Party Report: Hideout Festival 2017

Upon touching down at Croatia’s Split Airport for 2017’s, seventh edition of, Hideout Festival, I truly didn’t know what to expect from it, the location or the crowd. I can admit here that, contrary to (I’m sure) many out there, I’m not necessarily a person drawn to the tropics, an over amount of sunshine, or beach culture in general. In fact, my previous week’s Iceland excursion was, at first, much more up my alley with its constant overcast, rain, and sub 10 degree temperatures. So, going from cold Reykjavik pretty much immediately to the sunny shores of the Adriatic seemed ... Read more

Who would have thought I would finally break the curse and see Adam Beyer perform, he’s been literally a hero of mine since I bought his records back in the 90’s and for some reason, I could never manage to see him play. Though, I wish ... Read more
