Neverworld 2018 Live Review


Neverworld brought out the bright and the beautiful over a sun-drenched three days on John Darling's Farm in Kent. In now the twelfth year of what was formerly known as LeeFest, Neverworld and its 'three immersive realms' played host to a plethora of acts in a variety of venues to the delight of a free-spirited and totally chilled out crowd. 

Neverworld 2018 Live Review

The balance of headline acts and up and coming musical talent mixed with a sense of exuberant theatrical panache obviously appeals to everyone's need to let go, dress up and have some unadulterated fun. There were more mermaids and mermen spotted across the weekend than you'd expect to see at a Disney convention as well as the odd kilt, Banana Man, King Neptune and lots of crocodiles. There were hen parties, painted dogs in pirate outfits and pimped up kids' festival wagons all over the farm. Parasols were de rigueur, glitter a must, something neon a necessity and clothing, at times, seemingly just an optional extra.

The three day festival started on Thursday as people eased themselves into the weekend with an opening party topped out by a performance from Hollie Cook. There was a carnival atmosphere in the circus tent right from the get go with GIRLI giving a lively, somewhat haphazard, set that included new song 'Pink' as well as her better known songs 'Day Month Second' and 'Hot Mess'. Childcare were up next with Ed looking like he'd just stepped off a five-a-side pitch just in time to perform. An altogether tighter performance ensued from the London-based four-piece with a great delivery of 'Magazines' as well as the vaguely reggae infused 'Put Down Your Pen'.

Clean Bandit

Clean Bandit's Grace Chatto has been in ''shock'' since Neil Milan announced he's quit the band.

The electronic music group, which is now comprised of Jack Patterson, Luke Patterson and Grace, were ''sad'' to learn they were going to be one man down after their violinist - who is also known as Neil Amin-Smith - took to social media to broadcast his departure.

Speaking to the Metro newspaper, Grace said: ''He's been thinking about it for a long time. It was a shock that he actually left, so said.''

Ivor Novello Awards 2015: Sam Smith, Clean Bandit And George Ezra All Nominated


Ivor Novello Awards Sam Smith George Ezra Clean Bandit

Some of the biggest British stars of the last year are in the running for 2015’s Ivor Novello Awards. Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’, George Ezra’s ‘Budapest’ and Clean Bandit’s ‘Rather Be’ are all nominated for the most played song of the past year.

The annual awards, which are now in their 60th year, are exclusively voted for by songwriters, making it a rare example of musicians being recognised by their peers instead of by the public. ‘The Ivors’ is a comparatively short and exclusive list of categories, with only three nominations in each.

Clean Bandit Dismiss Kasabian Insults As "Jealousy"


Clean Bandit Kasabian Serge Pizzorno Brit Awards

British chart stars Clean Bandit have responded to comments made by rockers Kasabian in which they cast aspersions on their songwriting credibility.

Serge Pizzorno, guitarist and chief songwriter of the Leicester quartet, told The Independent last week that he was displeased at the group’s total lack of recognition at the upcoming Brit Awards. Despite scoring a fourth UK Number 1 album last year with 48:13, Kasabian received no nominations at all, which Pizzorno described as a “conspiracy” to “shut rock ‘n’ roll out.”

Years And Years Aren't 'Precious' About Releasing Free Downloads


Years & Years Sam Smith Clean Bandit

Hot on the heels of their recent tour supporting chart sensations Sam Smith and Clean Bandit, UK band Years & Years prepare to embark on their own sell-out headline tour in February 2015, while attempting to finish their highly anticipated debut album.

Years & Years have a very busy year ahead of them

Years & Years first started creating a buzz back in 2012 with their debut single 'I Wish I Knew', and while their unique brand of synthpop is truly a breath of fresh air, so is their attitude towards the music industry, having released a series of free downloads alongside their singles in recent times. 'We're precious about what we make but we're not that precious about the internet and stuff because I think that's just the way it is, and it's kind of cool. 'I kind of enjoy that', says keyboardist Emre Turkmen, about giving away their music for free. 'You want people to hear it', frontman Olly Alexander says in agreement.

Leeds Festival 2014 - Live Review


It came, It went, It conquered as per. Leeds Festival 2014 was a real pinnacle for this year's UK live music, cramming it's masses into the colossus fields of Bramham Park, this year's Leeds Festival was a true menace of a machine. From strolling the sights and stalls of the relatively tame arena, to hiking through the foothills of Red camp and afar, the beast of Leeds Festival was out in full glamour this year. Not only for the sheer size and scale of the glorified playground, nor for the big bad names it captured upon its stages, but purely the immense and sometimes overwhelming atmosphere of Leeds Festival is what attracts the crowds in their droves - (Each and EVERY year).

Leeds Festival 2014 - Live Review

This year's line-up, though transparent in parts, boasted an array of big names and must sees. From Gerrard Way's premier solo show, right the way through to Macklemore's fur coat - teenage girl-screaming onstage antics. All considered, It is fair to say Leeds festival caters to the masses, though in doing so, often leaving the fringes of those masses at somewhat of a loose-end. Fear no-more, as this year with 10 arena stages and a dozen campsite venues, attendants waved farewell to mud-mooching moments of waiting around and embarked on the northern event of the year. With Oxfam blazers, slush puppy pleasantries and a number of near 24-hour rave spots all been thrown around, It was hard to find even a moment for the annual carbon monoxide poisoning - plastic bag burning ritual  around the camp fire. 

Without further ado, we present to you this year's top live sets and why they really made this year what it was.
