RAW POWER FESTIVAL (London Tufnell Park Dome, 26/05/17-28/05/17)
I'm far too old for the prospect of sitting in a muddy field sipping piss-weak lager to seem appealing in the slightest, which means that most musical festivals are now functionally off limits to me. Therefore Raw Power, which takes place in a nice air-conditioned venue in a well-located part of London is a bloody godsend. That Anthony and co. successfully pull out stellar line-ups year after year is the cherry on the cake, with the likes of Qujaku (a heavier, more operatic Bo Ningen), Afrirampo (kawaii avant-garde J-rock), Shitwife (synth-and-drum uber-party!) and Za! (anarchic Catalan duo) all delivering sets that'd put big name Glasto headliners to shame. If you like your music loud and experimental, there's few weekenders than can touch this right now.
