Right you lot, stop loitering, there’s nothing to see here, and there won;t be for a week or so. We’re off on our holidays. And when we say holidays we’re talking about a little trip to the happiest place on Earth. No, not Disneyland, what’s so happy about that? We’re talking about Bestival. That annual, rare, mix of good music, good people and good times for four whole days.
While we’re there (in what looks like it’s going to be blissful weather) we’ll be checking out he likes of (deep breath) Kavinsky, John Foxx & The Maths, Hot Chip, Justice, New Order, TEED, 2ManyDjs and Soulwax, Orbital, Errors, Gary Numan, Charli XCX, Annie Mac, Four Tet, Fake Blood, AlunaGeorge, The 2 Bears, Psychemagik, Greg Wilson, Gesaffelstein, Miike Snow, Coldcut, Julio Bashmore, Maya Jane Coles, The XX, The Japanese Popstars, Clock Opera, Dan Le Sac and/or Scroobius Pip, The Other Tribe, Major Lazer, De La Soul, Jessie Ware, Two Door Cimena Club, Drums Of Death, Grimes, Toddla T, Factory Floor, Adam fucking Ant, Earth, Wind & fucking Fire, Kevin Saunderson and Inner fucking City and Stevie fucking Wonder! Plus a load more I can’t think of right now.
If you want to keep up with what we are checking out over the weekend we will be live tweeting for The Guardian Music. Catch up with what;s going on right here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/bestival
We’ll probably be back, Wednesday next week, maybe Thursday depending on how broken we are.
If you do find yourselves starved of our nonsense, then we may be pouring drunkenly over our twitter feed, keep up here: @electronicrumor.
I will miss you.
