Review: Bestival @ Lulworth Estate (Dorset; Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th August 2018)

Friday The site was nicely spread out, but unlike mega festivals, walking from one side to another did not diminish too much energy or take too long. Unfortunately, the festival’s app didn’t want to show me the 2018 line-up – it instead rubbed in the fact that A Tribe Called…

Review: Club To Club Festival (Turin, Italy – 2nd to 6th November 2016)

WOMAD 2016 Highlights: Saturday

They invited their fans singing “come see us play”. So we did it and enjoyed every single minute of it. Sidestepper brought their Afro-Colombian groove to WOMAD Festival and it was simply “chevere!”   A few minutes later, we witnessed the brilliant 30-year reunion of Songhai – kora king Toumani Diabate with flamenco guitarists…

Review: Late at the Library – Felabration! @ British Library (London, 16th October 2015)
