Editorial: August 2017
We're quietly getting things back on an even keel here, with a reasonable amount of updates last month despite being on holiday for much of that time.
Of course, August is traditionally the month France shuts down for the summer, with fewer releases and events taking place. But there's no shortage of interesting
While July saw significant festivals pretty much every weekend, from Hellfest to Vieilles Charrues and Les Francofolies de La Rochelle, that continues this month with a number of events from the Festival Interceltique de Lorient to the Rock en Seine festival in Paris at the end of the month.
Other interesting things are in the pipeline, as previews for the key releases for la rentrée emerge over the coming weeks and artists unveil their plans for what is coming up over the next few months, still a key time of year for the music industry.
In the meantime,you can get a hold of me at johnkilbrideAThotmailDOTcom, with the appropriate punctuation where you'd expect it to be.
I'm always pleased to hear from record companies, PR companies and promoters, so do drop me an email. I'm always keen to hear new things, and relay information about acts I already know and love.
The blog is also on Twitter as @viveleroq, although that's prety much just an autofeed when we update with a new article. You can usually find me on my personal Twitter acount quicker, @karnag
