Bowman to write Blink festivals guide

DJ and presenter Edith Bowman is to write a guide to music festivals for Blink Publishing, the non-fiction imprint of Bonnier Publishing Group.

Acquisitions director Clare Tillyer commissioned Edith Bowman’s Great British Music Festivals, with Blink holding worldwide rights.

The book will come with a free app featuring exclusive digital content and interviews with high profile musicians on their own festival experiences.

Bowman will include photographs from her personal collection and behind the scenes insights into the last 20 years of her festival going. The book will document her experiences, with Bowman reflecting on her greatest festival moments.

Bowman said: "I'm thoroughly enjoying the experience of reliving some life changing festival moments and also discovering some new beauties in the festival calendar. I have been so privileged to spend a great deal of time listening to music and other incredible performances in the great British outdoors over the years. To get the chance to share that with anyone is an exciting opportunity.”

The book will be published on 7th May 2015, with Blink saying it would be supported by a full sales, PR and marketing campaign on traditional and social media.
