More than 12,000 drum & bass fans descended on London’s Finsbury Park when Hospitality in the Park returned on Saturday, September 23rd. Live and DJ sets included London Elektricity headlining with a 16-piece band, Roni Size marking the 20th anniversary of New Forms plus Fred V & Graffix. Ann McManus was there.
Arriving at Finsbury Park with a lovely new yoga mat still strapped to my back from the morning’s festivities at Wanderlust 108, I thought security would be a nightmare. Quite the opposite. The lovely guard who checked me in wanted to open up my yoga mat holder just to find the label so she could try and buy one similar and we had a but of a natter about yoga. In combination with complete lack of queue, this was a brilliant start to the day.
