Your Ultimate Gig in 200 Words

Posted on: April 14, 2011

A recent MTV competition that I entered offered one aspiring director, reporter or photographer a money-can’t-buy opportunity to showcase their talents. It gave creative music lovers the chance to live out their ambition at their ‘Brand New for 2011’ live events at KoKo in London, which I won tickets to. Having been instructed to write a 200 word summary of my ultimate gig experience, my entry is as follows;

For one night only, MTV has brought the finest of British acts making waves in the industry to the heart of Camden’s bustling community at the Electric Ballroom. Fusing dedicated fans and fanatics of new music with the most exciting talent of the moment, the vibe is euphoric inside as the crowd anticipate hearing the faint plucks of the harp. As Florence Welch is lowered from a sparkling trapeze above their heads, dressed in a silk gown, harmoniously whispering the opening line to Cosmic Love – Camden know they’re in for a treat tonight.

Celebrating some of the hottest names on the UK scene, the exclusive venue plays host to 2010’s beloved home-grown acts – such as the delicate chimes of The XX, the country twangs of Mumford and Sons and the catchy synth-pop of Critics Choice sweetheart Ellie Goulding. At the forefront of 2011’s upcoming British talents, hotly-tipped songstress Jessie J wows the crowd with her fierce mash-up of quick witted R’n’B and sharp attitude prompting fists in the air. Tinie Tempah is joined on stage by partner in crime Labrinth, who smash it on their track Pass Out sending all gig-goers into raptures. This closes an unforgettable evening with the certainty that UK talent is at the top of its game right now, and doesn’t fall short of putting on a show of worldwide standards.
