Pixie Hollow


 

Gigs

 

1. Headbangers Balls in Manchester.

 

2. SOS Fest - An amazing line up over 2 days. Really enjoyed sets from the likes of Monument and Savage Messiah.

 

3. Festwich - Very friendly and inviting. Fantastic day out for all the family and so many fantastic bands. Massive Wagons were absolutely brilliant even if the singer did almost fall off stage at on point as he was dancing about. Such a great atmosphere. Fantastic turn out many familiar faces supporting such a great cause.
