Stage Focus #2: The Landing. Old school Kelburn-ites may recall the very first festival in 2008 that largely took place on the old tennis court under the gaze of the castle, with @si_bonobo headlining. After that it took us a few years to return to this spot, with a UFO in 2015 - when The Landing... landed! In 2018 we decided to go large in this amazing space, and upped the scale to create a proper and fitting home for electronic music at Kelburn, with @mrgoldie closing the first night of the new stage and kicking off a new era. Since then we've seen some great performances from a varied range of top artists, including @leftfieldmusic @acid_arab @chaosinthecbd_ @ltj_bukem @maxcoopermax and of course @optimoespacio's triumphant closing set on the Sunday this year. More ground-breaking, bass-shaking artists to come in 2023! 💥 ... See MoreSee Less
