PROUD TO BE A CONTINUED SPONSOR OF #jerseylive
“It’s that time of year again folks, when the Channel Islands’ biggest celebration of music returns to our Trinity home, and as we enter our second decade of festival fun, all the ingredients are there for a vintage Jersey Live year. Despite the many tweaks and changes to the format, layout and overall flavour of the festival over the years, one constant throughout the lifetime of Jersey Live has been our commitment to celebrating great British artists, and many of those have made the trip to our island each year – some, like Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, Madness or The Prodigy, have arrived here as ready made superstars. Others, like Kasabian, Jake Bugg, Foals and Tinie Tempah, for example, have given the Jersey Live audience an early glimpse at their big-stage credentials before going on to become major festival headliners in their own right. That tradition of great British artists playing a part at the festival continues this year, with two of our most exciting young talents, in the shape of Ellie Goulding and Ben Howard, headlining the Main Stage on Saturday and Sunday, each in their own individual way, they’ve become firm festival favourites, and we’re sure that the huge success enjoyed by both so far will pale in comparison to the successes that lie ahead. They’re not the only young British artists with bright futures at Jersey Live; the likes of John Newman, Bombay Bicycle Club and Dance Stage headliner Duke Dumont are just a few of the acts who come to the festival in the beginning stages of meteoric rises, and all have a shot at writing their names into music history – we’re glad to be part of their story, and we’re glad that those of you attending Jersey Live this year will be part of it too.
You may have noticed that one of the tweaks we’ve made to Jersey Live this year is the expansion of the Par 4 Area, this year with the JT Stage. What started out as a cosy corner of the festival for those intrepid souls amongst you to wander and discover all sorts of theatrical delights, this year has grown into an area that by day offers fun for youngsters and grown ups aged 1 to 101; as well as plenty of games, walkaround performers and interactive installations, the Par 4 Area also welcomes Jersey Live favourite Shlomo, performing his ‘Beatbox Adventure for Kids’ and CBeebies gardening guru Mr Bloom delivering a green-fingered show for all the family. By night, the JT Stage will host bands and artists such as Billy Rowan and dub-reggae stars Dreadzone – the perfect soundtrack for the big kid in all of us to let loose to! We’ll finish by once again saying a huge thanks to everyone who has had a hand in making Jersey Live happen this year, from our headline sponsor JT to our hard-working volunteers and staff, our neighbours in Trinity and honorary police, and of course all of you for coming along and creating that magical Jersey Live spirit. Enjoy the music, and one another! Warren Holt & Warren Le Sueur, Jersey Live Co-Organisers www.jerseylive.org.uk

Once upon a time, there were but two stages at Jersey Live. Now the festival boasts five of them! You’ll find an eclectic offering across the stages of the festival, with fun to be had by kids and grown ups alike. Here’s what we’ve got in store for you:
MAIN STAGE This is the stage where the Jersey Live story began back in 2004. Back then it was headlined by The Thrills and since then it’s welcomed such megastars as Noel Gallagher, The Prodigy, Kasabian, Dizzee Rascal, Paul Weller and many more. It’s the biggest stage of the biggest music festival in the Channel Islands, and this year you’ll see the likes of Ellie Goulding, Ben Howard, Bombay Bicycle Club, John Newman and many more on it, doing what they do best!
DANCE STAGE Again, this indoor stage has been a staple part of the festival since day one, and some of the world’s biggest DJs and dance acts have rocked it over the years, including Sasha, 2Many DJ’s, Pete Tong, Boys Noize, Mr Oizo and many more, not to mention some of the island’s most celebrated DJs. 2014 sees house maestros Duke Dumont and Toolroom head honcho Mark Knight headlining, with a nod to the current deep house craze that is sweeping the nation with the likes of Eton Messy, Catz ‘N Dogz et al.
PAR 4 AREA & JT STAGE Not so much a new addition as a revamped area of Jersey Live, the Par 4 Area first appeared at the festival in 2012, hosting all sorts of weird and wonderful interactive installations and performers, including a bicycle-powered soundsystem and a human jukebox. This year, the Par 4 Area gets its own stage, with the daytime programme packed full of performances for children and families to enjoy, such as Shlomo’s Beatbox Adventure for Kids, CBeebies gardening guru Mr Bloom performing a very special live show and storytelling from the Roald Dahl Museum. There’ll also be lots of games and activities around the field, and by night once the youngsters are tucked up, there’ll be action aplenty for the big kids to enjoy! Dreadzone, David Rodigan MBE and Billy Rowan (The Undercover Hippy) are just a few of the acts lined up for your listening pleasure.
HOSPITALITY Celebrating its fifth birthday, the Hospitality Stage has been a big hit at Jersey Live with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Frank Turner, Craig Charles, David Holmes and John Cooper Clarke all having turned out to perform intimate sets to the 500-capacity crowd in our rather lovely geodesic dome. Hospitality ticketholders get to enjoy several perks with their ticket, including fast-track entry to the festival, complimentary champagne and food voucher, private bars, and this year will see sets ranging from the sublimely laid-back to the riotously raucous, with David Rodigan MBE, Molotov Jukebox and ska icons The Selecter all lined up to grace the stage over the weekend.
FULL FLOW TENT Another area of the festival celebrating its fifth birthday this year, the Full Flow tent has been one of the most popular areas of the festival since it first arrived here, and we can’t imagine a Jersey Live without it! Curated and managed by Jersey Live’s resident plumber and DJ extraordinaire Griff, the Full Flow tent host the cream of the island’s DJ talent, and you can expect funk, techno, dnb and everything in between! We’ve lost count of the number of festivalgoers who’ve popped their head into the Full Flow tent only to find themselves spending the whole weekend in there over the past five years – take your sturdiest dancing shoes with you.
Artist Profiles 1 (Ellie Goulding)
SATURDAY > MAIN STAGE > 2235-0000
We hope you’re as excited as we are to be joined at Jersey Live by the quite incredible Miss Ellie Goulding, who headlines the Main Stage on Saturday night. Winner of this year’s BRIT Award for British Female Solo Artist, Ellie Goulding has had some 2014 – in fact, it might just be the year that Goulding arrived as a true megastar, but she first forced her way into public consciousness in 2010 when she became only the second artist, after Adele in 2008, to both top the BBC’s influential annual Sound Of… poll and win the Critics’ Choice Award at the BRITS that year. Four years of honing her craft and refining her preternatural talents, and she comes to Jersey as the finished article; a unique artist with an original voice, unafraid to try new avenues and to experiment with different genres. Not to mention the three million album sales and ten million single sales, collaborations with the likes of Skrillex and stadium shows with the likes of U2.
