WHY GENERATION? ATTENDS SAVE OUR SCENE

Last Sunday we took to the streets and showed the government what music means to us. It’s not just a hobby or a pass-time, to thousands of people including myself, it’s our livelihood.

Full capacity at Wimbledon, the Euros and whatever else the tories are a fan on. Why shouldn’t music be the same?

Thank you to all the musicians, the organisers and everyone else who came together to create an incredible day of music.

It was very much appreciated 🧡

Best Performance, Biggest Surprise, Best Headliner? Why Generation Reviews Reading Festival

Reading Festival, 3 days of non-stop music, giving a platform to some of the best musicians around now. As the festival returned for the first time in 2 years, the expectations and pressure were riding high. This had to be a pretty spectacular weekend. And let us tell you, it 100% was.  So here is our roundup of the stand out performances from the weekend. Hopefully, we'll see you there next year. 

REVIEW: ALT LDN 2021

Isle of Wight Festival 1970. A remarkable event that to this day people still rave about, kids tell their friends they wish they had been there, the lineup was impeccable, it was a perfect festival. Except for one thing...  it wasn’t. It was an operation, organisation mess. Yet it still went down in history as an iconic festival.  There have been different things said about the lead up to ALT LDN, a brand new day festival for alternative rock and hip-hop. Acts confirmed to play and then pulled out much to ticket buyers dismay, (but believe it or not, even festival organisers can’t control covid-19). 

LIVE: Diiv at O2 Kentish Town Forum, 27/02/20

Fewer bands have been through a transition as profound as DIIV over the last 4 years. Zachary Cole Smith's recovery from the addictions that shaped their first two albums was evident as soon as the band put out the lead single from their third album Deceiver, Skin Game, and didn't so much hint as scream the fact that Smith was over the worst, slowing his life down and becoming a more reflective artist/human being.
