Standon Calling Festival
August 3-5

Standon Lordship, Hertfordshire

So, summer has finally arrived fashionably late, albeit it quite in style with temperatures here in Brighton set to peak at 33 celsius on Friday. We hate to rub it in, but that’s hotter than Ibiza. Who needs the white isle?! So if you’re not heading there this summer, don’t despair, there’s still plenty on for you. One highlight is Standon Calling in Hertfordshire. This three day boutique festival features a diverse and brilliant line up, with Beardyman, Shy FX, Julio Bashmore, DJ EZ, Marcus Nasty and Toddla T providing some of the highlights.

Weekend tickets are £99, two day tickets £78, one day tickets £39 and the Friday one day ticket is £25.

The event also features extra activities such as a themed treasure hunt (interactive game for adults and children), a swimming pool (the only UK festival with a pool), Chillout area, Massage, Art, Poetry, Comedy and more.

Think of it as being like Latitude, but with a focus on dance music rather than Indie/Folk.

Three-day boutique festival 40 minutes outside of London. Expect the unexpected, with Beardyman, Death in Vegas, Fat Freddy’s Drop, !!! (Chk Chk Chk), Field Music, Casiokids, BIGKids, King Charles, Crazy P, Trojan Soundsystem, Cosmo, Greg Wilson, Shy FX, Toddla T, Julio Bashmore, Kode9, DJ EZ, Oneman, Marcus Nasty, Kode9 and many more on the lineup, and lots more to do besides!

February 28, 2013

There’s definitely some classic house vibes here in the synths, the Planet Perfecto influence is pretty obvious. But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