As anyone who saw her unforgettable Glastonbury performance (and at least 960,000 did, her set attracting the biggest TV audience out of BBC’s weekend of Glasto coverage) will testify, she really is the real deal, and her incredible voice combined with an ability to flit from lighters-in-the-air ballad to adrenaline-fuelled dancefloor banger at the drop of the hat, makes her the perfect Jersey Live headliner.

SUNDAY > MAIN STAGE > 2130 -2300
The festival weekend culminates with the Sunday night Main Stage headline set by double BRIT Award winner, and one of Britain’s brightest musical talents, Ben Howard. The London-born and Devon-raised singersongwriter comes to the festival surfing a wave of momentum that has taken the folk star from the cosy venues of south west England to festival stages the world over. Having signed to Island Records in 2011, Howard has since gone on to be nominated for the coveted Mercury Prize for his album Every Kingdom, and later going on to win the Best Newcomer and Best British Solo Male Artist at the 2013 BRIT Awards. To add a cherry on the top, he was also nominated for the Ivor Novello for Best Album in the same year. Howard is one of a rare breed of performer – one with a unique ability to blend the intimate with the epic, belting out anthems to crowds of thousands whilst somehow seeming to make a round-the-campfire connection with each and every member of his audience – a talent that has stood him in good stead on Glastonbury’s hallowed Pyramid Stage and many a festival and arena around the world.
His heartfelt lyricism, richly textured and soulful voice, and of course the sheer quality of his songwriting are all of key ingredients of the Ben Howard magic; with a style that draws on artists such as John Martyn and Nick Drake and, he is an artist who holds up the long, proud tradition of great British folk artists, and he carries the torch all the way to the Jersey Live Main Stage. Performing with his full band at the festival, we’re sure it’ll be an unforgettable way to bring the curtain down on the weekend. For more info visit: www.benhoward.com
WHEELS IN MOTION WITH BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB SUNDAY > MAIN STAGE > 1945-2045 Bombay Bicycle Club come to Jersey Live for the first time this year, with at least one foot planted firmly in the upper reaches of indie royalty since scoring their first UK number one album with So Long, See You Tomorrow, earlier this year. Their psychedelic blend of electronic, folk, rock, afrobeat and tropical influences have combined with an uncanny ear for a melody to carry them a long way since first emerging on the UK music scene after winning a competition to perform the opening slot at V Festival in 2006, which feels a lifetime away given their achievements since. In the subsequent years the band have gone from strength to strength, with four albums now under their belt, headline tours worldwide, an Ivor Novello nomination (for Best Album in 2011 for Flaws) and the Best New Band prize at the 2010 NME Awards. With numerous indie anthems, ‘Always Like This’, ‘Lights Out, Words Gone’ and ‘Feel’ being just a few of them, we’re pretty confident that their Main Stage set is going to be something special. We caught up with guitarist Jamie McColl for a quick chat ahead of the big day… You played your very first festival as sixteenyear-olds, nine years ago. What was it like? Had any of you even been to festivals as punters, and have you ever been as punters since? It was a very long time ago now so my memory of the show is increasingly hazy. If anything my overriding memory remains of Suren our drummer being thrown out of Girls Aloud dressing room for trying to meet them. At that stage we hadn’t been to any festivals as punters, though later that summer we did go to Reading to make the pilgrimage that most British sixteen year olds seem to make. I still go to festivals as a punter if we’re not playing -
last year I went to Glastonbury and camped out in the main bit with my friends. I tend to try and avoid the backstage/VIP areas though… What have been your favourite festival experiences since? When we played Glastonbury in 2010, that still stands out as my favourite festival moment. We were joined on stage by a samba band for our last song and it turned into one of those joyous moments in your life that you tend to look back on forever. What’s your weirdest festival memory? Probably the aforementioned Girls Aloud story!
Compared with most people aged 16 – 24, you’ve had a pretty unique experience together as friends. What’s it been like effectively growing up in a band, and how have you all changed as people? I would say that it doesn’t prepare you for life very well – being in a band is a strange existence that seems to keep some people in an almost permanent adolescent state: responsible for their own creative output but also constantly relying on managers and tour managers to babysit them and organise their lives. I’m not necessarily talking about our band of course, but this is something that I’ve often observed with other bands. At the same time
I’d like to think that the members of Bombay Bicycle Club haven’t changed all that much. We retain the same mixture of awkwardness and amiableness that drew people to us in the first place. Long may that remain! Congratulations on the new album, and your first UK number one with it. It’s a lot more experimental then previous work. To see any band willing and able to make a radical shift in sound is always really exciting – have you started to get any new songs down for a new record and are you aiming at any particular new direction? Right now we haven’t started work on anything new though there are some songs left over from the last record that we didn’t have time to work on that I can see making their way into the live set. It’s difficult to tell right now when our next album will come out; we’ve released four albums in five years and I think we need time to go back out into the ‘real’ world and find some things to write about – touring life just doesn’t cut it as lyrical content! In terms of the direction of the new record, it’s impossible to say too much at this point in time. In any case we’d probably end up doing the complete opposite of anything that I would say now…
You produced the album yourself – that must have been hugely liberating but also a bit scary at the same time, would that be fair to say? It was liberating in the sense that we finally had full control -- the end product would be exactly how we heard it in our heads at the start. At the same time that meant that we had no producer to fall back on for new ideas; no one else to blame if we came unstuck. The new material is inspired by your travels – is there anywhere you’d like to play that you haven’t crossed off the list yet? One of the things I find exciting about the band is that there are still so many places I’d love us to go and play as a band: India, South Africa, Columbia and New Zealand are just a few places that spring to mind. I’ve always wanted to do a Middle Eastern tour but that increasingly seems like it won’t be possible. Finally any last words for the Jersey crowd ahead of your appearance at the festival in August? BRING THE RUCKUS. For more info visit: www.bombaybicycleclubmusic.com
JOHN NEWMAN SATUDAY > MAIN STAGE > 2050 -2150
Velvet-voiced John Newman has had a glittering career already with 1.3 million record sales in the UK alone and two BRIT Award nominations, including for Best British Male at the 2014 awards, and what makes it all the more impressive is the fact that he’s still only 23. After coming to national attention as vocalist on Rudimental’s chart-topping breakthrough single ‘Feel the Love’ in the summer of 2012. It was the following summer that Newman’s solo career truly took off, with his debut single ‘Love Me Again’ reaching the top of the charts and his debut album Tribute, released last October hitting – you guessed it – number one in the UK album charts.
