Contents With the UK set to leave the EU on the 29th March (well, maybe), we can’t help but hum Europe’s classic ‘The Final Countdown’ with an undertone of uncertainty. But one thing we can all agree on is that our friends in mainland Europe boast some of the best festivals - and that’s something we all want in on! In comes our handy European Festival Guide. We also caught up with our cover star Nina Nisbett about her new record, life on the road Stateside and her upcoming UK tour.

DEVIN TOWNSEND


up to the shows with tattoos featuring lyrics from the new album. It’s amazing to see my music affecting people in real life.”

Nina Nesbitt is on cloud nine. You can hear it in her voice. Dialling in to talk to The Live Guide from the other side of the Atlantic – where her face is currently plastered across billboards in Times Square – Nina’s lilting Livingston tones are buoyed by joy and adrenaline.

Nina is out in the US promoting her new release, ‘The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change’. It’s a record that represents a distinct stylistic departure from her debut LP ‘Peroxide’ – moving away from guitardriven folk-pop and slinking into glossy R&B and soul with an affecting, rhapsodic touch.

“I’ve been working on this album for about a year”

This palpable glee is understandable, of course. These are wildly exciting times for the multitalented Scottish musician. Adverts for her new critically-acclaimed sophomore album are lighting up New York City – and she’s spent the last few weeks performing in front of capacity crowds across the States. She’s giddily caught up in the glow of newfound international stardom.

“This has genuinely been my favourite tour I’ve ever done,” Nina gushes. “I can’t believe so many here in America know my songs now. There are even people turning

“I’ve been working on this album for about a year and a half, so it was really nice to finally get it out there,” Nina explains. “The reaction’s been amazing. It’s got some great reviews.”

“I was a teenager when I released my first singles, but back then I was still figuring out my style. I’ve naturally matured since, and I think the music reflects that on this new


album. There’s a bit more storytelling here and I’ve been working with other artists as well which has helped me discover what I want to do.”

Working with other musical minds has guided Nina’s development as an artist, but she continues to create songs from scratch herself and dabble in production.

Two of the big collaborators on ‘The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change’ are Jordan Riley and Lostboy – both of whom Nina regards as huge influences on the album’s overall success.

“When I started working with them they were two upcoming producers,” Nina tells us. “They’re both my age and really fun. It was great working with people who were passionate about what they did and had such fresh ideas.“

“The first single from the album, ‘The Moments I’m Missing’, I actually wrote and produced in my bedroom,” Nina says. “I did a lot of that when I was younger. Most producers will only work with signed artists, and as I wasn’t there yet, I thought: ‘I’m just gonna do it; I’m just gonna learn this shit myself!’ I’m really interested in production and it’s definitely something I’d like to be more involved with in the future.”

“I also got to work with Fraser T Smith, who has had so many hits and a lot of success working with huge artists like Adele and Stormzy. He really lets you lead the session even though he’s so experienced. He’s a pleasure and I’ve learned a lot from him.”

“What’s really exciting about the music industry today is that you don’t need to be signed to a major label and have a huge budget behind you to make an impact. The streaming services like to support indie artists, and I’ve been really lucky.”

“Streaming services like to support indie artists, and I’ve been really lucky.”

“‘The Best You Had’ has got 50 million streams on Spotify. That is beyond anything I ever expected. It even ended up on Taylor Swift’s ‘Songs Taylor Loves’ playlist! Little things like that are really cool.”

my favourite thing to do. At my first festival at Hyde Park, I actually got so excited I jumped off the stage and then couldn’t get back on. The security guard had to help me back up again. It was mortifying!”

The road to this point has been just as wild as the reception to Nina’s recent record. Between uploading tracks to YouTube as a teenager and racking up eight-figure listening streams, her career has had some major ups – like going on tour with Lewis Capaldi – and literal downs – namely taking a nosedive off the stage during a show in Hyde Park.

Fans will be delighted to hear that Nina is bringing her mic back to Britain next month, and she wants them to know that it’ll be a series of shows to remember.

“It’s going to be a step up from the US tour in terms of the production – we’re definitely going to go all out,” Nina exclaims. “I’ve been touring for seven years but this really feels like a milestone for me. We’re even upgrading the Glasgow show to 1,300 people! I’ll be playing all the songs from the new album and some of my older tracks as well.”

