I went to Saintwood Festival at Metropolis yesterday and it was massive. There was Calvin Harris, Laidback Luke, Brodinski, Sound of Stereo, Nero, Love Thy Brother and Kid Aloha. If you don’t care at all about my life, skip to the next paragraph. I went there with one of my friends and when we met, he was already passed out because he smoked too much. Hahaha, must’ve sucked. I “took care” of him (standing by him and waking him up every time I felt like he needed to see something) and went outside to smoke every hour or so. What I really love about this kind of event is that every time you go outside to smoke, you meet about 10 people. I love it. I was really surprised by the number of Europeans out there, I met like 15. For some absurd reason there was also A LOT of McGill Med school students… what the hell.


The show started really early (I missed a little bit of it, it started around 8). The place started being packed around midnight so the show actually “started” around that time, I think that it was Brodinski that was playing during that time, correct me if I’m wrong. To summarize, every single DJ did an amazing job yesterday, but Laidback Luke was the best, HANDS. DOWN. Every DJ had a solid set and I didn’t hear many boring tracks, it kept the hype high.

Calvin Harris came in around 12:45 and he “delivered”. I really enjoyed his set, because it was different from the other DJs that were before him. He played remixes of his own tracks and other disco-ish tracks that got “electrified”. It was a lot and a lot of fun. The crowd really liked him as well. You can probably find videos of his set on youtube.

Laidback Luke was the last DJ to play. And… he was insane. Now I know why he’s a legend. He did amazing transitions and really “DJ”ed with skill. He scratched a little bit as well. That guy knows how to mix and to get the crowd mad. People were going nuts and there was absolutely NO ONE smoking outside when he was playing. Everybody stayed until the end. Laidback Luke is messed up, in a good way.

The night was a success, the lights were really cool, the cotton candy wasn’t too bad either and the beer was… well… still overpriced. I would like to thank Saintwood for organizing the event. Oh also, I found a pair of glasses.

Here are a couple tracks to remind you of the night if you were there, and to make you feel bad for not coming if you weren’t there!