To say that it’s been an impressive past two years for the young singer-songwriter is something of an understatement, and his career appears to go from strength to strength. It’s all thoroughly deserved – with his incredible, soulful voice, his talent is without question, and he’s nothing short of a star in the making. For more info visit: www.johnnewman.co.uk
SATURDAY > MAIN STAGE > 1450-1535
SATURDAY > MAIN STAGE > 1735-1825
Performing on the Main Stage on Saturday afternoon is acclaimed guitarist and folk singer-songwriter Newton Faulkner. With four Top 10 charting albums to his name, including his 2007 debut Hand Built By Robots and 2012’s Write It On Your Skin, Faulkner’s heartfelt lyricism and idiosyncratic playing style have made him a huge star, and performances at countless festivals worldwide under his belt, including Glastonbury, Lollapalooza and Isle of Wight Festival to name just a few, he certainly knows how to make the big stage his own. With sun-kissed melodies and heart-wrenching anthems like ‘Dream Catch Me’ and ‘Teardrop’ awaiting our festival audience, this set has all the ingredients of a Jersey Live classic.
SUNDAY > MAIN STAGE > 1445-1525
Joining the Main Stage bill are Baltimore indie folk duo Wye Oak. Featuring Jess Wasner on vocals and guitar and Andy Stack on drums and keys, Wye Oak’s thunderous live shows have earned them a dedicated global following, their dreamy, heartfelt folk stylings have drawn rave reviews from the world’s indie music press, and having seen their music feature on huge TV shows such as The Walking Dead and Being Human, their star continues to rise ever further. Woozy, atmospheric dreampop on a Saturday afternoon in the rural heart of Trinity? Sounds alright to us!
We feel pretty confident in saying that Lucy Rose is one of Britain’s finest songwriting talents; consequently, it goes without saying that we’re just a bit pleased to have her making her first appearance at Jersey Live. Her travels have taken her to the stages of Bestival and Reading and Leeds and countless venues around Europe and the US, and she counts the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club and Manic Street Preachers not just as fans, but collaborators. With a follow-up to her acclaimed debut album, Like I Used To, set for release later this year, 2014 is set to be another milestone on her journey.
SATURDAY > MAIN STAGE > 1345-1415
X Factor may have its detractors, but with the preciously talented 17 year-old Luke Friend, it can’t be denied that it has a knack for unearthing rare gems on occasion. The young singer-songwriter may have finished third in last year’s X Factor final, but in many people’s eyes, he was the clear winner. Possessing one powerful voice, his influences include the likes of Dylan, Bob Marley, Ben Howard and Mumford & Sons, all of which can be heard in his soulful, folk-driven balladry.
CATFISH AND THE BOTTLEMEN
Welsh rockers (and gloriously monickered) Catfish and the Bottlemen are a stadium band waiting to happen. Lauded by Zane Lowe and Steve Lamacq, signed to the same label as Michael Kiwanuka and Deep Valley, and ranked at number one on MTV’s hottest tracks (for ‘Kathleen’) earlier this year, their indie credentials are undeniable. Their songs are infectious, their live shows epic – in short, the perfect big stage band.
SUNDAY > MAIN STAGE > 1555-1630
SUNDAY > MAIN STAGE > 1700-1745
Please give a warm welcome and doff your cap firmly in the direction of the incredibly influential 2-Tone ska band The Selecter, who this year celebrate their 35th Anniversary. Fronted by Pauline Black – a woman cited by Gwen Stefani as her prime influence – The Selecter formed in 1979, and with a number of Top 40 hits, including ‘On My Radio’ and ‘Three Minute Hero’, they are a band as well renowned for the politically charged nature of their music as for their raucous live shows. The Guardian hit the nail on the head when they described them as a ‘festival hardened entertainment spectacle to behold.’ As well as their Main Stage appearance they’ll also be performing a more intimate set on the Hospitality Stage.
EARTH, WIND & FIRE EXPERIENCE feat. AL MCKAY
SATURDAY > MAIN STAGE > 1905-2005
There aren’t many artists who have been rightfully described as having “changed the sound of black pop music”, but Rolling Stone saw fit to bestow such praise upon Earth, Wind & Fire and we sure wouldn’t disagree. With countless hits, including ‘Devotion’, ‘Shining Star’ and ‘That’s the Way of the World’, Al McKay and his band come to Jersey as one of the most respected and influential acts of the 20th Century. Formed in 1969, Earth, Wind & Fire’s career has spanned genres and generations, their blend of R&B, soul, funk, disco and gospel music earning them 20 Grammy nominations and 90 million record sales worldwide, not to mention a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It doesn’t get much more showbiz than this.
KLAXONS BACK TO THE FUTURE!
SUNDAY > MAIN STAGE > 1815 -1900
We’ve been big fans of the original purveyors of New Rave – or “acid-rave sci-fi punk funk”, depending on whose description you go with – since they first landed back in 2007 with their Mercury Prize-winning album Myths of the Near Future, and we’re chuffed to bits to welcome them to the Jersey Live Main Stage for the first time. We caught up with frontman James Righton (who stepped away from the craziness of touring the new Love Frequency album to spare us a few minutes, bless him) for a brief chinwag. Here’s what he had to say... So, tell us about your first festival experiences... As a fan my first festival experience was Reading Festival 1994. I was only ten at the time. My dad took me and a friend, and we saw the Wildhearts, Therapy and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. I used to love 90’s rock as an angsty teenage so it was pretty amazing seeing these bands. It definitely hooked me in to the idea of being in a band. I think our first festival experience as a group was a one-off, and now slightly mythical festival called Tales of the Jackalope. It was organised by Vice and was literally carnage. We could barely play at the time but it didn’t seem to matter. Everyone was on a massive trip. What have been been your favourite festival experiences? I loved a festival we played this year called For. It was on an island named Hvar in Croatia.
