The Occombe Beer Festival this year was headlined by ‘Something from Nothing’, a band from the Isle of Wight and the 3500 people who were present for their performance near Torquay had quite a blast. The Foo Fighters tribute band were in great form as they performed in what was the warmest day of the year to that point.
The band’s set was packed with many hits from start to finish and the performances were so good they had the whole crowd singing along with them to every song. The band was interviewed by Riviera.FM just before their performance and during the interview, they had a chance to play an acoustic version of ‘Times Like These’ to those who were listening in.
At the end of the show, the band stated that they’d had a great time and complimented the crowd. They also thanked those who’d put together the show and welcomed them to Occombe. The club will be headlining the popular V-Dub Festival on August 12 so if you missed their first performance of if once wasn’t enough for you, there is still a chance for you to catch them live on the Isle of Wight.

The festival takes place over two days and is filled with live music, a wide selection of delectable local foods and a wide range of drinks including wines, beer, and cider.
