Latest update from Festival Flyer

New post added at Festival Flyer – Boardmasters 2017 – REVIEW – Firstly, I’d like to take a moment for the people of Boardmasters who had their makeup and mirrors taken away on entry. We all thought there was some sort of clause to the “No Glass” rule that would allow for L’Oreal True Match – but evidently not. I like to think the excessive glitter around the festival was due to it being used as an alternative.

Boardmasters Festival is the biggest music festival in Cornwall, with up to 50,000 people in attendance this year. What attracted me to Boardmasters other than the lineup was how they incorporated one of the most popular sports in Cornwall – surfing. The Cornish surf is experienced at Fistral Beach, one of the top surfing spots in mple journey to escape the typical festival landscape of tents and mud to a picturesque sandy beach with pro surfing competitions, yoga classes, BMX/Skate ramp, a beach bar and pthe region, with frequent shuttle buses from the main camp & arena at Watergate Bay. It’s a silenty of food venues. The stage at Fistral Beach mainly hosted alternative reggae acts, such as Dreadzone, Congo Natty & Slightly Stoopid, adding to the chilled-out vibe the area aims to provide.

At Watergate Bay, however, the tone is completely different. The clifftop music festival provides views over the Cornish coast from almost anywhere in the main arena, most notably the Corona SunSets stage, and is separated into two parts: The Main Arena, where you’ll find the Main Stage, Unleashed Stage, Samsung’s Hypercube, House of Marley & Corona SunSets; and also the Land of Saints, home to the Land of Saints Stage, The View Stage (hosting acts such as Natty, Sen Felu and Off Bloom), The Wild Oyster Restaurant (hosted by Lee Skeet), Funderdome, Wellbeing Area & Keg & Pasty.

Friday at Boardmasters was headlined by Two Door Cinema Club, with performances from acts such as The Flaming Lips, Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls, Giggs, Newton Faulkner, Kurupt FM, Slaves and Lucy Rose. TDCC Members Alex Trimble & Kevin Baird had their flight to Cornwall cancelled, forcing them to embark on a 6-hour train journey to the festival and “exhaust all downloaded Netflix shows”. It gave them some material on stage, however, as the band discussed their favourite shows to binge-watch. Glaswegian gunge-pop duo Honeyblood gave an energy-fuelled performance at the Land of Saints stage, with front woman Stina Tweeddale introducing their hit “Babes Never Die” by addressing the crowd, “Are you all here with your best friend? I wrote this song about drinking tequila with my best friend.” Later, Lucy Rose took to the same stage to deliver a soothing set and charmed the crowd, playing numbers such as “Shiver” and “Middle of the Bed”. Rose introduced “Second Chance” as “a song I wrote about looking back at photos of yourself. My great-aunt was looking through photos of herself at Christmas saying, “Look how lovely I was!” but she didn’t know it at the time. It struck a chord with me”.

Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls brought all their energy to the main stage and performed to an extensive crowd – Frank also took a moment midway through his set to talk about SGFW (Safe Gigs For Women), the initiative established by regular gig goers with the aim of creating a safer environment for women at gigs, and told his audience, “Communities look out for each other” before singing “Eulogy” in Cornish.

Saturday was headlined by prominent 90s band Jamiroquai, and also featured performances from The Vaccines, Lethal Bizzle, Laura Mvula, Kate Nash, Jake Bugg & Wild Beasts.

The Vaccines proved once again to be one of the best live bands to date, with thousands joining in with their hits including the most unironic sing-along to “Wetsuit” I’ve ever heard.

Kate Nash’s performance at the festival was amidst her Made of Bricks 10th Anniversary tour, therefore her set-list was filled with feel-good throwback hits such as “Mouthwash”, “Birds” and the best version of “Dickhead” in which Nash called out numerous high-profile people including Donald Trump, Theresa May and Piers Morgan. Nash included two tracks from her new EP “Agenda” and “My Little Alien”, written for her dog, and culminated the vibrant set with “Foundations”.

Sunday at Boardmasters was not the day of rest but rather the day of reckoning. The headliners were Alt-J with performances from Stormzy, Ziggy Marley, JP Cooper, Fickle Friends, PINS & Idris Elba.

The calibre of acts on the Main Stage on Sunday meant that the huge crowd almost never wavered throughout the day, with a large number present for Ziggy Marley’s incredible set and tribute to his father, as well as a fantastic number of mosh pits for Stormzy (which he initiated most of). Stormzy’s performance of “100 Bags” with an image his mother on the screen behind him was the highlight of his set, along with “Cigarettes and Cush” & “Shut Up”. Alt-J closed the festival with an incredible performance and their fan-favoured light shows, bringing Boardmasters Festival to its end and taking us into the night.

Despite the variety of alcohol available throughout the festival, including Corona & Cornish Orchards, it’s no surprise to me that my attentions drifted toward something a bit homelier (and worth the money). My best find was Daffy’s Gin, named for the goddess of gin and crafted from juniper, coriander seeds, cassia bark as well as Lebanese mint and rare variety lemons, who had quaint stall paired with Fever-Tree tonic. This may be one of my favourite gins this year, and I preferred the beverage with Fever-Tree Elderflower Tonic and a mint leaf garnish – look at me, Mum! I’m a gin connoisseur.