We were playing and DJing but we also stayed for the duration of the festival. Stunning location, small and intimate and with great bands and djs – Haim, Neneh Cherry, Movement, Erol Alkan. Also it was cool as everyone just hung out; fans and bands. All pretty magical. What’s been your oddest festival experience? Again probably Tales of the Jackalope. The last thing I can remember from it was seeing someone from the band Shit Disco trying to joust our splitter van before the festival seemed to disappear into it’s own universe. Congratulations on the new record - you worked with so many different collaborators on it - how different was the working process with each, and did you have a particular favourite? If you’re allowed to say...
Thanks. No faves really. They all share many qualities. All are incredibly meticulous when it comes to getting up tones and sounds. They all also share a love for analogue synths, drum machines and music with melody and rhythm. Mainly it was really great being able to work with people whose music we love and who have supported the band over the years. You’ve said yourselves that the second album was a misstep – what were the problems with it as far as you’re concerned, and how would you say Love Frequency is superior? I don’t think any of us feel the second album was a misstep. We love the record. It’s quite weird, heavy, dense, pop music. I think it just needed people to invest time in it. But I guess it wasn’t as immediate as the first. It’s still pretty hooky, its just hidden behind the production. It’s mad though because
for some people it’s their favourite record but for the majority its seen as a failure as it didn’t sell so well. I wouldn’t say Love Frequency is superior its just different. More stripped back, electronic dance production. Maybe less complicated and more pop. It’s still the same three people making it whatever. How has the new material been received when you’ve played it out live? Great. We love playing the new stuff. We’d road tested the majority of it and it went down better than most of the old songs so it gave us confidence. It’s fun though now because the set has three albums to draw on so there’s very little filler. We just play the hits! You always said you’d make a trilogy of albums, based on Past, Present, Future. You’ve fulfilled that trilogy – what happens now? We tour it for the foreseeable future. I think live is where it works best. We have a UK / European tour in autumn and then I’m sure we’ll do a few loops around the world. Finally, any last words for the Jersey crowd ahead of your appearance at the festival in August? See you down the front. For more info visit: www.klaxons.net
FROM THE TOOLROOM TO THE DANCE STAGE AN INTERVIEW WITH MARK KNIGHT SUNDAY > DANCE STAGE > 2130-2300
Sunday night sees international house DJ and head honcho of Toolroom Records Mark Knight take to the Dance Stage, and we could scarcely be more excited. Having collaborated extensively with Underworld, Faithless, and former Jersey Live star D.Ramirez, as well as contributing to the multi-platinum selling, Grammy Award-winning Black Eyed Peas album The E N D, Knight’s career has been simply remarkable. He has not left the pages of DJ Mag’s influential ‘Top 100 DJs’ poll since 2008, and having brought his exhilarating sets to some of the world’s most iconic venues and festivals over the past decade, you can be sure that he’ll bring the curtain down on the Dance Stage at Jersey Live 2014 in style. We caught up with him to hear his festival stories and to find out what we can expect at Jersey Live...
What are your memories of your first festival? My first ever festival was Tribal Gathering back in 1995. My lasting memory of that was getting slightly worse for wear and then going back to try and find the car in the morning. The grass was four feet long and we spent about four hours looking for it. It was an absolute nightmare and I swear we nearly got hypothermia in the process. As a DJ my first festival was Global Gathering. It was being broadcast live on Radio One and definitely felt like I was jumping in at the deep end. What have been your favourite festival experiences as a performer, and as an audience member? I wasn’t technically a punter, but it was amazing to watch Underworld perform all the records I produced with them back in 2010. To have been involved in that creative process and then get to stand back and watch the tracks being performed to huge festival crowds was an incredible experience. As a performer, I would have to say any festival where we do the Toolroom Knights concept. It’s always an amazing vibe and the music is totally reflective of where we are as a brand and it’s a great opportunity to catch up with the gang and have a beer! Regardless of where we are in the world it always goes off! What’s been your weirdest festival experience? I don’t know about weirdest, but the craziest festival experience was surrounding Global Gathering one year when I was playing. I was en route to play a set that would be broadcast live on Radio One and the M40 had thirty-mile tailbacks. We had to drive most of the way up the hard shoulder. To date I’m not sure how we got away with it. We made the set and it was a wicked show, but that journey was pretty horrific. Do you approach festival sets differently to how you would a usual show? Absolutely. Festival sets are usually higher impact. When it comes to club shows I do the longer and
more drawn out sets, but for festival sets you have to maintain a certain level of intensity to match bigger crowds. The overall energy can plateau too easily, so it’s about giving it maximum energy without moving outside of my musical space. You’ve had a pretty amazing career, and collaborated with some pretty amazing people. Who’s been your favourite and who would be your dream collaborator? My favourite act to work with was definitely Underworld. I learnt so much from them and it was a lot of fun to hang out with them. My dream collaboration would be Sade. I’ve been saying it for years so I hope she is reading this! What brings you the most satisfaction nowadays – being a producer, being a DJ or being a successful label boss? All of them do. They are all intrinsically linked and they make one whole entity. When all off these parts of my career are working together it is incredibly satisfying to see that bigger picture take shape. What new projects do you have on the horizon? I am about to drop the third instalment of my Bullets EP series, which consists of two brand new club tracks from me on Toolroom. As well as that I have collaborations coming up alongside Rene Amesz and Adrian Hour, as well as some very exciting remixes set to drop throughout the rest of the year. Working on a big Toolroom project, however can’t really talk about that right now. All will be revealed in good time! Any last words for the Jersey crowd ahead of your Jersey Live set? It’s been a long time since I’ve been out there and I can’t wait to get back. The line-up looks great and I’ve got some cool material to play, so I look forward to seeing you all there.

100% HOUSE ROYALTY DUKE DUMONT SATURDAY > DANCE STAGE > 2200-0000
Saturday night’s headliner is a man fast becoming known as the UK’s new king of house music. After making his name as go-to remixer for the likes of Lily Allen, Mystery Jets and Bat For Lashes, Duke Dumont firmly established himself in the big time early last year when his debut single ‘Need U’ shot to the top of the UK charts. That was followed up by his second single ‘I Got U’ hitting the summit of the singles charts earlier this year, making it a clean sweep of Number One singles in his young career so far. With a Grammy nomination already under his belt – for Best Dance Recording at the 56th annual Grammy Awards in January this year – Duke Dumont is already a huge star on both sides of the Atlantic, and just the man to bring Saturday’s festivities to a spectacular climax on the Dance Stage.
