UNITED FESTIVAL

I still haven’t got my ticket! Payday is but days away and I am itching to bag my slot and embrace – no, UNITE with my fellow ravers. Really, I should posting this after I have purchased, just in case I am completely shooting myself in the foot and the last of the tickets officially sell out. I will take my chances with music destiny, I will be unselfish. I will share the love!

This is set to be a banging festival. Truth be told, I hadn’t actually heard of this one untill several weeks ago. I suspect I should be ashamed of myself for not having heard of it, but there we go – it did only debut last year. I heard it through the grapevine, checked out the line up and thought OH MY RAVEGOD! I need to go to this. Pied Piper? DJ Luck and MC Neat? Grooverider?! Yes please! Take me back to the good old days! Who really wants to be sitting on the sofa on a Sunday afternoon, watching Time Team over an unwanted plate of brussel sprouts, longing for some filthy old school rave beats? Not this Sunday the 13th of September. Not on my watch!

Tickets are sadly no longer going for a mere £20. Last release tickets are now £40. But whats an extra £20 for an action packed day celebrating over 25 years of British rave culture, with over 150 acts and 8 arenas – all in one field?

Please save me a ticket! Possible review pending…FINGERS, TOES AND LIMBS CROSSED!

United Festival Line Up

Yes! Now tracks like this is exactly why I started blogging about music. Absolutely loving ‘Pains 4 U’ by CASH+DAVID and have had it on repeat for a while now. Thank you very much to Partisan PR for sharing this one with me.

Cash+David are streaming their new single, ‘Pains 4 U’, via The Fader. Featuring a guest verse from rising Atlanta MC Rome Fortune, this track is due for release through Columbia Records on October 30th, 2015. Speaking about the track, Liz Lawrence (David) and Tim Ross (Cash) say: ‘Pains 4 U is a hypnotic repent – a call for redemption after a colossal loss. It’s a mantra of contrition with the desire to pay off a debit of pain’.

I am guilty of ignoring the lyrics of most songs, but you simply cannot ignore the message behind ‘Pains 4 U’. I think this one that will resonate with many. Irresistable beats with equally iridescent lyrics, this is a class new single for CASH+DAVID! RRR wishes them all the best for the upcoming release in October.

Raider Photography – Groover Armada @ Lovebox Festival

If you ever get the chance to see Groove Armada live, you must go immediately! The Groove Armada set at Lovebox 2015 was a truly epic and utterly unforgettable experience! Crowd surfing on inflatable beer bottles, ridiculous levels of confetti, a heaving bass, incredible live Alladinesque performers…this has to be up there for one of the best festival gigs I have been to. Five star!

Snowbombing Festival

With only twenty minutes to take advantage of a secret earlybird booking link, I frantically scrolled the numerous hotels, battled failing internet and horrendous phone signal…and managed to book an awesome room at the Hotel Forsthaus zum Kramerwirt, in the Mayrhofen centre, for a mere £125 deposit!

logoSnowboardingI am beyond excited! Snowbombing promoters summarise this event epicly: “A festival filled with fresh air, blue skies, black runs & white-hot parties… A week-long whirlwind of world class DJs and bands, in the idyllic alpine setting of Mayrhofen, Austria. Days are spent skiing, boarding, enjoying music on mountain top stages or relaxing in the spa of a luxury hotel. Nights deliver cutting edge performances in unique venues, from a sky high igloo, to an enchanted forest clearing. Regarded by many as… The Greatest Show on Snow. Mystical. Musical. Without Equal…”

Artic Discos, Road Trips, Fancy Dress Street Parties, Backcountry & Forest Parties – can you really get a festival better than this?

Now with 7 long months to dream of snowcapped mountains, rooftop hot tubs and five whole days of music heaven, all that is left to decide now is whether to Ski or Board!?
