This summer LXN will be attending a string of European festivals recording a backstage diary exclusively for FAULT Online. The diary will document the overall atmosphere, environment and DNA of each festival whilst giving a behind the scenes insight.

They will capture the relationship between music and fashion through photographing and interviewing members of specific audiences. The results from this it will illustrate what modern subcultures are around us and to see what musicians aesthetics ARE transcending through to their fans.

Confirmed festival coverage so far stands as Parklife, Sonar, Latitude, Love Box, Camden Crawl, Beacons and Unknown Festival.

Prior to Sonar, Latitude, Love Box and Unkown Festival I will release bespoke playlists created by artists in attendance along with a written feature of what I’m expecting from each.
This weekend kicks off the summer-long feature with Parklife in Manchester. I like to think of it as the Northeners competitor to Field Day with incredible bands such as Foals, Chromeo, SBTRKT, Disclosure and London Grammar. It will certainly be an unbelievable introductory festival leading into Sonar (Barcelona) the following weekend with names like Massive Attack, Caribou, Woodkid, and Todd Terje. I’m particularly excited to see what Jon Hopkins will bring after the release of his incredible album Immunity last year. Jon Hopkins will be teaming up with Visual Artist Dan Tombs (www.dantombs.net) to bring electrifying projections to sit alongside the set.
