Steelhouse Festival 2013 - Day 1 27th July 2013 by Jenny Potter
Arrived at the festival site around 2pm drove and parked my car and walked past Anvil's Sal Italiano and Lips (Steve Kudlow was crashed out in the tour lorry) Collected my pass and had a quick look around before photographing the bands which included Dead Shed Jokers, Hands of Dimes, Fighting Wolves, Temperance Movement, Anvil, FM and Saxon.
Today I was covering the Steelhouse festival I had a AAA photo pass so was able to photograph on stage with the bands, be back stage and in the VIP area. Mind you the portable toilets were just as bad in VIP as they were in the main festival bit. I think having the festival at a top of a mountain not far from Ebbw Vale is a bit of a disadvantage to any fan who can't drive as well no buses were put on for this festival so please make a note next year to advertise it a bit more and put buses on please.
Managed to be on stage for a few bands and Anvil, Sal Italiano and lips Steve Kudlow were very friendly and didn't mind me going on stage with them. Thanks guys.
Anyway a few photos from the day. The new band to look out for is a band called Temperance Movement who gave a very entertaining performance and have their debut album out in September.