“Performing for a new crowd is exciting”

“I got to go on tour with Lewis in 2018 – which was one of my best experiences,” Nina says. “It was a very different audience to what I’m used to – but that’s the whole point. Performing for a new crowd is exciting. Watching Lewis every night was incredible, too. He is gonna blow up. For a musician, he’s got the whole package.”

Nina’s homecoming begins in Bristol, with dates in Nottingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Birmingham and London. She’ll also be at our very own Manchester Academy on the 13th April - just don’t expect her to jump off stage at any point…

“As well as the gigs, I’ve always loved festivals – they’re probably 21

European Festival Guide 2019 Even Brexit won’t stop the European party this summer. There’s no better way to liven up your city break than adding one of the best festivals around to your itinerary. We’ve rounded up the top 15 music gatherings on the continent - all you need to do is take your pick of the best and get ready to jet off. Just make sure you leave room for those dancing shoes in your suitcase.

NOS Primavera Sound

Best Kept Secret

NOS Primavera Sound in Porto may not have been around as long as it’s big brother in Barcelona, but that doesn’t mean it packs any less of a punch. With a diverse range of some of the best and newest indie, alternative, electronic and hip-hop acts on the planet, there’s something for everyone to enjoy in the beautiful riverside Portuguese city. This year’s headliners are massive and include no less than Solange, Erykah Badu, Interpol, Stereolab and more.

With yet another amazing assortment of artists announced, it’s easy to understand why Best Kept Secret isn’t much of a secret anymore. This summer, the alternative festival boasts Bon Iver, Christine and the Queens, Kraftwerk 3D, Mac Demarco, DJ Koze, Kurt Vile and even Stockport’s own Blossoms. It’s not just incredible music you can enjoy, the surroundings are just as impressive. Best Kept Secret takes place in a safari park, so don’t be surprised if you see a few animals roaming around the site.

6 - 8/6/19 Portugal 2h 40m flight From €103 ADV

Sziget

Exit

If you like your pop music set on an island in Budapest with a side of dance, cinema, theatre and circus shows, Sziget festival is the one for you. The names in lights this year include none other than Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighters, Post Malone, Florence + The Machine, The 1975, James Blake and loads more. If all that world-class entertainment is getting a bit too much for you and you fancy dodging the 550,000 other partiers, you could always head to the on-site beach and take a refreshing dip in the Danube. Paradise.

Set in a magical 18th century fortress, Exit is a festival that you won’t be in a hurry to leave. The line-up is diverse and you can expect to enjoy the best from EDM to punk across a whopping 40 stages. Once you’ve found your way through the fort’s tunnels, trenches and moats, you’ll enjoy The Cure, Carl Cox, Greta Van Fleet, Peggy Gou and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike to name but a few. Outside the fortress, you can enjoy the sights of Novi Sad, a beautiful city that’s one of Europe’s Capitals of Culture for 2021.

4 - 7/7/19 Serbia 4h 20m flight From €99 ADV

Roskilde

Mad Cool

Known as more of a cultural experience, Roskilde is a music festival with a Scandinavian twist. There’s 180 musical acts to enjoy alongside immersive art, tasty food, unique events and community activities. It’s also a 100% non-profit festival. So, you’ll not only be treated to once-in-a-lifetime entertainment, you’ll also be doing your bit for a host of chosen social and cultural charities. So, how about that line-up? Well, it's massive. Bob Dylan will be there alongside Travis Scott, Cardi B, Robyn, Jungle and plenty more.

Although it’s a toddler of a festival at just four years old, Mad Cool will stand toe-to-toe with the cream of Europe’s musical crop. Why? Because it attracts some of the biggest rock, indie and electronic artists on the planet every year. This July you can enjoy The National, The Smashing Pumpkins, The Chemical Brothers, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Vampire Weekend to name just a few. The music starts quite late in the day too so you’re free to explore the stunning Spanish capital and load up on some delicious tapas before you party into the early hours.