Like any festival, the food wasn’t cheap and I prioritised alcohol. Due to this, I didn’t try as much as I would have liked to, but there was one place that I did return to on multiple occasions. A popular dessert stall at many UK festivals, Pan-n-Ice deliver frozen desserts in a new way and were probably the most delicious, weird ice-cream rolls I’ve had; I’m getting hungry writing about them so I’m just going to stop and insert pictures taken by people who didn’t wolf down their desserts straight away

Other notable food vendors include Black Pig Catering: Chorizo & Halloumi (the burgers are to die for) & Los Churros Amigos (I would’ve consumed that Belgian chocolate sauce through a straw). Also, not at Watergate Bay but nested in Newquay’s town centre is Concho Lounge – the food is affordable d danelicious and you will thank me.

Boardmasters Festival is definitely something for all festival-goers to try and is a nice transition from the usual weekend of getting drunk in a field and catching ticks (as well as other things). I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it, although if I were to return I’d definitely get more involved in the surfing side of things. Cornwall is beautiful and I honestly wish every music festival could be situated in such a place.

Time for me to sleep for 4 weeks.

Ahead of its fifth anniversary on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th September, boutique house and techno festival The Social has now added a host of names to its 2017 line-up. With an already stellar selection of names announced during phase one - including The Martinez Brothers, Black Coffee, Guy Gerber, and Carl Cox - phase two sees the likes of Nina Kraviz and Heidi join a fellowship of leading lights from the underground scene. Joining Nina in the brand new Fabric hosted stage ‘The Barn’ will be Terry Francis and Berghain resident, Function.

With Resistance also announced to host the Meadow stage, Monika Kruse and Tristan Ingram will join proceedings, with fellow craft masters Santé & Sidney Charles, Bill Patrick and Nick Curly set to play the brand new Caravan stage - the festival’s outdoor fixture which will be fitted with state of the art production and sound. Local lad Rob Cockerton and techno favourite Spencer Parker complete the phase two line-up, joining already confirmed acts such as Sasha & John Digweed as The Social Festival elevates itself to one of this year’s most highly anticipated events.

Event Details:
Friday 29th & Saturday 30th September
Kent County Showground

After the success of this year’s Winter Social and the brand new Colombia and Mexico ventures in March, The Social Festival and its founder Nic Fanciulli has now unveiled the first wave of names for its fifth-anniversary edition. Set to round off the summer season, The Social will return to Maidstone this September on Friday 29th & Saturday 30th and promises to fire on all cylinders across the festival’s finessed sound system.

Festival curator Nic Fanciulli explains:

“We couldn’t have made it 5 years without each and every one of you… expect some big surprises, some even bigger production and a huge lineup. I can’t wait to show you what we have in store - let’s celebrate the birthday together”

Close affiliate Carl Cox heads a fellowship of leading lights from the underground scene, and will return to The Social for yet another social gathering of the best and boldest DJs. Joining Carl is a host of house and techno pioneers that have each have spent the best part of the last decade mastering their craft. The Martinez Brothers, Black Coffee, Jackmaster, Guy Gerber and Cassy are amongst those confirmed, while for the party purists come two UK playmakers, old friends and partners from the heyday to today: Sasha & John Digweed. Matchups continue with Apollonia, the almighty trio of Frenchmen Dyed Soundorom, Dan Ghenacia and Shonky. Butch, Emmanuel Satie, Adriatique and D’Julz complete a textbook affair down to the letter, accumulating depths and decades of experience as The Social Festival itself levels up to the big league.

VegfestUK Brighton 2018

Mar 24, 11:00am - Mar 25, 5:00pm

Brighton Centre
Kings Rd
Brighton,  BN1 2GR Map

VegfestUK returns to the South Coast after 9 fabulous years at one of the nation’s biggest concentrations of vegan food and products in Brighton. In 2018, there will be a slight makeover of featured areas to go along with the usual vibrant mix of stalls and culinary delights, and we are so excited to introduce a whole new world of vegan delights to everybody looking for more vegan options at our first event of 2018 at Brighton.

NEW featured areas will include The Veganuary reunion party on the Sunday, with Veganuary participants, staff, ambassadors, friends of the campaign involved – the party will be open to attendees of Brighton Vegfest too.

Returning to the Saturday part of the show is The FxEctive Factor competition with a range of talented vegan musicians and activists pitting their wits against each other in the spirit of showcasing the unique talents we’ve got in the UK vegan community right now.

Also making their debuts at VegfestUK Brighton 2018 are a trio of newly themed talks rooms, namely The Vegan Academy, with a diverse range of topics on veganism for everyone at various stages of their journeys towards veganism, followed by a couple of talks rooms on the benefits of Plant-Based Diets, one focused on Optimum Performance and the other focused on Optimum Health.

The Vegan Comedy Festival, which was introduced back in 2015 when VegfestUK made its first return to the modern, sleek and spacious Brighton Centre, will once again be a 2-day festival featuring some of the most original vegan comedians in the country.

Other exciting areas not to be missed include the Cookery Demos, the Mature Zone, the Kids Area, the Stage, plus more TBA.

Of course, don’t miss the huge collection of around 230 stalls packed full of some of the best vegan products in the market, on top of 19 caterers serving a mouthwatering vegan menu at what is expected to be a very busy show.

Advance tickets will cost £7 per day and £10 for the whole weekend, plus booking fees, whilst tickets on the door will cost £10 for adults and £5 for concessions. Kids under 16 get free entry as long as they are accompanied by adults. Advance tickets will be available to buy in January 2018.
