Hats off and all other salutations to the BBC NI Blast Team – Emma John Emma and Caroline for an impressive start to the Blast Festival in Belfast. I’ve just come back from the site at Customs House Square with that middle aged feeling "We didn’t have that sort of thing when I was young." Of course we didn;t have the technology in the first place and the BBC was some distant organisation that fed pictures into our homes.
There is many a thing thre that the average broadcaster like The Truck run by the North Eastern Education and Library Board. The Blast truck itself is an impressive bit of design and engineering too.
They’ll all be there until late on Saturday night when the event finished with a concert Oppenheimer, The Jane Bradfords and Superfreakz with support from some new young bands playing.
