Gosh, I had just finished writing the piece on St. Vincent coming to the Vida Festival when, bam! another e-mail waiting in my inbox announcing the news that Calexico are also joining the Vida Festival next year. Mini-piece on it, here. Tbh, no idea who they are, so I’ll have to do quite a lot of research on them if I intend to appreciate their concert a bit.
Great news to check your inbox and see the announcement of the addition of St. Vincent to the Vida Festival line-up. As it seems I’ll be in charge of covering this fest next year, here‘s the piece I’ ve just written on it.
Yet again, it seems that I will be updating Hipsterian’s website with the Vida Festival 2018 announcements. This time, Franz Ferdinand as part of the festival’s fifth edition line-up. Only this weekend I got the accommodation as an advanced Christmas present so, yes, I’ll certainly be attending the fest without having to suffer any of those transport ordeals I went through last year. More on this to come soon!
Having two jobs and trying to be a collaborator for online magazines at the same time makes it a bit impossible to be able to be everywhere when required. That’s why an overlapping meeting of one of my jobs is what prevented me from attending Desert Mountain Tribe‘s gig as a press member. Darn! Instead, I had to go with just the announcement of the release of their latest videoclip and of their concert on September 14 at Sala Sidecar. Oh well, next time…
Scarcely had my last review on the Vida Festival 2017 appeared published when I was already being asked to write about the confirmation of the first act (some Nick Mulvey that I’ll have to do some research into) and a little summary on this year’s festival attendance as well as the release of the first tickets for next year at a reduced price here. Does this mean I’ll be covering the Vida Festival as a press member? No idea, but I do know that I already have my ticket for next year, and that I’ll be renting a hotel room for those days, seeing the deplorable experience I had this year with the Monbus coaches.
It seems that Parets del Vallès will be holding the Festival Parc de la Linera for the third time, event about which I wrote this little piece for Hipsterian Circus. Although this year this festival doesn’t seem to have any well-known acts (yet), it has welcomed names that are now rather known in the present local music scene, such as Cala Vento and The Crab Apples, the latter participating in this year’s Primavera Sound. You never know where a festival like Parc de la Linera will surprise you or not, so it can certainly be a good chance to discover a new band which might enjoy some success in the (near) future.
