Derby Festé 2013

Whoop! I do love Festé, when it rolls around, it’s always the sign that autumn is here, next up is Halloween!

This year, I didn’t get to see as much of the festé frolics as normal as I’ve been snowed-under with video editing work (the results of which will appear on here shortly).

I got into town just in time to see FlameOz at Cathedral Green and they were very impressive. All manner of fiery, very dangerous-looking dancing and twirling and whirling.

Thankfully, no-one ended up as a flaming kebab.

Then was DJ Yoda. I was a bit wary about this because I thought it sounded a bit passive. After all, essentially we’re just watching a massive screen while a bloke twiddles some decks off to the side, Wizard of Oz-stylee. But I was wrong, Yoda created a performance of live video/audio scratching that got the hundreds of people there singing and dancing and whooping. The best bit for audience involvement was when he played the chiptune version of Blur’s ‘Song 2’ and the crowd filled in the singing.

Nat And Alex

Alex and Nat turned up and had a boogie along with me.

Then we headed to the Market Place where I got some of the tasty grub above and we caught a tiny bit of the Indian drummers:

After that, we were a bit too cold and went for a coffee before heading off home. Wish I’d got to see more but it was still a great night and another reason to love Derby. 😀
