For the first time ever I was able to sit at a single stage for 4 fantastic bands in a row. I don’t think there has ever been as good of a line up as there was Friday night. It was the 3rd day of Summerfest 2015, at the US Cellular Stage. We arrived around 5pm and headed straight over to find seats. We managed to get the second best seats in the place, bleachers tenth row stage right.

The first band was Little Hurricane and they were a great surprise, I hoped it would be a good show but didn’t expect it to be so great. They are a two piece band, singer/guitarist Tone Catalano and drummer/vocalist C.C. Spina, who describe their music as dirty blues. There is a bit of White Stripes mixed with the Black Keys in their sound, but they definitely have a style all their own. I definitely recommend checking out this band. Across the bleachers you could watch a group of kids dancing, helping to confirm that this band is going places and that this is only the beginning.

Summerfest has begun; Wednesday was the first day of the festival and it didn’t disappoint. We got down there around 5pm and our first mission was to find the unlisted stages by the rocks and see who was playing there. The Renegade Stage does exist, I referenced it in my Summerfest Preview post, but it wasn’t the stage I thought it was, that was the Rebel Stage, which is closer to BMO. However, this year there are a few more unlisted small stages over by the rocks, which I think is great as there are often extremely talented unknowns playing and it’s always a good time. You often get a chance to meet them and interact more than you do in other environments.

In 2013 the very first edition of Amsterdam Music Festival was held, rounding up the final days of Amsterdam Dance event and after two incredible editions, organisers are ready to make #AMF2015 a two-day event.

This first artist announcement includes some of the biggest djs in the world, and interestingly enough, the names were announced at one of the smallest bars in amsterdam, café nol. What a better way to contrast the enormous success of these djs taking on a venue like the amsterdam arena than an announcement at such a small, classic bar. With more headlining names to be announced, the third installment of amsterdam music festival is no doubt bound to raise the expectations of dance music fans from around the world.

She’s the best around with the crazy style and her music makes us lose control, so we’re unutterably excited to announce that the incredible MISSY ELLIOT will be headlining Sunday night at our Summer of Love in a European festival exclusive. One of the greatest artists of all time, and a true musical innovator, we couldn’t be more ecstatic that she’s coming to Robin Hill for her first UK show in six years, and what is destined to be one of the most epic Bestival finales of all time. Ever.
