Shine On Weekender (5-9 November) is a brand new festival for your festival-ing needs coming to Butlins Minehead U.K.  this year. Headliners include The Happy Mondays, The Wonder Stuff, Inspiral Carpets, Peter Hook and the Light, Stereo MC’s, 808 State, The Orb, The Wedding Present, The Farm, and many more, including Adorable’s Pete Fij (now performing as Pete Fij & Terry Bickers). Also on offer are many DJ sets and, to round out your late 80’s and early 90’s Indie and Dance music needs, The Clone Roses and Oasis UK.

All but sold out, this festival promises four solid days and nights of reverie, good times and new memories. Presented by North Country Boys and Butlins’ Live Music Weekends, the ticket price includes accommodations on site plus a full festival pass. Along with a full schedule of great live music, Shiiine On will feature afternoon pool parties (including one hosted by Bez of Happy Mondays) and film screenings. Eternal summer can be yours…

As you may have already guessed, we at Step On Mag have more than a passing interest in The Happy Mondays, now on a massive 2015 tour, and this festival is a cause for celebration for UK music lovers as well as those cheering on from Canada and US! (“Ha ha hey, ha ha hey!” <whistles expertly>)
