What’s in your diary for summer 2019?

What’s in your diary for summer 2019?

Mine’s starting to fill up and with a warm continental breeze billowing at our window, this month’s Drowned in Sound show featured our guide to the months ahead. We covered all of the big festivals, London’s major events, some upcoming gig picks and a few perpetual songs of the summer.

Danielle Perry and I hosted a 120 minute selection of tunes about everything from tacos to Orkney by Robyn, Flying Lotus, Tomberlin, Teirra Whack, Richard Hawley, Africa Express and Hannah Cohen, bookended by beautiful pieces by Philip Glass and Erland Cooper.

As ever, our monthly show is archived on Mixcloud and I’ve popped a “Sum Meh 2019” playlist on Spotify if you’d rather skip our blathering about must attend festivals, the global vinyl congress, seeing Four Tet in the belly of 40k lights and more.

Mulatu Astatke
Theon Cross

Hey Collosus!
Sons of Kemet

Seeing Tomberlin that you mentioned in your original post on Friday.

I’ve loads of the usual small gigs booked over summer. The only big summer stadium concert is (what’s left of) The Eagles next month at Wembley Stadium with my Dad.

Green Man in August

Colours of Ostrava festival in July, will be seeing:

The Cure
Olafur Arnalds
Calypso Rose
Cory Henry & the Funk Apostles
Tank and the Bangas
Dakh Daughters
Bo NIngen
47 Soul

Quite pleasingly all over the place

Nothing else booked yet

Working a lot from home, but mostly my own various books, drama scripts and music I’m writing so it might well be the best job I’ve ever had. Fingers crossed.

Not sure about holidays yet, sometimes I fancy doing something audaciously -1 million indie points like Ibiza, but been invited to Ortiguera festival in Galicia, Spain (which apparently is the world’s biggest showcase of Celtic music.) Have any DiSers been?

Body & Soul
Tame Impala in Dublin
Kelburn Garden Party
Camera Obscura in Glasgow
Parades de Coura

If anyone’s at All Points East for Bon Iver on Sunday I’m DJing early doors in the JagerHaus.
