I realise I’m probably gonna get beasted on here for this whether you like it or not but here goes. I want to tell you about a new music festival for the Military called GreenZone Festival, it’s a 3 day camping event held in Loughborough, Leicestershire over the weekend of June 29th 2012. The line-up includes bands like Reverend and The Makers, The Sunshine Underground, Little Comets, Dirty Goods plus loads more. Our comedy stage is being headlined by Dirty Sanchez`s Pritchard VS Dainton plus loads of comedians and live acts covering the weekend (it will be like 18-30`s meets a festival). Plus the usual randomness (like midgets with water pistols full of tequila) that you would expect a squaddie to come up with when asked to plan a festival. I left the Army last Aug after serving 12 years to set up a decent event for the lads/ladies. Every Military event I went to, be it a camp families day where I spent the day drinking warm beer out of a 9x9 dodging shit jobs whilst planning my getaway down town or a Military festival full of civvies where the star attraction is no doubt the kit you work on all day, and more recruiting trailers than bars. ### I am not knocking them too much as I know they raise loads of money for Military charities ### but they were not what I liked to do in my time off. GreenZone is different! We are proud to say "the only Military thing at our event is you". We have linked up with Forcespenpals.co.uk to stop the usual sausage fest you get at these things. Further to that we will also be donating 10p from every £1 profit to H4H, ABF and Cash 4 Commandos. The event is open to all serving, ex serving and their supporters. Our website is GreenZone Festival | Military Festival (don’t forget to click on the recce tab on the top right corner of the homepage). Facebook is Greenzone Festival Twitter is @GreenZonefest I would love to hear what you all think. Plus we still have just under 3 months to the event so tell me what you would like to see there! Let the beasting commence.
