This summer was a blur, with our trip to Bali, my parents visiting from Ottawa, Lo and Kev from Busan, and Jenny from Vietnam. So Global Gathering electronic music festival seemed the perfect way to finish off the amazing times we had and say good-bye to the warm weather. With a massive outdoor venue, ideally set beside the Han river, Global Gathering provided the perfect opportunity to have one of those nights you find yourself wandering home in the morning sun, broke, lost, deaf, and completely at peace with the fact that you lost one of your shoes. Also, somehow Korea was able to swing a mind-blowing lineup featuring FATBOY SLIM, JUSTICE, and ARMIN VAN BURREN! Needless to say the stoke was burning high.
Upon arrival I was intrigued by the sea of taco trucks and Jagger tents, I knew this night was chalking up. Two tacos down and a fist full of Jagger (5 for $20), Justice hit the stage and I held onto Selina for her life, shielding her from crowd surfers and a crowd going nuts for Justice's heavy acid organ drops. It was a mashy good time. Afterwards as we were refuelling with more Jagger bombs and butter chicken there was a summoning calling from the main stage "I want to praise you like I shhhooouullldddddddddddddddd." IT WAS TIME. I have seen a lot of DJs . . . hands down FatBoy was the most schooled in the art having thousands of people leaping and screaming for two solid hours. No down time, zero. Not even a bit. All in all a wonderfully charming evening!
