Monday 7th July - Gilles Peterson's "Worldwide Festival" in Sète, France via Thristian's photos

I regularly like to show international music festivals via insight from friends who have opportunities to play them or enjoy as a reporter / photographer.  Over the years of running the content on this blog I have seen the scene spread with more and more festivals popping up across countries between both the summer and winter seasons.  One of the original truly global festivals is Gilles Peterson's Worldwide (literally) in Sète, France which I still haven't set foot on (OMG excuse the pun sorry) and desperate to visit as it's line-up just looks the best!  This year's acts included Theo Parish to Conan Mockasin and here are snaps of Little Dragon, Fourtet b2b with Floating Points and Bradley Zero captured by Thristian.   The whole thing was streamed live on the website and here you can also see an interview with French radio station Nova.  If you missed the week long celebration of Peterson's selection of favourite upcoming and established musicians, then make sure you check out the awards later in the year!

(Thanks to Thristian for his photos - see more at his instagram  and follow his work as lead programmer / A&R at  and listen in to his Dark n' Lovely Global Roots show on  every Sunday 8pm - 10pm )
