can taste it. Sadly United Stoats of America have had to drop out and we’ve brought you Dry WHite Bones along as a special treat….

The Devil’s Damned String Band join the Horde…

The best Bluegrass Band from the South Coast? Probably… featuring most of the same members of The Doghouse Boat Boys ( whom they have replaced) comes Bluegrass of epic proportions played how it should be, raw and live!!! 

The new artwork is released!!

See below – says it all really – loads more bands on the back, which of course you can’t see – but it looks great from here….



Smerins Anti-Social Club are coming to OUT West…

Well, we’ve been after them to come and play for years and now we’ve got ’em!!! A true Bristol Heavyweight and one of the original purveyors of the Bristol Ska sound, we’re very honoured to have Smerins along for 2018. Check out their Radio 6 performance below…


Los Albertos are back!!!

 Yes indeedy!! Brighton Ska Naughties Los ALbertos are back once again for one of their rare UK festival appearances. It’s been a couple of years since L.A. got back together to do a few one offs, having decided to call it a day. OUT West 15 was one of hallowed dates, and we’re well chuffed to have them back again in 2018.