What were your first festival experiences? My first experience was actually as a DJ. I grew up in London and didn’t have much opportunity to go to a festival. From what I can remember it was Global Gathering in 2007... I remember I played the final night, and there was torrential rain but because I was playing in the only tent with a wooden floor, people flocked in. It resembled a zombie apocalypse but was a fantastic show. Over the past couple of years you’ve had a pretty gruelling touring and recording schedule. How do you keep up the energy levels, how often do you get to catch a break, and what do you do when you get one?
On the road, you learn to eat, and sleep at any opportunity you can, because you don’t know when you’ll get the chance. I’m of the opinion that DJs get paid to travel, but should look at the show as a passion. As for breaks, there aren’t many right now, but I’m not complaining. Do you approach festival sets differently to how you would a usual show? Yes... festivals you usually have to play harder and faster. You have to start with a bang and not drop the energy levels. With a club set, you can apply more varied dynamics. What new projects do you have on the horizon? My album, my live show and my label. The first
two releases from Jax Jones (‘Go Deep’) and Kiwi (’The Mara’) will be out this summer on Blasé Boys Club. We hear that you have an alias ‘that nobody knows about’ – any clues? No. Ha! Finally any last words for the Jersey crowd ahead of your Dance Stage set? Bring your dancing shoes and dance like you’re the only one in the room. ‘Won’t Look Back’ is out now on Blasé Boys Club/ Virgin Records. For more info visit: www.dukedumont.com
CATZ ‘N DOGZ
SUNDAY > DANCE STAGE > 2000-2130
Catz ‘N Dogz are Szczecin-based DJ-producer duo Gregor and Voitek and although the name is relatively new, the chances are the electroheads amongst you will have heard them already. Under their previous 3 Channels monicker, they have already had releases on respected underground labels including Trapez, Crosstown Rebels and their own Channels Recordings imprint. Since starting out a clubnight in their home town of Szczecin in 2003, Gregor and Voitek have gone from strength to strength, and they’re now as likely to be seen showing off their sublime combination of deep house and minimal techno in superclubs and festivals around the world as they are in the warehouse parties of Poland and Berlin.

Bristol has historically been a rich breeding ground for forwardthinking electronic acts – Roni Size, Portishead and Massive Attack being three that spring to mind when one thinks of the city – and by Jove, it seems they’ve done it again with the quite phenomenal Redlight, whose blend of house, d&b and breakbeat has been setting festival arenas ablaze in recent times. He counts the likes of Annie Mac, Mark Ronson and Skream amongst his many high-profile admirers, and we’d put money on you joining them in singing his praises once you’ve see him in action on the Jersey Live Dance Stage.
Joining a Dance Stage line up already busting at the seams with emerging and established talent is Los Angeles producer-DJ Wes James, better known by his stage name of Le Youth. Having risen to prominence on this side of the pond last summer with the Top 10 single ‘COOL’ (a track selected by Radio One presenter Nick Grimshaw as his ‘Record of the Week’), Le Youth’s blend of 90s R&B and house influences is winning the favour of DJs and tastemakers the world over. He may well be one of the defining dance acts of 2014.
SATURDAY > DANCE STAGE > 2030-2200
Eton Messy started life as a Youtube channel pushing forward-thinking garage, house and bass music artists like Disclosure and Maribou State, but with their own monthly mixes receiving rave reviews, the collective branched out to live shows in 2013, and appear to be taking clubland a little bit by storm. They recently launched Eton Messy Records and embarked on their biggest ever UK tour, and needless to say, we’re happy to have the Eton Messy phenomenon making its mark on Jersey for the first time.
SATURDAY > DANCE STAGE > 1730-1900
We’re delighted to welcome back Thomas Gandey, who last appeared on the Dance Stage back in 2012. Formerly known as Cagedbaby, the Berlin and Bordeaux-based producer was previously known for his poppy tech-disco style, which saw him tour the world with the likes of Fatboy Slim, The Chemical Brothers and Underworld, as well as writing and producing for such huge artists as David Byrne. However, under his real name, he has broadened his palate by adding tech and deep house to that trademark disco sound. With a staggering 150 remixes and 1,000 live shows under his belt, he’s one of the hardest-working figures in the business, and one of the most intrepid, always looking for the next exciting project – take, for example, his work in 2012 engineering Jeff Wayne’s platinum-selling ‘War of the Worlds – The New Generation.’ We’re happy to have coaxed him out of the studio and on to the decks at Jersey Live this September.
DAVID RODIGAN MBE SATURDAY > HOSPITALITY STAGE > 2150-2235
HEADLINER We’re honoured to welcome to Jersey legendary broadcaster, reggae DJ and Member of the British Empire, David ‘Ram-Jam’ Rodigan MBE. Having started out his reggae broadcasting career in 1978 on BBC Radio London, Rodigan has over thirty years as top dog in the bass-heavy atmosphere of Britain’s reggae dance halls, accruing an encyclopedic knowledge of Jamaican music along the way. His credibility was cemented when he began clashing with Jamaica’s champion DJ, Barry G on JBC Radio in Jamaica before going on to clash with all the top Jamaican sound systems in the West Indies, the USA and England, and in 2012 he won the ultimate clash victory when he took the Champion Trophy at World Clash Reset in New York. With a regular show on BBC 1Xtra and as a staple of the festival circuit, some might say that at the age of 63, he’s at the height of his powers.

Charlie Lashmar is a Jersey born singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist (guitar, piano, flute, saxophone and drums amongst others). Having played in orchestras, jazz groups and punk bands while a teenager, his music melds genres and his melodies are infectious. Lashmar’s blend of indie, electronica and pop hooks draws inspiration from the spiky guitars of bands like Bloc Party and Talking Heads, shimmering 80’s synths and the rich vocal harmonies of The Beach Boys, his music is truly original and we can’t wait to see him make his festival debut on the Hospitality Stage.
Mo’Matic is none other than Jersey Live regular Colin Moore, one half of Fuzzbox Inc - with over twenty years spent DJing around the world at various clubs and festivals including London’s Fabric, Austria’s Snowbombing, Canada’s Shambhala, Colin has produced tracks under many disguises such as Kerphunk, Hifi-Sushi and Fuzzbox, and we’re sure his latest guise will go down a storm on the Hospitality Stage. Under the ‘Mo’Matic’ monicker, Colin is presently working on original productions and providing remixes for such prestigious labels as Tru Thoughts, Irish Moss and Big Chill. Hospitality ticketholders can expect a veritable smorgasbord of funk, hip-hop, reggae, dub, rocksteady and ska from Mo’Matic’s set – all on vinyl of course.
