Who Am I?

This blog is an exploration into ‘field music’. Frustrated with the lack of online representation for all of the great music you can find across the independent festivals of the UK and beyond, AAA Badboy was started!

AAA Badboy (pron. Triple A Badboy) is my latest incarnation, born from my love for and involvement with the UK festival scene (named after the Access All Areas pass). In my daily life I’m Head Of Music for Boomtown Fair, a forward thinking and theatrical beast of a festival which covers all kinds of music from Reggae and Ska to Folk and Punk or Drum & Bass to Disco or House to Hardcore Techno, so you will find all of this music covered and more.

Check out my Mixcloud page for all manner of mixes.

If you’re unfamiliar with Boomtown, you’re really missing out. Check out this video…

I also play regularly at festivals all over the world either by myself or with my long term partner in crime Matt The Hat (also under various guises). A few to mention have been Glastonbury, Bestival (plus Camp Bestival and Bestival Toronto), Fusion, Secret Solstice, Clockenflap, WOMAD, Secret Garden Party, Festival Number 6, Shambala and Electric Picnic, although there have been many, many more. If you’d like to book AAA Badboy or Big Swing Sound for your festival then contact sam@diplomatsofsound.org

  1. Hey Kaptin, met you years ago outside Clwb Ifor Bach and subsequently came to a few of the Higher Learning nights – Killa Kela sticks in my mind as being particularly awesome! Just wondering – would you be interested in hearing some of my music with a view to blogging it up? I’m a violinist and rapper from Cardiff, now living in Bristol. Mike Dennis

    Hey.
    I have jsut come back from Bestival had an awesome time camped right by the inflatable church.
    Wondered if you’d be able to give me the tracklisting from Friday night from about 1.30-3am in the wedding disco. Some really good techno wanted to know the names of the songs.
    Only ones i recognized were:
    Inspector norse by Todd terje
    Sonnentanz (oliver koletzki remix) by klangarussel
    Could you give any of the names of the other songs?
    Cheers.
    Sam

      I don’t I’m afraid but the DJ Neil F**king Young might well do as he often records his sets. He hasn’t put one up for this year’s Bestival yet but his Soundcloud is https://soundcloud.com/neil_young
