Hospitality on The Beach: Pirates Code

Hospitality On The Beach Logo

After a sling of successful UK events, we decided it was time to take a break and go on a well deserved holiday, and it’s just around the corner. So, we’re packing our bags and getting our flip-flops and towels ready as we head of to Tisno, Croatia for Hospitality On The Beach!

 

With headline sets from Andy C, London Elektricity, Camo & Krooked and High Contrast, to intimate beach parties that will take you into the night, there is going to be something for absolutely everyone. But, if staying on land isn’t your thing and you fancy yourself a bit of a scurvy sea dog, then we’ve got that covered too with our huge range of boat parties!

However, before you take to the high seas, you will need to check the Hospitality Do’s and Don’ts checklists to ensure we don’t make you walk the plank.

 

DO: Make sure you’ve secured your places by grabbing the tickets you want. (most have sold out already!)

 

DON’T: Plan a mutiny and shanghai one of the boats. Whilst your pirate swashbuckling skills may be on point, nobody wants to see S.P.Y being thrown overboard just so you can plunder the Croatian seas, and maybe have a go at DJing yourself.

 

DO: Make sure you wear suitable clothes! Don’t turn up in your favourite sweater or they’ll have to bring the boat back due to you overheating… Snorkels, however, are welcome!

 

DON’T: Use that snorkel as an excuse to jump off the boat and swim around. One, the boat may not notice and you’ll be left drifting around the Mediterranean, hoping a Croatian fishing boat will pick you up, and two, it would just be a bit silly really wouldn’t it.

DO: Bring sun cream! Boats aren’t famed for their shade so you want to bring plenty of sunblock to avoid looking like a rave lobster.

 

DON’T: Bring an umbrella! Whilst you are going to want suncream, please do not to create your own shade. You’ll end up damaging your fellow ravers and should a big gust of wind come along, Tisno will finally have its very own Mary Poppins (or the fisherman from earlier, depending on wind direction)!

 

DO: Make sure you have any medication you’re going to need. If you are prone to seasickness then make sure you have the right remedies to get the maximum out of your boat party.

 

DON’T: Turn up late. The boats aren’t going to wait for you and don’t even for a second think you’ll be able to rag out there on a jetski…

 

DO: Bring your A-Game. These parties are going to be rowdy so be prepared to bruk out. 

 

DON’T: Try and start a moshpit. These boats are modestly sized and if you think it’s going to be a great idea to turn the intimate boat party on the crystal clear waters into a tornado of discomfort and frustration, think again. We’re all here to have fun, not at the expense of anyone else.

DO: Bring your tender! Don’t be that guy stuck on the boat with no money for drinks and water. 

 

DON’T: Make your mate walk the plank for not downing his 40th jager bomb of the holiday. Even if it was successful, he’s probably in no fit state to be swimming. 

 

DO: Bring a little waterproof disposable camera. Not only will this allow you to leave your phone safely on the shore, but you’ll also have a heap of photos to stick around your room and remind you OF THE BEST AFTERNOON EVER!

 

DON’T : Skip buying tickets and instead buy a rubber dinghy in hope of discreetly boarding one of the parties. Let’s be realistic here you’re probably not in the Olympic rowing team and will probably end up spinning in circles whilst the entire festival looks on in bewilderment. Plus it’s inevitable one of you will fall off and have you ever tried getting back in those things? It’s likely you will all be left bobbing up and down watching that €20 float off into the distance…

 

DO: Have fun! We’ve created these for you to make the most out of your drum and bass holiday. So lap up the sun, feel the gentle swaying of the boat and go crazy to the music we all love!

 

We hope this helps all of you to get your sea legs back and ready to rock the boat (quite literally). We’ll see you soon! Also, please don’t litter in the sea.

Bristol BBQ: What you need to know!

unnamed It’s that time of year again, when the Hospitality BBQ rolls into Bristol town, for burgers and basslines. The lineup is made up of Hospital Records finest including their brand new signing Kings of the Rollers, whilst True Playaz DJ Hazard, will be this years special guest. Not only is the line up set to be a storm, the BBQ is once again held at the notorious Motion, polled as one of the very best in the world. Excited yet?

We are thrilled to welcome back the Jungle Jam team who are bringing the likes of DJ Marky, Randall, Benny Page and the infamous S.P.Y B2B Nu:tone jungle set. This will be the perfect warm up of what’s to come at Hospitality’s first festival overseas Hospitality on the beach, just minus the sand and the sea but hopefully not the sun!

As well as top quality D+B we also like to provide our ravers with the finest grub, and seeing as it is a BBQ and all, it’s extremely vital that we provide the best food and drink vendors to fuel your dancing feet and excite your taste buds. However, incase your venturing into the city before or after the event, make sure you check these diamonds out.

BEST SPOT FOR GRUB

EDIT

unnamed-2

If music and food is the dream combo, make sure you drop into Bristol’s newly opened Edit Bar on Cheltenham Road. As well as delicious food, Edit has a dozen different sound systems dotted all over the bar to create a unique experience for your ears as well as your tongue. If you want a switch from the burgers and hotdogs, too cool for school Edit provides flashy asian small plates and an extensive menu of alcoholic beverages.

BEST FOR THE HANGOVER:

THE BRISTOLIAN

unnamed

Locals have named it the best fry up in Bristol, which is all you need when you wake up with a banging headache and are craving some serious salt. Not only does it provide a meaty, veggie or vegan fry up, it also has some other appetising breakfast options like Belgian waffles and breakfast ciabatta sandwiches. However, if all that raving got ya good and a normal fry up just isn’t enough, order their famous Bristolian challenge, a HUGE version of their original fry up which many have failed to finish.

 (ONE OF THE) BEST BURGER(s):

BURGER THEORY

unnamed-3

With the number of burger restaurants it is impossible to narrow it down, however, Burger Theory is definitely up there! It has a menu packed full of choice and each burger is even more packed with fillings! This is the joint with no limit and the perfect place to visit if you want a mammoth burger brimmed with the wildest of fillings. It is based on Saint Stephens Street just around the corner from the Bristol Hippodrome. If you do drop in, The Sheriff and The Down n’ Dirty are absolute winners.

BEST PLACE FOR A TIPPLE:

THE LOVE INN

unnamed-1

Chill in the day then party at night. That’s how The Love Inn rolls. By 11 o’clock it turns into a club which holds some of the grooviest nights in the city. As well as a wide variety of spirits, wines and beers, the love inn also has their own versions of classic cocktails which are not to be missed (especially their glorious ‘Rum Tickler ’). Whether you’re going there to warm up for the main event, or for the heir of the dog, this place will ignite your inner party animal with its upbeat atmosphere and funky surrounding.

I think it’s safe to say that you just cannot beat burgers, beer and bass in the Bristol sun. So get your skates on and grab a ticket now to avoid missing out on this spectacular day. Get involved, get your pals involved and get your taste buds involved otherwise you’ll be missing out BIG time (and you know it).

Logistics grew up on a self-prescribed musical diet made up of equal parts guitar-based compositions down tempo efforts and finally acquired a taste for Drum + Bass through the Full Cycle “Music Box” LP. The younger brother of Nu:Tone, Matt Gresham a.k.a Logistics, has gone on to become one of Hospital’s most prolific producers. These two brothers in arms make for a deadly combination behind the turntables!
