Global Gathering day two review by birminghammail.co.uk:
It’s a given at this point that you head to any festival in the UK fearing rain.
Our typical weather can dampen anyone’s spirits, but you shouldn’t underestimate the effect of waking up in a tent that is boiling hot. Not that we’re wishing rain upon ourselves.
Heading back to the car is an early stumbling block in the day. Most of the contents had been cleared out.
Like most people, we spend the day seeking shade in between the acts. L5.50 for a ginger beer suddenly feels like a bargain.
Ninja dressed DJ Jaguar Skills is an early highlight in the day and arguably the first act to get everybody moving properly. By the time his set finishes we feel the need to quickly rehydrate before we get back amongst the fun.
We decide to check out the VIP area which turns out to be a strong move as it is entirely covered in shade. The area is sponsored by DJ Mag so there are acts performing in here.
There’s comfortable seating and even a Jacuzzi if you manage to book in time. VIP is available to anyone who chooses to pay extra for their ticket.
Knife Party warm the crowd up for The Prodigy in the best possible way.
The duo, who were formerly part of Pendulum, are no strangers to Global Gathering and their dubstep wakes everybody up just as the sun is beginning to weaken. Suddenly, the crowd can’t wait for The Prodigy.
We don’t have to wait long and the drum and bass legends are in fine form.
They open their set with Breathe and move quickly through a barrage of hits that includes Voodoo People, Omen and Poison.
The crowd screams back every word and dances to every song. Even the new material from their forthcoming album receives a strong reception from what is quite clearly a crowd that have come to see The Prodigy.
After that it’s hard to decide what to do with so many stages still open and so many DJ’s making similar noises.
If there is a problem with Global Gathering, it’s that everybody but the most dedicated dance music fans will soon get a little tired of it.
It’s an incredibly enjoyable experience but we weren’t wishing for a third day.
On the other hand, if you’re that passionate about dance music, this festival would be your haven.
