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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
