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!

Tickets for this event can be purchased on the following websites:

United Festival Line Up

Without a doubt, Disclosure’s album “Settle” is the best album release of 2013. With a host of guest stars featuring on the album including: Jesse Ware, AlunaGeorge, Jamie Woon, Sam Smith, Ed McFarlane of Friendly Fires and Eliza Doolittle, this album is far from the simple deep house collection I was expecting. Despite their distinctive sound, the duo have highlighted their flare for incorporating a versatile array of styles from blurred synth chords, early-house baselines, classic beats of two-step garage, to contemporary sounds of current dance music, and this is what makes this debut an absolute winner with the masses. As noted in NME “Disclosuremania is clearly about to sweep the nation” and I am ready to be swept along with it!
