Review: Wireless Festival 2014.

…stival season’ has well and truly begun in earnest. And so for the first, and possibly last time, given Wireless Festival’s wont for hopping from one of London’s numerous leafy expanses to another, the major label love-in takes place in N4’s Finsbury Park. Indeed, the luxury of being able to eat some “damn croissants”, or rather crumpets, a half-hour prior to Tinie Tempah’s ironically humongous Main Stage slot, not least post-Glastonbury, is most…So on & so forth…

Review: Isle of Wight Festival 2015.

…a fide ‘festival’ proper – ‘a tricky thing’ to correctly define, or so he seems to opine. Nonetheless, this is a festival – and yes, it seems eminently appropriate to label it thusly – that has a real allure to it; one made all the more so this season by an irresistible slew of headliners old and, well, if not new, then slightly less spry than some… But the Isle of Wight Festival isn’t merely all about the music, man; its proximity to Newpo…So on & so forth…

Review: Festival Nº6 2014.

…detailing either the history of, or the journey to the weekend bender in question. Nonetheless, when it comes to Festival Nº6, it seems altogether more suitable to start by stating the obvious to all that know, and in turn love the Portmeirion jamboree – now in its third year, for the sake of completism, and conformity to type likewise. That is to say, and so to say forthright: Festival Nº6 is among, if not the very best that Britain has to offer…So on & so forth…

Review: Simple Things 2014.

…aylight saving malarkey, the live music scene takes a considerable, discernible turn, as our saturated summer of festivals slows to a drip, before seemingly drying out altogether. You can imagine our delight, then, when seemingly out of nowhere, we were presented with Simple Things – a two-day music, and visual arts festival, now in its fourth year. Situated across multiple venues in the city centre of Bristol, Simple Things gave us the opportuni…So on & so forth…

Review: Reading Festival 2014.

…ing the boredom brought about by Jake Bugg, Bombay Bicycle Club and so on ad nauseam. However, even when Reading Festival is at its most uncivilised, by virtue of the fact that you’re never altogether removed from civilisation, there remain a number of options available to the apathetic. In Reading town centre for instance, intoxicated local types continue to refer to the event as “the rock festival.” Of course conversely, it’s something of a sha…So on & so forth…

Review: Wilderness 2015.

For a number of reasons, Wilderness – the name by which the early August Cornbury Park bash, inaugurated in 2011 and now in its fifth year, is both known and renowned – makes for a particularly interesting bit of nomenclature: at no more than a mere hour outside of London, this decidedly civilised get-together is scarcely removed from civilisation as we know, and often loathe it. Nevertheless, Wilderness is as much an unpredictably wild one in n…So on & so forth…

Sunday, Reading Festival 2013.

…how tonight at Reading’ read the Nine Inch Nails lynchpin’s Twitter prior to his first return to the festival in six relatively silent years. ‘The lying promoter and the band following us (whoever the fuck they are) fucked us on our production’ he continued, a steaming setlist furiously punched into his iPhone notes then beginning: ‘fuck you festival republic’ and right from the off, there’s an underlying…So on & so forth…
