With the Summer sun due to set, we thought we’d take a look back at our favourite moments from 2014’s summer season.
TOMORROWLAND’S 10TH BIRTHDAY
The world famous Tomorrowland celebrated 10 successful years as one of the most sought after electronic music festivals in the world, and what a birthday it was!
Taking place over two weekends instead of one, many DJs who had played over the years had returned to help blow out the candles, as well as some fresh faces. Relive some of those moments in the after-movie below, and don’t forget to join our mailing list for updates when available.
THE RETURN OF OUTKAST
Another highlight involving a birthday was the live return of Outkast, who this year were celebrating the 20th anniversary of their career. To celebrate the hiphop duo confirmed a 40 festival date tour including the desert delight Coachella and Bestival in the UK.
There are tons of excellent live videos on YouTube, a testament to their popularity amongst fans who are hoping for a new album (although this has unfortunately been denied by Big Boi himself)
Check out there performance at Lollapalooza below:
BESTIVAL’S HUGE DISCO BALL
As well as annually trying to break the world record for most people in fancy dress at a festival, Bestival gained another medal in the form of officially having the world’s BIGGEST disco ball on site.
Raised above the crowd and spun during Chic with Nile Rodger’s finale set, the huge sparkly wonder had a diameter of 10.33 meters and 2,500 mirrored tiles to shine.
We were in attendance and check out our photo below of the ball a couple of days before it was raised.
DOLLY PARTON’S SET AT GLASTONBURY
Despite being a long reigning legend, Glastonbury was Dolly Parton’s first festival performance and it will certainly go down in history as one of the most uplifting yet. With many countless highlights of a set that cheered up a very rain-soaked crowd, we love that the performance give birth to the two greatest Dolly GIFS ever
Taken from when Dolly hilariously played the Benny Hill theme tune on a saxophone. search YouTube for her festival performance and we promise you won’t be disappointed.
PARAMORE’S POWER CUT TRIUMPH
Reading & Leeds had an outstanding line-up this year however many were split on the high ranking of Paramore. Proving the doubters wrong and sharing some of their set with Queens Of The Stone Age, the most talked about moment was their lovely acapella performance during a power cut to parts of the sound system.
With the use of one microphone Hayley Williams and the boys performed ‘The Only Exception’ with the crowd joining in and the power cutting back in at the perfect moment.
