It's the Summer of Love, and one small town in northern England isn't going to miss out on the mellow peace vibe. Bassethwaite Music Festival is the cosmic event of the year, particularly for bands who didn't get invited to any of the decent festivals. We follow three such bands of idealistic struggling newcomers, as they chase the dream to become... Almost Crazy.
(Pennies From Heaven are a fairly typical Sixties four-piece. Dreaming Of Lava are Bassethwaite's foremost – indeed, only – prog band. The Doohickies are an acoustic duo. Kings of Debate have moved onto greater things and transcended genre.)
Premiere: Consequences 2009
Subsequent run: Consequences 2011
