Hey everyone, hope the climate is agreeable and the going good wherever you are!
Some festival updates for you. First off, the long awaited set-times for Glastonbury… with an added bonus, as Eric will be doing an *extra* Silent Disco set on the Saturday night! (well, really Sunday morning, innit). This extra set will NOT be a regular Kleptones set, but instead it’s looking like it will be a lightning-paced zoom through his digital record box! He’s currently threatening at least 120 tunes at 120 different BPMs in 120 minutes! Will he manage it without falling over? Well, there’s only one way to find out…
So, the set times for Glasto 2011:
Friday 02:30am – East Dance Tent Silent Disco (2hr Full AudioVisual Spectacular)
(That’s Thursday night, obviously!)
Saturday 01:00pm – Dance Village Cubehenge (75min daytime outdoor DJ Set)
Sunday 02:30am – East Dance Tent Silent Disco (2hr Eric special “120×120” DJ Set)
(Again, that’s Saturday night, obviously!)
As with every year, there’s a jolly good chance that either Eric or the whole squad might pop up somewhere else over the weekend – the best bet is to keep your eye on the Twitter feed or the Facebook page to be first in the know!
Not got a ticket for Glastonbury? Well more fool you, but here’s another couple of places we’re going to be hanging out that might tempt you… First up we’re going to be playing at the very first Exstalgic Festival, at Hainault Forest Country Park in North London on Saturday 10th July. It’s billed as a “Collaborative Music Festival”, and knowing some of the crazy minds involved, there’ll be some serious jamming and cross-breeding going on all weekend. We’re going to be playing on the main stage on the Saturday, warming up for a mighty collaboration between DJ Yoda and The Trans-Siberian Marching Band, but will be getting into the spirit and popping up to jam some beats and riffs wherever we get the chance. Could this be the start of the UK version of Bonnaroo? Who knows, but it’s going to be a lot of fun, it’s a stones throw from the city and it’s only £75 for the weekend! – Details here.
Finally we’ll be heading back over to the Netherlands on Sunday 14th August to close the Dance Tent at Zomerparkfeest in Venlo, another ace looking small festival – Details of that here!
Also don’t forget we’re headlining the Saturday night of Mama’s Pride festival, also in those Netherlands tomorrow night, and it’s free! Details here.
In between all of that we’ll be cranking up the Hectic City wheels again, so expect a new flurry of DJ mixes and maybe a few tasters of the two (yes, two!) new albums that we’re currently working on…
Hope to see you in a field sometime soon!
