Marvellous Island Festival 2022


We went on Sunday June 5th. This is a terrific Festival a good mix of different DJ and genres – some excellent sets, some less so

Dave Clarke is a beast, you really haven’t experienced Techno unless you have danced to one of his sets. Like visiting Berghain for the first time you maybe are a bit jaded and think you have seen or experienced everything and you realize that magical moment and the feeling of being in the best moment in time and place is now. After he played there was Paula Temple she delivered the goods, these two DJs where the best part of the festival. Len Faki was great as always but he started too early in the day

Also Very good on the main beach Stage was Kink (live) and Denis Sulta

But We find the Headliner Boris Brejcha melodramatic, although his (and others) exaggerated emotionalism seems to be in fashion (eg. Tale of us, Solomun, Afterlife, Cercle events etc.) but “Melodic Techno” is just not danceable enough. Although in Boris Brejcha’s case after he gets thru with the excessive histrionics and playing around with his silly mask, he does deliver the beats nicely you just have to wait awhile and put up with the Instagrammer / tic tockers filming the fake overly emotional sentimental boring stuff
