Festival line up for Gem & The Mil Men

MEADOWS IN THE MOUNTAINS last weekend was a great way to kick off the season..

Off the plane, through Bulgarian customs, out onto the coach, dropped off at our lovely house in the mountains & taken to the Meadows a mere shower later.

This left us free to party like toerags for the next few days. If you can I’d highly recommend this one next year!

CIDERBOX in collaboration with Strummerville – Sat 16th at 6pm!


We’re playing at THE CIDER BOX event in collaboration with Strummerville that brings Somerset to the WIGWAMBAM at Queen of Hoxton.


Joe Strummer once said that his idea of heaven was, “lying in a field with a flagon of Wilkin’s cider,” which is why we decided to donate profits from the sale of Wilkin’s cider on the day to Strummerville (an independent, non-political UK registered charity), which was set up to offer resource and support for artists that would not normally have access to it.
