Future Music Festival was the place to be this Sunday past. For the last long weekend of summer (and summer festivals) it was an a beautiful day at Ascot Racecourse.
Though it was 1.4 kilometres ‘tween some stages, the layout of Future gave opportunity for 29,000 people enough space and plenty of shade, with idyllic hideaways and full moons, team it with a whirl on the Ranger and a skate at Silent Disco, these kids looked happier than pigs in mud. However it wasn’t until the sun started it’s descent and took the heat off with the breeze, that the party really started.
All bets were on The Prodigy being the best for a Future headline act but I must admit David Guetta was the DJ that got the crowd into that golden summer festival state. Franz Ferdinand seemed kind of out of place, but regardless of that are always fun to watch. Poor ol’ Empire of The Sun were pushed right down the very end of the track and considering Steele’s stage show, totally deserved a bigger, perhaps more central stage. Personal highlights? Spank Rock and Booka Shade.
