Sounds of the Baskerville 6-8 June 2014 – interview with festival organiser Catapult Records!

UPDATE: UNFORTUNATELY THE FESTIVAL HAS BEEN CANCELLED. PLEASE CONTACT 029 2166 0633 FOR INFORMATION ABOUT REFUNDS.

Many years ago when I first moved to Cardiff as a student, I did what most people do – went out and found myself a part time job to pay my way through uni. That job was as the Saturday gal in dance music specialist record shop, Catapult Records (back then it was in the High Street Arcade – now it’s just round the corner, in the Duke Street Arcade).

Lucy, Simon and the Catapult crew have been putting on drum&bass nights in the Vaults for some time now – and this year, they’re throwing their first ever FESTIVAL up in Baskerville Hall! I asked Lucy to explain a little bit about the festival and what you can expect.

Q. Tell us about the Baskerville weekend – how did the idea come about?
A. No one else is doing anything like it. We’ve enjoyed taking events to exciting places and these two factors are reflected in the national response to this party.

Q. Why the venue and have you attended any other festivals there – Freerotation etc?
A. The venue itself much like Catapult has a lot of rave history. It hosted its first Fantazia event around the same time we opened our doors, it seemed the perfect place to host this event.

Q. You have a great line-up including Marky and Stamina – what’s the process for deciding who would suit the event?
A. Camping is included in the ticket price & is set in the lawns of the hall. You also have full access to an indoor heated swimming pool, indoor showers and toilets, the comforts you never get at Glastonbury. We had one objective, to put a lineup together we`d never seen before representing the strongest artists in our opinion of drum & bass past present and future.

Q. Tell us about some of the fringe activities happening – what can clubbers do when not on the dancefloor? Why should people get involved and come to the event?
A. The grounds of the stately home itself are a terrific place to chill out, we are enhancing this environment with good food, good music and good times. Camping is included in the ticket price and is set in the lawns of the hall. You also have full access to an indoor heated swimming pool, indoor showers and toilets, the comforts you never get at Glastonbury.

Outdoors you can indulge in sounds from our Safari Truck sound system in the Jungle Jungle Installation, good time vibes from the Tea Club crew along with the party Rolls Royce where you can expect a mash up of wonder and classics where house meets disco meets everything phat with some very special guests. We’re bringing some of Cardiff’s finest street food vendors so you can relax with delicious, fresh food provided by Chucks, Hautedogs, Wood Fire Pizza Inc and the Welsh Coffee Company. You can also shop vintage clothing at the infamous Rockola Reborn stall & source your festival outfits whilst wafting between chill out bars. Not forgetting the outdoor cinema showing some of you fav films & the Saturday night jungle theme fancy dress party.
