Post subject: Specialized at Coventry Godiva Reply with quote

After visiting Coventry last year with the sole purpose of visiting the Two Tone Village, my other half said she would go back if we went when the Godiva festival was on.
With that in mind, when the dates for the free festival were announced earlier this year, I didn't hang around in booking a hotel to cover the dates, without waiting for the line up and looking back at previous years line up's - I was sure there would be a few decent bands to see this year.
I was happy with initial announcement of The Stranglers and Cast, and happy enough with Carl Barat and The Jackals (the other bloke from The Libertines) and a bloke from The Enemy doing a solo acoustic, other than that, as more acts got announced - I became a little despondent at what was on offer over three days with the exception of the above, and Sunday was looking particularly bleak until I saw this:

So that is now Sunday sorted, might see you there Mr Willo?
I will hopefully visit the village on the Friday before the festival starts Very Happy
