LCD Soundsystem/James Murphy/Despacio

Recommended Posts

I've heard a couple of rumours flying about that LCD Soundsystem or James Murphy or Despacio or some combination of the above might make an appearance this year, but I can't find any evidence to support it. Has anyone heard anything?

No chance of LCD but Despacio is active yeah, they're doing a festival in Barcelona the weekend before Glasto so they could definitely bring it over. And if you're hearing rumours that's a good sign cos I'd love to see it come back.

Yeah Despacio is in London in late May as well. I wonder if they'll roll it out as it's the 50th...tho the impression I'm getting is it's sort of being treated like any other year so far...

Interesting, what kind of rumours?

Replied to this topic on another thread before but I'd be surprised if they do Glasto with Despacio. They're doing 2 x nights at Sonar which is two 8-10 hr sets the week before - the set up is pretty serious and takes a few days to get the tuning right (they've said so in past interviews). Sonar by Night is an indoors festival and the stage they're doing it in (SonarCar) is enclosed.

Whereas last time they did Glastonbury there were also larger issues with the sound bleeding in from other stages. Which I imagine would mean they're hesitant for go through the heavy logistics of shipping a million dollar sound-system up to Somerset and then doing another 3x8-10hr sets. 

That being said, I would love to see them there as Despacio and I wouldn't at all be surprised if they're doing sets not as despacio but just as a b2b or separately.

Stick Murphy and brothers Dewaele on Pangaea, no need for massive queues and expensive kit.

Agreed, although I don't know if vinyl-only 80's Balearic fits with the brief of Pangaea. I'm also not sure if being at the top of a crane is what Murphy et al. meant by taking the focus away from the DJ booth and placing it on the music and punters. 

That does beg an interesting question, where would you prefer to seem them most?

I'm not arsed by all that 2manydjs where ace on Arcadia in 2015 chuck James Murphy in the mix too and it's guaranteed good time. 

Although I'm sure Despacio would be a better experience I wouldn't be the one having it as I'm not going to queue so get em in a big field. Arcadia seems a better fit than iicon or genosys.

Despacio was great... even though it meant going the wastland that is Silver Hayes.2MANYDJs playing the Spider was pretty special too... as was LCD on the Other. I'd see either or both of them  just about anywhere to be honest.

Feel like we should all give James Murphy a guard of honour when he shows up on the farm after his last visit.
