A low key event with good acoustics and amazing hidden visuals/lighting play if you looked up to the the ceiling. Spotted them when I lied back flat on the floor. People circled around the stage which was located just below the Roundhouse dome trying to catch a glimpse of the artists. Initially I tried to sit on some elevated platform but was moved by the security. Sometimes it’s good to be right at the back behind the crowd with the vision of the musicians obstructed it turns out.

My art needed a more unlimited freedom and a wider world.” Read More
