Fieldtrip is a debut Music & Arts Festival landing on the stunning Yorkshire Moors between 15th and 17th August 2014. Much like it’s tea drinking inhabitants and their world famous hospitality, Fieldtrip promises a cozy and independent atmosphere, offering lots of local goodness in a lush green site, with panoramic views of the moors and just a short drive from Leeds City centre.

“Fieldtrip Festival is all about one thing and that's having fun from start to finish” says Danny Savage, part of the two-man team that devised the Fieldtrip idea. “There are a number of reasons we opted for a smaller sized festival. Firstly, it’s our launch year so we didn't want to run before we could walk. Secondly, the best festivals I got to (and there has been quite a few!) are the intimate ones the ones where you end up leaving with a new set of mates and when you can embrace every aspect of the event personally. And that's what we are aiming for with Fieldtrip. We’ve put huge attention to detail into all aspects and we don't want anything to go unnoticed or ‘get lost in the crowds” he says of Fieldtrip’s ethos and aesthetic.

Compact and cute, this bijoux affair focuses on fun & participation, taking inspiration from the promoters’ world festival travels, distilling them into one beautifully boutique weekend. There will be cider stalls, a handpicked selection of amazing street food, live comedy and kamikaze karaoke, mud wrestling and unique little habitats to play in, craft stalls and acrobats as well as rap battles, a secret cinema and oodles of locally endorsed real ales from Yorkshires many breweries.

“There’s going be a lot of quirky little pop-up arenas and unique attractions for everyone to soak up when they’re not in the music arenas” explains partner Liam Donnachie. “We’re not really down with the 'everyone has to wear this on the last day’ or ‘everyone has to join in this activity’ kind of vibe. It's more a case of there is gonna be plenty of things for you to be getting on with music, arts, live performances, stand up comedy, mud wrestling, dodge ball and we've even been chatting about getting a ‘tinder’ tent up and running!

With the modest Fieldtrip attracting a super-intimate, 1500 capacity crowd, everyone is going to be more than busy. The camping soiree puts a large emphasis firmly on attention to detail, with a wide variety of live & electronic music spread across 7 specially designed arenas, each one having its own themed environment, to make it a much more inclusive and magical experience. There will be plenty of participatory games, performance artists and in general, no expense spared on production. It’s the little things that matter sometimes Fieldtrip remains a feel good weekend that harks back to a simpler, more fun and engaging time (before the corporate world ruled the festival plain).

As well as a lovingly hand picked selection of local musicians, brands, DJs & performers, there will be a smattering of international talent to really finish the festival in style. The music ethos is about quality, not what’s hot at the minute or trendy and cool the festival sees it their responsibility to provide you with a fresh selection of musical fare, with a new favourite band, or DJ awaiting you at the end of the weekend. “For me the best part of a festival is walking away having experienced new music from artists you've not heard of before” confirms Danny. “To stumble across a new act that you love is what festivals are all about. So with that in mind, we’ve covered a lot of genres across live and electronic music so I’m sure everyone will be satisfied musically and hopefully surprised as well.

London Warehouse Competition: Win a Bundle of 5 Gifts

000TOBDOC copy

London Warehouse Events, better known as LWE have spent the last 3 years putting on some of London’s most cutting edge events, establishing themselves as kings of the warehouse scene. The combination of unusual locations, bespoke production, killer sound and an obsessive attention to detail has meant prominent success. Delivering over 34 blistering, sold out shows across the capital as well as putting on their first sold out Brixton Academy alongside RAM Records. But probably their biggest success story was their New Years Day event at the amazing, grade 1 listed building, Tobacco Dock with some huge artists on the bill. It was truly a moment in club land that many people won’t forget. This time round on the 9th of August, the event coming up at Tobacco Dock won't be any less memorable... 

We welcome one of London’s hottest promoters, Percolate, to host the newly discovered Vaults. First up we have a duo of female DJ's that are taking the house scene apart right now, Dinky and Kate Simko. Portuguese disco head Social Disco Club rounds off the Percolate guests, bringing with them a record crate that is guaranteed to bring the summer vibes. In support are residents Krywald and Farrer aka the Percolate DJ's who will be warming up proceedings.

