I'll be going to Big Chill Festival in a few days, and thought that I should share some of what is going to be entering my head. If you live in the UK (or outside) and can afford to get there...and you're not going, you're missing out! Here's a few bands/artists that are playing -
  • Alice Russell
  • Breakage
  • Calexico
  • Chris Cunningham (Live AV set)
  • David Byrne
  • DJ Format
  • Fink
  • Fourtet
  • Gong
  • Helios (See below for post)
  • Hexstatic
  • Hypnotic Brass Ensemble
  • Lamb
  • Ludovico Eunaidi
  • Mr. Scruff
  • Orbital
To name a few.... seriously...the line up is MASSIVE.

Oh and Bonobo!

To those who haven't heard of this guy, no I will not be seeing a Pygmy Chimpanzee, although it would be good fun....

Simon Green AKA Bonobo is a British composer, musician and DJ. He creates the perfect music for serious chill-out sessions, great music to wind down too. Simon uses a wide variety of samples and his music, often alongside complex jazzy bass lines. His music progresses throughout his pieces, adding bass lines or instruments to the mix. Following his debut album, Animal Magic he knew his musical career has gone forward, when he got signed to Coldcut's record label 'Ninja Tune' in 2001. By 2004 he felt as if he needed to move even more forward not business wise but as a musician, so he formed a band to play live with, this included a singer, keyboardist, guitarists, saxophonist, string section, electronics and drummer. Bonobo mainly plays the bass guitar and leads the band, playing the role as conductor.
