As Glastonbury approaches (and the mud and the rain and the sweat and the dirt) why not choose the high life and watch a spot of live music in the comfort of the Sanderson Hotel courtyard. On cushioned sofas no less, sipping a passionfruit cocktail.
For the third summer in a row London’s Sanderson Hotel hosts live music from some of the hottest acts on the circuit, playing to an intimate audience of people who don’t usually hang out in swanky hotels of a Thursday evening. Kicking off the series at the start of the month was Pixie Geldof’s band Violet, blowing her fiercest critics away with powerful, pitch-perfect vocals and delicate melodies, with dad Bob (that’s Sir to you) on the front row proudly taking pictures for the fridge. The second instalment coincided with the launch of talk-of-the-town music zine ‘The Beat’, edited by i-D Music and Features Editor Hanna Hanra and former i-D Art Director Dean Langley. Pulling in The Beat fan DJs Jamie Winstone and Louise Gray, partying down at the decks, the courtyard act was Brighton based band The Shoestrung.
Over the coming weeks, bangin’ British babe Yasmin, bangin’ British model Josh Beech and the Johns (his bangin’ bandmates) and Guardian voted ‘New Band of the Day’ Glasser (they’re probably banging’ too) take to the stage. So as hundreds of thousands brave the mud fest, sit back, relax and enjoy the facilities (they smell heavenly) at Sanderson Predicts!
