After 2019’s successful event in the heart of Reading we’re pleased to learn that Down At The Abbey, an all-day outdoor festival set in the ruins of the towns’ 900-year-old abbey, is back on this September. Keith Goldhanger will be getting the train there and previews the event for those also tempted to have a day out.
Boasting two small stages and great acts organised by the same folk that arrange our other favourite festival in the same vicinity (Are you Listening?) this an event not to be missed. Snapped Ankles, Lonelady, The Utopia Strong and Flamingods may have the biggest font on the posters but rest assured the rest of the day is sure to live up to the usual high standards the organisers usually provide us with. Sinead O’Brien, Mush, Do Nothing and Readings’ own Adam & Elvis are also mouth watering additions we hope to be there for, and with the event less than an hour from Central London a cheap day return on the train should get us there and back without too much fuss and bother.
2019’s event was reviewed here and below are some of the tunes we’ll be listening to before heading over to what we expect will be another of our favourite annual events.
