Friday night went off with a bang when Dutch DJ and producer Young Marco played to a packed Fibbers dancefloor. Young Marco, signed to the Dekmantel label, ignited Fibbers with an eccentric blend of techno and house with elements of afrobeats and world music. Nicely warmed up by his supporting DJs, Grice & Harrison and Fred Salt, the crowd was ready to see the Dutchman play. The night was closed off by Harvington who brought the dizzy night to a satisfying close. The event itself was organised by popular student events company, Blackbox.

A cold Thursday night saw the Love Music Hate Racism gig at The Crescent Community Venue. The cold night was warmed up by supporters: A Joker Amongst Thieves and Joe Solo. The night was finished off by headliners, Crossfire Eagles. I’d never been down to The Crescent before and was unsure as I first walked in; but any doubt was quickly blown away by the warm atmosphere of the venue and the heart of the performing artists. One after another they delivered music gems in a refreshing variety of styles.