SUNDAY > HOSPITALITY STAGE > 2045-2130
Get ready to get rowdy ladies and gents; fronted by Harry Potter and Game of Thrones star Natalia Tena, the six-piece Molotov Jukebox combine gypsy, swing, latin soul, calypso, disco and dubstep influences to create the most thrilling, raucous trumpet/violin/accordion-laden live show you’ll see all year. It’s little wonder fans including Rob Da Bank, Michael Eavis and comedy god Doug Stanhope have lined up to sing their praises. With their long-anticipated debut album out this year, it’s a big 2014 for Molotov Jukebox, and we’re rather pleased they’ve opted to spend a portion of it with us at Jersey Live.
THE DOORS ALIVE SATURDAY > HOSPITALITY STAGE > 2005-2050
The Hospitality Stage is set to rock to the sounds of Jim Morrison and co on Saturday night as the most exciting, authentic, charismatic and (self proclaimed) sexually magnetic tribute band to pay homage to 1960’s rock titans The Doors make their Jersey Live debut. Having recently echoed their muses by opening this year’s Isle of Wight Festival (The Doors themselves appeared at the festival in 1970), it’s been a busy summer for The Doors Alive, and as the UK’s finest performers of classics like ‘People Are Strange’, ‘Light My Fire’ and ‘Break On Through’, it’s little wonder they’re in such high demand.

FULL FLOW TENT
MEET GRIFF ON TAP IN THE FULL FLOW LOCALE
Jersey Live’s resident plumber Griff has been a cornerstone of the local dance scene for years now and is something of a Jersey Live veteran, having been involved since day one. He’s also the man behind the Full Flow Locale Tent, hosting a diverse offering of local DJs throughout the weekend. We caught up with Griff to send a salute his way and to find out more about Full Flow and what Griff has in the pipeline… pun intended. How did you first get involved with Jersey Live? I started working with Jersey Live back in 2004 the first year it was held in Trinity. I was tasked with the job of supplying water around the site, installing the new shiny urinals and overseeing the emptying of the portaloos. What’s been your lasting Jersey Live memory? Blimey, I have so many memories of the festival but I recall being in the speigeltent when the two singers from French band Cocoon played an inpromtu acoustic set, which was totally amazing. Also Belgium’s finest techno wizards Goose waking up the Main Stage early one afternoon when the sun was out. Having a party in Groove Armada’s dressing room after they had just headlined the main stage was rather surreal. I could go on! Tell us a bit about the Full Flow tent… The Full Flow tent is celebrating its fifth birthday this year. Having been involved with the festival virtually from day one. I could see that our hugely talented local DJ’s needed a platform of their own to showcase their skills, and after pestering the
Warrens they gave us a chance. You can expect to hear all types of genres in there from funk and soul right through to drum and bass. Myself, Craig Alder and Warren Le Sueur put together the line up and the only criteria to play is that you are local and currently active on the DJ circuit. Choosing the set list is the worst part of organising the tent as there are lots of people who we have to leave out but are deserving of a set. The public should expect a full weekend party atmosphere from our amazing local DJs, a top quality sound system from Formula Sound and of course great lighting courtesy of local company Delta Productions. What’s been the soundtrack to your summer so far? Well I have been listening to the Disclosure album non-stop now for ages and still love it. I have just got back from Glastonbury where I saw them do a DJ set in Arcadia and then a live set headlining the West Holts stage. They are so unbelievably talented for such young men. I hope the Warrens can book them for Jersey Live at some point.
THE CREAM OF THE CROP Jersey’s been blessed with a thriving dance music scene since the early nineties, with some of the world’s biggest names stopping off on our rock at one point or another. It’s also produced many a talented DJ too, as you’ll see when wandering into the Dance Stage, Full Flow Tent or Silent Disco over the weekend. In fact, there are so many to choose from that we’re not able to pay tribute to all of them right now, but all the same, we thought it only fair to shine the spotlight on a small selection of the DJs at Jersey Live who continue to shape the island’s dance music scene...
SATURDAY > DANCE STAGE > 1615-1730
BEN NEWMAN SUNDAY > DANCE STAGE > 1500-1615
Although most often associated with house, techno and bass music, Ben refuses to be pigeon holed and can just as often be found playing sets taking in styles as disparate as funk, soul, hip hop, reggae and disco. As a founding member of Jersey’s Rocksteady collective alongside John O’Connell, Ben has enjoyed residencies at Rojo, Pure, The Watersplash and The Live Lounge over the past seven years, and has played as far afield as London, Serbia, Thailand and Austria, as well as frequent shows at Brighton’s Audio nightclub. Having brought the likes of Boddika, Loefah, Jackmaster, Pangaea and Ben Pearce to the island in recent years, Rocksteady have carved a name for themselves as one of the island’s most forward-thinking party starters.
SASHA LE MONNIER
SATURDAY > DANCE STAGE > 1500-1615
A long-term ally of Jersey Live, Si has been DJing since the age of fifteen and has played a big part in the formation of the island’s dance scene since the early 90’s. He not only took over Jersey Live co-organiser Warren le Sueur’s DJ residency at the much-missed Inn on the Park nightclub but had the honour of playing the last ever record there (All Boxed In - ‘These Things Happen’ if you must know – he even has a tattoo to mark the event), and in the mid 90’s joined forces with Warren to promote the events at more or less every club in the island, not to mention the infamous offshore parties at Elizabeth Castle. During the last twenty years has DJ’d and promoted events with just about everyone you can think of, from from Seb Fontaine in the 90’s, through to Groove Armada, Bassment Jazz, Nic Fanciulli and Annie Mac. He has a love of house, and if you have a love of house, there’s a good chance you’ll have a love of Si...
From Jersey, Channel Islands, a DJ of 17 years who has successfully in the past run and co-managed 4 nights over the years in her native island. Her flawless mixing and superb track selection also taking her further afield with tours in both the U.S.A and Australia as well as gigs in Europe & London playing clubs like Chinese Laundry, My Aeon, Kiss Nightclub, The Code and Ministry Of Sound. Sasha tantalising crowds with her peak time sounds. You can also hear the warm up side, a side that has seen her play and warm up, Guy J, Kasey Taylor, Steve Parry, and also headline with Guy J whilst touring Australia.
