Watch Under A Strobe Lit Sky for a Festival Fix
Industry insiders discuss what makes music festies magical
“Without festivals the world would be a much duller place.” So says Bristol-based DJ Eats Everything in a new documentary produced by Pioneer DJ and DJsounds.
With footage from Glastonbury, Snowbombing, BPM, KappaFutur, Robot Heart at Burning Man and more, Under A Strobe Lit Sky examines what makes festivals so popular with contributions from leading industry figures and artists.
Glastonbury’s Emily Eavis describes Orbital headlining in 1994 as a “seminal moment” for the festival, with David Levy, partner and co-head of the London Music Team, William Morris Electronic adding: “It was the beginning of Glastonbury’s love affair with all things electronic, which to this day is vast.”
With ADE responsible for an extra €60 million into Amsterdam, the film also looks at the economic impact of festivals and the rise of festival tourism. And snippets from a Nervo festival set aside, the soundtrack gets a thumbs up too.
