4 things getting me buzzing for Hideout 2013

Not exactly a bad setting is it?

Not exactly a bad setting is it?

As of 4am Friday morning, I am on holiday! Nice as my friends / girlfriend may be, the Hideout festival itself in Novalja is what’s getting me truly excited. Let’s discuss why.

1) The line up is unreal

If I'm honest, the really cool masks also draw me in

SBTRKT, Julio Bashmore, Chase And Status, Four Tet, the list literally goes on and on and on. There are an amazing string of artists playing Hideout this Summer, and it’s amazing that the festival has become as influential as it has. My personal highlight surely will be SBTRKT, as a forewarning to anyone there, when Hold On comes on, I’m gonna have to help Sampha out by singing every single word. Sorry about that…

 

2) The Location

That photo above says it all really doesn’t it. For anyone who knows me well enough, I am borderline obsessed with being well tanned. The beaches of Croatia look unbelievable, and one of the highlights suggested via the Hideout website has been watching the sun rise over the mountains out there. As much as this is a festival of banging music, there also promises to be some pretty sweet vistas and whatnot to enjoy with everyone.

3) Boat Parties

Because drinking on a boat is obviously the best way to do it

I’ll admit it. In Zante last year, I was a massive loser and my lack of money / food left me all sulky, meaning I bailed on our group boat party. This year will be a different story. Live sets from some of the top DJ’s around the world, all while cruising in some fat boat, dancing my feet off? Not to be missed again.

4) Being with my mates

Couldn't be too mean to them could I?

Apologies Louisa and Lucca, I couldn’t find a photo of all of us! To everyone at Hideout this year, let’s all have a sick time
