Albums of 2016: Records We’ve Loved

With Christmas just around the corner we thought we’d remind you about some of our favourite records from the past year. You never know, you may find inspiration for that tricky secret santa or a new excuse to use those itunes vouchers.  BadBadNotGood – IV As a station we probably got onto BadBadNotGood a little…

Review: MIRRORS Festival

Words: Sarah Myles. Last Saturday saw London’s Hackney Central play host to a myriad of shows and speakers as part of the (we hope now) annual festival to extend your festival season, the mighty MIRRORS. With venues including vintage clothing shop/cafe Paperdress, the EXTREMELY glittery Moth Club, an old church (complete with freedom to roam…

Review: Festival #6

Words: Lissie Day Unfortunately, Festival No.6 came to a rather soggy end. Eighteen tractors towing thousands of cars out of a quagmire wasn’t exactly what festival organisers must have had in mind when they waved us goodbye with their trademark salutation of ‘Be Seeing You’ on Monday morning… The thing is, even after standing in…

Review: Leeds Festival

Words: Rianne Thompson. The Reading and Leeds Festival is an annual marker to the end of the summer, the last of the summer sun or rain to be more realistic. I spent the weekend hardly sleeping or eating accompanied by some incredible music and warm pints, here are some of my highlights… The Thursday night…

Review: Green Man

We took a bit longer getting back from Green Man than expected, both physically and emotionally, but now the fog has cleared, here are our thoughts on a wet and wonderful weekend in the Brecon Beacons. If you read the festival preview, where we hailed the work of the musical programming team, you might expect…

Review: Boardmasters 2016

When a festival requires around twenty hours of travelling, and a round trip of nearly 1000 miles, it sets a certain anticipation level for said festival to be completely brilliant. Fortunately, my first trip to Newquay for Boardmasters 2016 not only lived up to the hype, but made me wonder why I’d never ventured down…

Review: Visions Festival

Festival goers with expectations as high as the sun’s temperature (for that day anyway) hopped on London’s overground to Hackney Central last Saturday – VISIONS was in town! So much more than a bog-standard festival, VISIONS promised a dog show, black metal yoga, street food and a whole host of other weird and wonderful stalls,…

Review: NOS Alive 2016

This years NOS Alive boasted one of if not THE BEST line-ups this summer and in the glorious Lisbon sun it was given quite the setting. Buoyed by football related euphoria, Portugal certainly seemed ready to shrug off any worldly worries and party. Day One Settled in their temporary home in Lisbon’s Bairro Alto Amazing Afternoons

Review: Isle of Wight Festival

Words and photos: Sarah Myles. Isle of Wight 2016 – if ever there was a festival that should have been a week long, this was it (although our livers would probably disagree)…. A less crowded affair than last year (probably due to hoards of festival-goers catching the Euros on the very big screen on site…

Review: Field Day 2016

Words & Images Ruth Kilpatrick. Known for a decade now for its eclectic line-up across expanding stages, Field Day 2016 demonstrated its diverse people pleasing skills once more, with the likes of GOAT, Skepta, Fat White Family, Mabel, Girl Band, Novelist and many more. To celebrate its 10th anniversary Field Day was given the gift…
