Orbital in Sonic is certainly a curve ball. Anyone check out Sonic last year and want to report back on the sound? 

I checked it out a few times but I really don't like the vibes in that area. It feels so disjointed from the rest of the site. When you have the SE Corner and Arcadia/Pangea you can avoid Silver Hayes and still see amazing dance music. 

That being said, there's still sound bleed between some the stages in the area, and then at others the sound isn't loud enough. It's bizarre. 

If you want to see Orbital I'd just recommend getting there with plenty of time to spare so that you can get inside to a decent spot.

Never been Glasto before so I can't report any previous experience , but I finally saw Orbital at Printworks last weekend and they were unbelievable. Their iconic songs in that venue was just perfection.

(I'd be keen to hear about anyone else who went out in the past week tbh, be it Soup Kitchen or Printworks or wherever. I loved some of the doofs at Bang Face but overall felt very odd about it!)

Went to Jon Hopkins at Bridgewater Hall on Friday, and Secret Garden Rave at Gorilla on Saturday - both seemed pretty full. The atmosphere at Jon Hopkins was truly apocalyptic, genuinely felt like the end of the world with everyone dancing like zombies in a beautiful concert hall.

Secret Garden Rave was pretty standard, everyone seemed to be having a good time and the venue was beautiful.  I don't know if they opened the second room as planned, but the main room was packed at points.  Lots of dancing, lots of smiles and happiness.  It was like nothing was any different.

Some guy told me I look like Fatboy Slim and wanted to shake my hand, but other than that, business as usual there. (Ignore my profile pic, I look much different now so he probably had a point)

NIce take that mate. It's going to be a very, very odd couple of months 

Cheers. It felt necessary to do, I'm seeing a lot of fingers retroactively being pointed at promoters and guilt being attributed to freelance workers, which I don't feel is useful.

That being said, I'm staying the fuck home atm and away from anyone at risk, just in case.

So, it seems that's that.

Bollocks. But we've all known for sometime, eh team?

2021 will be epic.

In the meantime, I've pulled the trigger on Boomtown. so anyone wanting an E/D rave up to some quality psytrance, come and join me (assuming the little viral fucker has buggered off by then*).

Living in hope that late summer clears up and I'll throw my lot into Boomtown as well. 

As much as its gutting and we're all so disappointed, I find it quite difficult to get too despondent given the state of the world right now, as this was inevitable and there is people facing much more testing perils than a music festival being cancelled. 

This is my last summer of freedom before I start my first big boy job in September, so if it all falls into place an August knees up will be a great way to bow out. 

Stay safe and healthy folks

For any of you working from home, or self isolating there's a perfect 7 hour Laurent Garnier set he's posted to pass the time :) :) 
 

 

Thanks for sharing this. Big love to the people posting in this glorious thread. May we dance upon the fields of Worthy Farm, well and healthy, in 2021!

I posted this in the Online Live Gigs thread, but definitely more pertinent here. Nowadays, probably my favorite club here in NYC is streaming some sort of programming every night. Classes and things during the weeknights - the other night was how to properly set up a turntable and cartridge, tonight it's ambient music - and then full on DJ sets during the weekends trying to stick to their normal programming.