Metro Area will headline and round off the full lineup in the Percolate room. With their influence reaching into every corner of electronic music, their ability to arrange the best elements of disco in perfect synchronicity and untouchable originality has given them a timeless sound. Summer In The City will be an extremely rare opportunity to see these pioneering musicians play in the UK.

LWE will host the main room and have handpicked a selection of the hottest names in house and techno – a blistering blend of classic summer sounds. We’ll have old school pedigree with a new twist in the form of Groove Armada and DJ Sneak, plus it’s LWE debut for is Lee Foss, who continues to soar on his ascent through the ranks both as a solo artist and a quarter of Hot Natured. Anja Schneider, an LWE and TD favourite, returns to tear up the main room and rounding things off are legendary London party starters and hot of the back of their debut compilation on Defected, krankbrother Mathew Jonson and recent game changers Waze & Odyssey.

This time, down in the car-park, they have called on Damian Lazarus to play host and he’s assembled an almighty array of his Crosstown Rebels. Calling on Subb- An who is set to release his debut album on the label this year; and has a mercurial ear for breaking down the barriers between “can” and “can’t” with his live sets. Watergate resident and Cocolino Records founder SIS joins the Rebel Rave; bringing groovy house and techno that’ll sit perfectly alongside Clive Henry in a bunker that represents the best of the current Crosstown Rebels roster. Not forgetting the incredible Mathew Jonson who will bring one of his legendary live sets to the depths of Tobacco Dock.

This time we went to the land of craft and quality, other than fabulous design mecca: Italy.

Gloria Bellardi produces minimalistic garments rigorously made in Italy with top materials and fabrics. Her designs go beyond seasonal trends in favour of a timeless style.

 gloria1

Gloria was born in Italy, where she attended the renowned Marangoni institute in Milan and collaborated with big names of fashion, like Vivia Ferragamo and Roberto Cavalli.

In 2011 she moved to London. Since then, she worked for Traffic People and several other brands as a freelancer, and she also attended a footwear design course at Central Saint Martins.

Gloria became experienced enough to open her own label last year, at very young age.

The philosophy behind her quarterly capsule collections of unique pieces is to produce versatile items that can be used throughout the year. Her clean designs are made special by innovative cuts and shapes, great attention to details and, of course, excellent fabrics.

For MEOKO's readers, Gloria decided to offer as prize a simple, sexy yet sophisticated bodysuit, made of cotton jersey & pure silk. Soft and comfortable, is perfect for clubbing: pair it with skinny, high-waisted jeans or slouchy pants for a more laid back style; and for hot summer days, dare wearing it on its own, with an extravagant bumbag – cool and super comfy!

Meadows in the Mountains Competition: Win a pair of Festival Tickets

Meadows in the Mountain copy copy

Meadows in the Mountains is nestled away within the Bulgarian Rhodope Mountain range, sitting on top of the Greek border encourage you to go wild and abandon responsibilities as you soak up the beautiful, natural surroundings of the uniquely placed festival. After all, it is what it says, Meadows in the Mountains.

 1623628 556851254422474 1362077865 n

 

Aside from the likes of Theo Parrish collaborator and Flowers creator Andrew Ashong, San Proper, Hrdvsn, Jazzanova's Alex Barck and many more underground acts from the world's of house, funk and soul, you can even take a horse and cart ride, have a go at downhill grass bob-sleighing, go on a mountain ramble or for the more adventurous type out there, take a trip on the 'death slide' or subject yourself to a ride on the mountain top zip line.

 

 

 

Shunning the ethos of capitalism for community, pre-fab festivals for a unique experience and the arena-packing superstardom of large-scale festivals for intimate personality, Meadows in The Mountains represents a refreshing alternative within a deluge of paint-by-numbers festivals and events. Just make sure you remember to bring your camera along and more importantly, bags of enthusiasm!
