51st State Festival Preview by Angela Douglas

I’ve waited 51 weeks and now the mother of all festivals is only days away!

51st State arrives this Saturday 4th August  and promises to be BIG & BASHY with a host of global DJ’s and live performances on six stages across Trent Country Park.

Joining house music regular’s Masters At Work, John Morales, Todd Terry, Matt Jam Lamont, Bobby & Steve, 51st State has R&B The Lick leg Trevor Nelson and 80’s soulsters Loose Ends in the We Love Soul tent, reggae dancehall’s Mr Vegas and UK’s own Stylo G singing live sets under Hotwuk.

I could carry on listing and listing but there is no point. Last year’s reviews say it all. If you like music, if you like festivals, if you like dancing in 29 degree sunshine, grab one of the last few tickets and get yourself down to 51st State this Saturday. It’s gonna be a heatwave.

Divas Will Always Love Heavy D ~ RIP Bro xxx

He was a family man, who shared so much love, jokes and optimism about life with those who were closest to him (why do the good ones go first?).  Another great one has left our earthly shores and our thoughts are with his family.

A life taken too early, our brother Heavy D of music band Heavy D and the Boyz ~ real name Dwight Arrington Myers passed on today aged 44 after being rushed to hospital around noon and pronounced dead an hour later. No foul play has been reported.

His last major public appearance in the UK was a performance at the Michael Jackson Tribute Concert in Wales. Now we are about to celebrate his life too…terribly sad.

Singer Neyo tweeted: “”Man. I was just with Heavy D recently in London, “Had I known it’d be the last time I’d see him, I woulda told him he was truly great. RIP…”

D…you have created a huge void for your many fans, friends, acquaintances, and family to fill. Your larger than life personality and warmth of spirit leaves boots too big to fill. We will always love you.

Our thoughts and well wishes are with his family and dearest. RIP Heavy D….
