mycornwall.tv brings together the very best of Cornwall.
Leopallooza Festival is now in it's 5th year, after starting out as a summer get together for a group of friends in 2006. A couple of touring bands heard about this, showed up, and it's all gone from there. In 2010, there were 2,000 people selling out all tickets in advance.
This all means it's still a small festival, and having grown up with a small local festival at my doorstep each summer, I know it's a great thing. Leopallooza has become known for its friendliness, and both festival-goers and artists praise the atmosphere. Plenty of local bands are seen on stage, drawing from the talent pools of both Devon and Cornwall. The organizers are thoughtfully promoting up and coming bands too, so the festival is a great opportunity to see bands who may soon fill huge venues.
Leopallooza takes place over two days at the end of July and beginning of August. Dates for next year aren't set yet, so sign up for their newsletter on the site. The festival takes place in a field near Bude in Cornwall, at 'The Wyldes' on Lower Exe Farm.
