ABOUT

My Dad's Bigger Than Your Dad is a one day music festival being held at the Old Town Bowl in Swindon, run by the people behind the Swindon Shuffle in partnership with South Swindon Parish Council, in tribute to Dave Young, the former landlord of The Victoria and 12 Bar, who sadly died in early June 2021 at the Prospect Hospice after a hard-fought battle against cancer.

The line up includes two of Dave's former bands - the Irish folk-punk band The Boy's From County Hell and the legendary punk covers band The Chaos Brothers - plus a host of acts who were championed by Dave in one way or another during his time as a cornerstone of the local music community.

 

All profits will be going to Swindon's Prospect Hospice, who have not been able to organise any big fundraising events for two years because of the current pandemic.

...and if you're wondering about the name of the festival, this is now the second time it is taking place since Dave ran a five day festival under this name at The Victoria in 2012.
