Parklife Festival 2018 | Skiddle

‘Parklife – Manchester’s finest excuse to embark on 48 hours of booming beats-induced liberation. With retro football tops and Spice World-esque attire in formation, the festival’s 9th edition boasts an ambitious bill – if electronica is your thing, from the chart dominating to the boundary-pushing leftfield, then you’d be hard pressed to find a stronger 2018…

Dot To Dot Festival (Nottingham) | Skiddle

‘It’s unfortunately not uncommon for an inner-city festival to eventually sever ties with independent venues after becoming established, in a commercially driven move towards larger and more open spaces.

You really have no sense of how big…

Boxed In – Interview | Skiddle

Back when the genre was emerging in the 70s/80s it was criticised for being soulless, but its getting harder and harder for people to say that. As a synth-dominant band, how do you make your music evocative? By being honest. I just respond to…
