Neon Lights Festival is upon us this weekend (28 – 29 Nov) and these are the acts we are most looking forward to.

SONGHOY BLUES – MUSIC IN EXILE
A Mali band of musicians that had to run away from the unrest in their homeland to deliver a wonderful amalgam of African ethnic music and rock ‘n’ roll – edgy and relevant.
