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.

Review :: Angus & Julia Stone @ Royal Albert Hall {10.06.2018}

Unveiled in September, the Stones’ latest album ‘Snow’ is the latest in a body of work dating all the way back to 2006, when Angus & Julia first emerged from Sydney’s Northern Beaches with their signature harmonies and ethereal song craft.

Recorded in Angus’ Byron Bay cottage, ‘Snow’ is the first album written entirely in collaboration. And tonight at Royal Albert Hall, Angus and Julia Stone prove that they are so much better together –  for anyone who ever doubted it.

Review: All Points East Festival 2018

Monumental thunderstorms and immense sunsets hit London’s dramatic skyline over the weekend as Godlike artists graced the stages at Victoria Park for the inaugural All Points East festival.

All Points East 2018 will be remembered for many things; a diverse line up, glorious sunshine, and East London at its best. On Friday afternoon, Young Fathers bring their genre-bending set to the East Stage; Glass Animals showcase pineapple mania; Hot Chip create disco vibes in the Jägerhaus; Yonaka shut down the Firestone stage with their ferocious alt-rock; and Nick Murphy FKA Chet Faker steals hearts with his dark electronic pop.

Review: The Great Escape Festival 2018

For music industry professionals, the annual trip to Brighton for three days of drinking, schmoozing and live music feels a lot like Christmas. With no Glastonbury this year and a sunny forecast, it seems everyone was ‘OOO’ for The Great Escape Festival.

Stepping off the train, Brighton’s sea breeze instantly lifts your spirits. The colourful city comes to life in the sunshine as crowds of delegates and media flock towards Jubilee Square. After breezing through accreditation and dropping our bags at a quirky Airbnb, we head straight to the end of the pier where Scottish punk band LUCIA are serving up a frantic set, with a punchy attitude.