If you’re into your EDM, techno, house or hardstyle, Tomorrowland is a rite of passage. It’s the world’s biggest gathering of 5-star dance acts and this year is no different with the top of the bill boasting a mix of mainstream, classic and new. Armin van Buuren, The Chainsmokers and Carl Cox are joined by Charlotte de Witte, DJ Snake, David Guetta and even A$AP Rocky. As well as the music, Tomorrowland is famed for its jaw-dropping stage designs. As part of the 15th anniversary celebrations, the theme returns to 2012’s popular and slightly trippy, The Book of Wisdom.

Hellfest

21 - 23/6/19 France 3h 30m flight From €230 ADV

Whether you're looking for the old favourites or something new, Hellfest treats rock, metal and punk fans to world famous veterans and the latest stars on the scene. From ZZ Top, Kiss and Def Leppard to Tool, Manowar and Gojira, western France is the place to be this June if you're looking for something heavy. As well as the awesome music, get ready to be blown away by gigantic installations and lively pyrotechnics across six incredible stages.

Rock am Ring and Rock im Park 7 - 9/6/19 Germany 1h 55m flight From €189 ADV

If you’re a headbanger, a rocker or a roller you’ve probably heard of Rock am Ring or Rock im Park. Running since 1985, the twin festivals have become something of an institution for lovers of rock, metal and punk and a bucket list activity for those who have yet to attend. 150,000 flock to Nuremberg for both events and in 2019 that adoring crowd will be enjoying full-blooded and thumping performances from the likes of Slipknot, Tool, Tenacious D, Bring Me The Horizon, Slayer and a whole bunch of others.


Rock in Roma 27/6 - 16/7/19 Italy 2h 50m flight From €69 ADV

Welcoming global superstars to the picturesque and historic city of Rome, it promises to be a summer to remember in the Italian capital. Taking place over six action packed weeks, the festival has got another amazing programme lined up for us. Take your pick from a fantastic mix of performers, including Thirty Seconds To Mars, Bad Bunny and Kraftwerk-3D, who make up just a few of the highlights. From June through to July, Rome is the place to be.

Sónar

Dour

The most exciting electronic music acts are set to descend on the beautiful city of Barcelona once again for another year of Sónar. This year there'll be over 130 live performances from some of the best toe-tappers around, including Underworld, Kaytranada, Floating Points, Four Tet, Masego and tonnes more. It's not just about the tunes, there's a wealth of eccentric and innovative art, design, multimedia and cinema to enjoy too. The party doesn't stop for the whole weekend, with a packed programme split across separate day and night sites.

Cool, eclectic and unique, Dour Festival continues to innovate and treat fans to the latest exciting new talent in the music world as it enters its fourth decade. Over 250,000 people are expected to flock to the small Belgian town to take in the talents of Action Bronson, Skepta, George Fitzgerald, Jordan Rakei, Manchester’s queen IAMDDB as well as DJ sets from Bonobo, Bicep, Pendulum, Disclosure and plenty more. Dour by name, but definitely not dour by nature.

18 - 20/7/19 Spain 2h 20m flight From €185 ADV

10-14/7/19 Belgium 1h 20m flight From €170 ADV

Headliners this July include none other than Jamie Jones, Eats Everything, Skream, Hannah Wants and Right Ahmed to name but a few.

Bilbao BBK Live 11 - 13/7/19 Spain 2h 5m flight From €145 ADV

Bilbao BBK is quickly becoming one of the festival favourites on the continent for punters and musicians alike. Surrounded by stunning mountains, beautiful greenery and magical woodland, it's not just the music that'll take your breath away. Yet again, the line-up is equally as impressive as the surroundings though. Our very own Liam Gallagher tops the bill alongside The Strokes, Thom Yorke, Suede and Rosalia. Bilbao itself is a haven for foodies too, so make sure you don't miss out on the local delicacies.

Body & Soul 21 - 23/6/19 Ireland 1h flight From €199.50

As far as festivals go, it doesn't get more immersive and engaging than Body & Soul. Every year at the amazing Ballinlough Castle & Gardens in County Meath, attendees are invited to take part in a diverse range of activities, from debates, art trails, banquets, late night discos and wellbeing workshops. In terms of music, there's a fantastic mix to get yourself stuck into.