SUNDAY > DANCE STAGE > 1615-1730
Stuart King is best known as one half of the Sunday Club who released several cult epic house records & remixes in the mid nineties on Stress Records. He’s been around the scene since the onset of the 80’s acid house movement, and from taking part in bunker raves way back when to DJing in some of the island’s most established clubs alongside the likes of John Digweed, Carl Cox and Laurent Garnier, Stuart’s more or less seen it all. In the mid-nineties he teamed up with producer Marc Mitchell to produce several singles such as ‘Paladian Dawn’ and ‘Healing Dream’, having a major impact on the progressive trance scene; they went on to sell over 50,000 singles and remixed the likes of Jean Michel Jarre and Way Out West, and Stuart’s tracks have appeared on compilations by Tiesto, Pete Tong and Gatecrasher, to name just a few. He’s DJ’d in every club worth its salt, from Space in Ibiza to Warung in Brazil, and he’s most certainly paid his dues to the dance scene. Come and pay yours to Stuart at the Dance Stage!
PETE DE MOMME
SUNDAY > DANCE STAGE > 1730-1830
One of Jersey’s busiest DJs is Pete De Momme, who’ll be on the Dance Stage on Sunday at Jersey Live. Having been a dance music convert since he was knee high to a bass stack, Pete has been gigging since he was sixteen and his travels have seen him hold residencies as far afield as Koh Samui, where he lined up alongside such stellar names as Sven Vath and Dave Seaman, and he’s spun his magic in Hong Kong, Singapore, Canada, Poland and Turkey – but that’s not to say he’s not been active locally. As a promoter, Pete has served up shows in Jersey under the Kidnapped, Clique and Pandemic banners, bringing to these shores some of the most exciting names in techno and house, and he’s DJ’d at more or less any Jersey venue. During his time, Pete has DJ’d on bills with Jamie Jones, Andrew Weatherall and Damian Lazarus, to name just a few, which gives you some idea of the calibre of performance to expect from Pete this year at Jersey Live.

STRANGE FACTS ABOUT THE ISLAND OF JERSEY
Jersey Live opens its gates to thousands of overseas visitors each year and we hope that this year is no different. If this is your first time in the island, welcome. If it’s a return visit, welcome back! Hopefully you’re staying on in the island for a few days after your Jersey Live weekend and will get a chance to explore the beautiful scenery and plentiful culinary delights the island has to offer. To give you a bit of inspiration, we’ve collected some strange and surprising facts about Jersey. NB. One of these isn’t true... Philosopher and ‘father of Communism’ Karl Marx regularly holidayed in Jersey in the 19th Century, staying on more than one occasion in St Aubin’s Trafalgar Hotel, now known as The Trafalgar Pub!
chimneystacks. The islanders believed that providing a seat for passing witches to rest on would prevent them from falling foul of evil spells. Well, better safe than sorry!
Talking of St Aubin – remember that airport that your plane landed in when you arrived this weekend? Well, once upon a time, the airport was significantly smaller. It was, in fact, a small landing strip on the beach in St Aubin!
Some traditional Jersey delicacies include the tasty stewed bean crock, the scrumptiously sweet doughnut that is the Jersey Wonder and, er, conger head soup. Now, we’re as open minded as the next person, but we’re yet to introduce it to the menu in Jersey Live’s Food Village...
Many of the older houses in the Channel Islands have a witch’s seat in them, which comprise stones that jut out of the houses’
Jersey has one of the world’s largest tidal ranges, meaning that when the tide is out, the island grows by a fifth!
In 1990, the fossil of a new species of dinosaur, believed to have walked the earth during the Jurassic period, was excavated by paleontologists in King Street. It was named Bergeracitops after Jersey’s much-loved TV detective. There is a prehistoric forest buried beneath the surfers’ beach at St Ouen’s Bay. There may or may not be more Bergeracitops located there too. Superman is a from Jersey! Henry Cavill, who appeared in last year’s Man of Steel movie and is set to line up alongside Ben Affleck in the sequel, was born and raised
on this very island. For Clark Kent to be one of our own is something of a source of pride, unsurprisingly, and Jersey Post celebrated by releasing a limited edition series of Superman postal stamps. Henry returned the gesture by bringing his pals Russell Crowe and Amy Adams to the island for a special red carpet screening last summer. Bless him. The Channel Islands have a peculiar national status – 14 miles from France yet not French, English speaking but not an English territory, Jersey is a crown dependency and part of the British Isles. It became part of the Duchy of Normandy in 933, meaning that when the Norman King, William the Conqueror took over England in 1066, Jersey became part of his wider territories. However, William’s great-great grandson was evicted from Normandy 170 years later – subsequent events led to Jersey being not quite French, not quite English...

As night falls, the JT Stage will welcome a diverse pick of local and international bands, just one of which are festival favourites Dreadzone. Formed out of the ashes of Mick Jones and Don Letts’ Big Audio Dynamite in 1993, the dub/reggae/folk outfit were much championed by the late, great Radio One DJ John Peel, who named their album Second Light as one of his favourite records of all time. Dreadzone are Glastonbury veterans having appeared there on an almost annual basis since they first opened the Pyramid Stage there in 1994, meaning they come to Jersey Live with one hefty CV. A fun bit of trivia: past backing vocalists for the band include not only Allison Goldfrapp, but Denise Van Outen!
THE GRAVELTONES SATURDAY > JT STAGE > 2145-2230
SATURDAY > MAIN STAGE > 1615-1655
SUNDAY > JT STAGE > 1900-1945
Billy ‘The Undercover Hippy’ Rowan, first appeared on the Jersey Live Hospitality Stage at last year’s 10th anniversary festival, and we couldn’t wait to bring him back to the festival. Blending hip hop, folk, roots and reggae influences, The Undercover Hippy’s lyrical dexterity and ear for a catchy hook made him a big hit here in 2013, and we’re sure he’ll be a big hit once again this time around on the Par 4 Stage.
Following in a long and fine tradition of guitar and drums duos making much more noise than any two piece has any right to (think The White Stripes and The Black Keys), The Graveltones are Jimmy O and drummer Mikey Sorbello. If crunching riffs and, well, gravelly vocals are your thing – and frankly, they should be – then The Graveltones will be right up your street. Having performed over 250 gigs since forming in 2011, they might just be the hardest working blues-rock two-piece in showbusiness.
