Review: RÜFÜS DU SOL @ O2 Forum Kentish Town {23.08.2018}

When there’s no place you’d rather be on a Thursday evening than at O2 Forum Kentish Town for a sold out show with Sydney dance trio RÜFÜS DU SOL. Comprised of members Tyrone, Jon and James – RÜFÜS first made their break in 2013, when their debut album, ATLA , reached number one in Australia.

Fast forward to 2018 and the electronic dance outfit are making waves around the world. Part of the Foreign Family collective, RÜFÜS have spent lots of time in America – largely influenced by the desert landscapes of California and their experiences on the road.

Review: Øyafestivalen 2018 – the summer’s best line up

After stealing my heart five years ago, returning to Norway for my first Øyafestivalen felt long overdue. Flying over Norway is indescribable – like looking down over the setting for a fairytale. Glistening lakes, enchanted forests and roads that seem to stretch to nowhere.

Øyafestivalen is Norway’s renowned music festival that takes place at the beautiful Tøyenparken Park, a short tube journey from the centre of the capital. Oslo is often referred to as the “live capital” of Scandinavia since they have more than twice as many yearly shows as Stockholm and Copenhagen combined. Øyafestivalen offered the world’s best line up this summer and we defo had to experience it.

Review: Farr Festival 2018

From humble beginnings in 2009, Farr Festival knows what it’s doing. Located in Bygrave Woods, near Baldock, just half an hour away from Central London, Farr has evolved from a small gathering of like-minded friends into one of the UK’s leading electronic music festivals. With record breaking temperatures in the UK right now, it’s an exciting time to be at any festival.

Being one of the UK’s last standing boutique dance music festivals, Farr always guarantees a hedonistic escape soundtracked by an eclectic medley of producers, selectors and performers. The dance scene itself attracts hedonists on every level. Whatever your love, whatever your high. The crowd are on a level. Driven by the music. Driven by the buzz.

Review: TRNSMT 2018

Scotland’s biggest festival finished off an incredible sun drenched weekend at Glasgow Green as Arctic Monkeys made their comeback in a UK festival exclusive.

As the sun went down, Arctic Monkeys graced the TRNSMT main stage with a generous set – a varied track list from previous albums, as well as promoting the brand new ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’. Fans went mental as Alex Turner brought pal Miles Kane to the stage for 505, and we saw tracks such as Arabella, Knee Socks and I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor, with an unreal encore of Star Treatment, From The Ritz to the Rubble and R U Mine?

Review: Sónar Barcelona 2018

That feeling in your heart when everything connects: the music, the lights, the crowd, everything is connected. These are the moments that keep thousands of people coming back to Sonar year on year. 126, 000 people descended on the streets of Barcelona for Sonar 2018, the highest attendance in its history.

A festival so effortlessly cool it stands close to the forefront of the world’s most pivotal musical experiences. In it’s 25th year and housed proudly amongst Barcelona’s artsy streets, Sonar’s venues blend slick modern architecture with historical grandeur.
