Every so often, it’s nice to leave the bright lights of Bristol and head to a part of Britain’s beautiful coastline. Luckily for us, the organisers of Samphire Festival brought a good chunk of the Bristol music scene to Exmoor National Park this July – giving us the best of both worlds with a weekend full …
