30 years ago today (July 27, 1991), the Slough Festival took place in the town’s Upton Court Park, disproving John Betjeman’s assertion that there wasn’t “grass to graze a cow” in the Berkshire town.
Head to our rolling blog about 1991: The Year Shoegaze Broke to read all about the day, which saw Ride, Curve, Slowdive and Revolver among the bands sharing the stage.
To mark the occasion we have put together a very special book by acclaimed photographer Joe Dilworth. Grass To Gaze: Slough Festival 1991 will be released on October 27. We will reveal more details about the book – and an accompanying launch event and exhibition at The Social – soon, but for now you can pre-order a copy.
