Every year we have a number of no-shows at Boomtown, often it’s as simple as the artist can’t be bothered that day. This year I don’t think we had one artist like that, however we got slammed with visa issues and plain old lateness issues. Luckily many of the artists who got delayed (far too many due to being detained by over zealous customs officials) made it just in time for their sets, sadly some simply had to turn back. One of those that I was especially gutted about was Alicai Harley whose vehicle broke down on the motorway and got stuck in horrendous traffic. I promise we tried to find a slot later for her but it just wasn’t to be.
Here as a slight consolation prize is her latest single, a straight firing Dancehall track, that could be my favourite yet! It will certainly be getting plenty club play from me.
