Roadburn: Essential Sounds 26.10.18

October 26, 2018

This week’s playlist comes courtesy of Holy Roar head honcho, Alex Fitzpatrick. We were somewhat busy pulling together all the bits and bobs for yesterday’s announcement, so we turned to one of the UK’s most exciting independent labels for playlist inspiration.

The Friday of Roadburn at the Hall of Fame venue will be given over to five of Holy Roar’s bands – but there is a lot more talent jammed into the label’s roster that we simply couldn’t squeeze into that little room. Thankfully, Alex is on hand to school us all about the diverse array of acts that the label has been working with recently.

Alex comments:

“We are hugely proud and honoured to be part of Roadburn 2019 – it is a festival we have all greatly admired for years, so our participation is truly ‘bucket list’ stuff. Here is a playlist representing where we are at as a label and what we do! We hope you enjoy it.”

Never Mind The Hype Roadburn 2018 Documentary

July 20, 2018

This year – during the four days of madness that was Roadburn 2018 – the team at Never Mind The Hype set about documenting the festival. They spoke to the artists that helped make the festival such an incredible experience for us, for them and for everybody that participated in the festival.  The resulting footage was pored over and edited in to an (almost) half hour documentary that captures the spirit of the 2018 edition of the festival.

Our suggestion is that you grab yourself a brew (tea, or something stronger if you prefer!) and relive those four fantastic days back in April.

Huge thanks to Waldo, Ingmar and their team at NMTH!
