If last year was the summer of sport, this year should be known as the summer of music! There's an amazing line up of concerts by top artists including Robbie Williams, Rihanna and Bruce Springsteen and a cracking Glastonbury and Download Festival, as well as great local gigs and music including our very own Ripley Music Festival, which kicked off last week.
