What’s it all about, Ducky
Back from Bestival with the usual: a tingly hangover, a memory card full of amazing sounds and images and a head full of, well, amazing sounds and images from a hectic day of DJing and watching some great acts play wonderful music and generally having the most fine of times humanly possible.
On Saturday I played three sets, one on Bestival Radio with my compadre Pete Gooding and a live performance from the main man of ambient folk, James McArthur; one in the now legendary Wishing Tree (house); and one in the totally fabulous Ambient Forest (slow dancing).
A few edited festival highlights: How does it feel… rushing past the main stage as New Order played Blue Monday; Tythe in the Ambient Forest; wearing a unicorn mask while DJing; dancing like a ducky to Greg Wilson; the boy W and his boys in the Wishing Tree; Sleeping in a Tipi with our friends; strong coffee; sunshine and more sunshine; pole dancing to SBTRKT; Dirty Beaches’ short, brutal set; Four Tet in the Psychedelic Worm.
Some pictures (mostly sky) and the two DJ sets are posted here.
