Went to ‘London Electronic Dance’ Festival on Saturday at Victoria Park in Bethnal Green. Saw Shy FX, Friendly Fires, Goldfrapp, Aphex Twin and Leftfield.
The music was cool as was the weather, we had a sprinkle of rain with sun and rainbows to add the mix.
It was a great night, interesting people, met someone I went to primary school with and haven’t seen since. What are the chances of that happening. Some happy go lucky aussie made a bee line for me trying to chat me up then became friendly with my boyfriend and went to see Aphex Twin together. Discovered he was a panda who likes eating bamboo.
People there were definately there who grew up with the music, there were no teeny boppers but there were mostly late twenties, thirties plus crowd. My sis reminisced during the drum and base sets from her rave days. We got wet during Friendly Fires, sang along to Goldfrapp, danced and cheered to the heavy beats of Aphex Twin and Leftfield.
