Lush Festival 2018 Lush Festival hosted in Clarens, amongst a beautiful backdrop of mountains and hills has probably been one of the most interesting festivals I had the opportunity to attend. Every day seemed to surprise me in ways I never expected but nonetheless, this was a great festival. Would I attend again? 6/10 On the Bucket List? 8/10 Overall Festival Experience? 8/10 Day 1- Thursday: Getting overly excited about the trip, making calls and packing the last of the supplies.

Thanks for your time dude! Check out one of his tracks below to listen while you read or have a peak at his Soundcloud for more. -Interview- At what age did you start producing and how long did it take you until you realized you were creating something special? Did you play a musical instrument previously? I started producing at 15 years old and prior to that I messed around with drums, but it was nothing serious.
