Collective returns to Hereford after six years
As if a day of revelry and community vibes at Hereford River Carnival was not excitement enough, this May London/Bristol D&B collective talent GUT (Grand Unified Themes) return to Hereford for the first time in six years.
The D&B/electronica hotshots are set to host an after-party to end all after-parties at The Speakeasy – at Hereford’s premier venue, Left Bank Village – as part of Hereford’s biggest community event.
The collective, born out of London under the motto “if it can be mixed, we’ll mix it”, come from a variety of musical backgrounds including disco, hip-hop, D&B and garage and have hosted a multitude of events from intimate basement venues to the prestigious Lightbox Club.
Spokesperson for GUT, Sam Herrera can’t wait to return to the city, “I am feeling particularly honoured to be hosting another event in Hereford since the first ever event that I hosted at the former Jailhouse 6 years ago.
Hereford, in my eyes, is a promising ground for music and nightlife, especially since the new development in the Old Market has encouraged more restaurants and bars to open later into the night. The Hereford River Carnival is one more sign that the city is taking pride in its history and culture. I am delighted to see it growing each year and also looking to expand on its nightlight after-parties that I think will attract a younger crowd and create a festival-like atmosphere.”
He’ll be bringing with him Bristol based D&B producers Dialekt and Imba, CL:19 and Praxis and Medic MC.
Advance tickets are available from the Left Bank website priced at just £6.50 or on the door at £9.50.
