Live broadcast has now finished but see below for updates!
Longside Radio has teamed up with the Upton Blues Festival to bring you your very own radio station for the festival weekend. You can listen to us on 87.7FM in and around the Upton area.
We will be on air from Friday morning until midnight on Sunday bringing you the best music both from the festival and elsewhere and the latest news and information about what is going on around the town.
We hope to bring you music from the stages and interviews with the artists and also non festival related interviews with the people and organisations that make Upton the wonderful town it is for the rest of the year.
You will find us located next to the Rugby Club building by the Sports Field stage.
You can’t miss us, look for the mast!
We will be adding recordings to this page and hopefully making them available more prominent on the site as we work through the material.
Due to licensing restrictions we can’t make any recordings containing copyrighted material available for download although our license does allow us to stream them. Yes we know it is madness.
So we are planning to try to repeat some of the full shows via our usual stream and we are going to work with the artists to bring you a series of files you can either download or podcast containing live sets from our green room (in the blue tent 🙂 ), interviews and any fun stuff we find lying around 🙂
For those of you who were sensibly in bed just after midnight on the Friday here is Mark David (who had his microphone up a bit too loud) going live on the first Blues Festival FM radio station in the UK!
One last thing, if you have any photos of the station or comments / memories from over the weekend, please send them in and let us know if we can use them on air or in recordings. We were so rushed off our feet we forgot to take many! Either send them in to firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch via Facebook or Twitter!
