Sharrow Festival turned out sunny again despite predictions of rain all week the day went well and the rain held off to allow everyone to have a great day in Mount Pleasant park. The festival was really well attended with 2 music stages, a hip-hop zone, kids play area a bouncy castle and slide, a mechanical bronco, craft, theatre, dance and circus workshops, craft stalls, clothes stalls, henna tattoos and loads of great food a teat tent and a coffee stall. Music included Blues, Reggae, Qawwali, African Drumming, Italian Rap and more.
Right at the end some muppets tried to start a brawl but it got shut down by by the police and the only shower of the day. The message is clear don’t start trouble at the Sharrow festival you get rained on.
The shower and the trouble passed and the folk that stayed were treated to a fantastic finale by Robert Maseko and his Congo beat.
Anarchism is more than just seeking nihilism, and likewise if you understand nihilism and hedonism it is far more political than your crass selfishness you once again displayed.
