However, Shy FX’s shout out of ‘f**k the rain, we’re having a rain dance’ seemed to send everyone into some sort of animalistic rave… Continue reading >

In The Field: Hospitality @ Lovebox

Despite the rain Hospitality at Lovebox Festival in Victoria Park, London was a huge success on Saturday! The Wah Wah 45s Soundsystem kicked things off at around midday, with Starkey and Sigma following up before the first Hospital artist greeted the stage at 3pm with the Gresham brothers performing one of their impressive back-to-back sets; not only was it Nu:Tone and Logistics on stage though, also present was Natalie Williams and MC AD.