THE LITTLE BIG BAND SATURDAY > JT STAGE > 1820-1905
Influenced by Cab Calloway, Otis Redding, Blues Brothers, Van Morrison, and many more, The Little Big Band have been favourites on the local gig circuit for many a year now, and they’ve turned out at Jersey Live several times now with a sackfull of dancefloor-filling party anthems. A big band sound (with a four piece brass section) in a small package. Clue’s in the name really...
SATURDAY > JT STAGE > 1540-1600
CBeebies gardening guru Mr Bloom brings to Jersey Live his live show in which he and his team teach tiddlers (that’s kids in Bloom-speak!) how to nurture plants and vegetables. You’ll get to meet Compo, The Wee MacGregors and The Veggies – including Margaret the Cabbage, Colin the Runner Bean and all the the green-fingered favourites – as they give an all-singing, all-dancing crash course in caring for your surroundings. And in a place boasting the natural beauty of Jersey Live’s home in the Parish of Trinity, what better place to learn how to care for your surroundings?
ROALD DAHL STORYTELLERS
SATURDAY > JT STAGE > 1445-1515 PLUS MORE SESSIONS OVER THE WEEKEND
We’re thrilled to have the Museum coming to Jersey Live to share Dahl’s magical stories with youngsters and grownups alike – from ‘Matilda’ to ‘Charlie & the Chocolate Factory’, Dahl’s stories have brought joy to generations of children and on the JT Stage you’ll hear the hilarious ‘Revolting Rhymes’ and much more. Now everyone gather around…
DIVERSITY SUNDAY > MAIN STAGE > 1300-1325
SUNDAY > JT STAGE > 1430-1500
The Par 4 daytime line up this year includes a very special event, in the shape of a meet-and-greet with the acclaimed dance troupe Diversity, who will also be opening the Main Stage on the Sunday at Jersey Live. The London based collective rose to stardom after famously beating Susan Boyle to win the 2007 Britainâ€™s Got Talent final, and have since gone on to perform at the MOBO Awards, sold-out shows at the O2 Arena and before the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance. As well as their performance and meet-and-greet, Diversity will be giving exclusive demonstrations in the Par 4 Area, giving kids and families an opportunity to get up close and personal and maybe learn a move or two!
More action packed activities and artists happening throughout the Jersey Live Festival weekend within the Par 4 Area and on the JT Stage...

A er his Dance Stage exploits at Jersey Live last year, we’re chuffed to bits to welcome back to the festival global beatboxing star Schlomo who this time brings you his Beatbox Adventure for Kids, with sound effects, music, crashes, bangs and a whole lotta wallops made using just his mouth. Widely acknowledged as one of the most adventurous performing artists around, he’s collaborated with artists as diverse as Jarvis Cocker, Bjork, Ed Sheeran and DJ Yoda, appeared at Edinburgh Fringe with his one-man theatrical show ‘Mouthtronica’ and held the position of Director of the world’s first beatboxing choir. The grownups love him, we’re sure the kids will too. This is your second Jersey Live a er appearing here last year – what are your lasting memories of JL 2013? Such a gorgeous, sunny place to visit and it was awesome seeing so many young people enjoying new music. What were your first festival experiences? My first festival was Glastonbury in 2005 where I was performing with Foreign Beggars. The whole experience completely blew my mind and by the end of the weekend there was mud in places I didn’t know existed. From that day that was it, I was totally hooked on the festival lifestyle. What have been your favourite festival experiences? As a punter, it was watching The Prodigy at Glastonbury 2009, everyone was going mad, there were flares going off in the crowd and everything. As a performer there are too many to choose from but if pushed, I would have to say it was performing on the Pyramid Stage. That was insane. You’ve embarked on so many ambitious and adventurous projects – which have been the most rewarding and which have presented the biggest challenges? Creating the beatboxing choir was pretty scary as our first
show had sold out at the South Bank Centre before I’d even introduced the guys to each other. But they totally smashed it. Tell us about about what the kids can expect from your Beatbox Adventure at this year’s festival? It’s a super fun journey through musical time and space where everyone and anyone can be a beatboxing super hero. What tips can you give to any budding young beatboxers? Do you just have to be born with the right equipment, or can anyone learn? Anyone can learn, I’ve taught two-year-olds up to grannies - you should hear some of the sick lip bass those nans can produce . What new projects do you have on the horizon? I’m writing a whole new solo project, which is super electronic and I’m really enjoying it – watch this space. Finally any last words for the Jersey crowd ahead of your appearance at the festival in August? Bring on Jersey Live 2014, it’s gonna be amazing.

MEET THE TEAM MARK CHARLTON SITE BUILD CREW & COMPERE
It’s no understatement to say that Mark Charlton has been part of the very fabric of the festival since we launched back in 2004. He’s lugged amps, he’s rigged stages, he’s dug trenches and now, to add another string to his bow, he’s our Main Stage compere! Anyone who knows him will know that his sheer force of personality means he’s right at home on the big stage. Mark, we salute you. How did you first get involved with Jersey Live? I’ve known and been good friends with the Warrens for years; I share their love of music and believe in their vision of a music festival in Jersey. What are you memories of the first festival and what was your role then? I remember being very excited, and a brilliant performance from Razorlight! I was mostly involved with the site build back then. When do you personally start working on the site build, and what does your week’s activities entail? I start work on the build six days before and things get very busy with Heras fence-building, putting up the festival flags, stage-building, and then I jump on the Main Stage and start introducing the bands so basically I live and breath Jersey Live!. What’s been your favourite Jersey Live moment? Tricky one – there’s been so many, probably my first year compering on the Main Stage and introducing all my favourite bands!
You’ve been part of the island’s music scene for many years now - what have been your favourite musical moments in Jersey, and how has the scene changed over the years? I’ve had some great music moments here; Stiff Little Fingers, Ocean Colour Scene and some brilliant nights at the Splash that were purely priceless. I think unfortunately music venues have become thin on the ground, which is a shame because there are a lot of brilliant young bands and singers in Jersey right now. Hopefully this will change in the future! What are you most looking forward to about this year’s Jersey Live? Bombay Bicycle Club for sure. If you could pick the line up next year, who’d be headlining? Manic Street Preachers. Top festival survival tip? Be yourself!
