In the City festival was fantastic this year. There was a real buzz about the events, centring on the festival’s Twitter feed.

In the City is traditionally a festival where next year’s acts break – and there were some really great acts I stumbled on this year, without having really seen or heard of them before.

Highlights were the Kill van Kulls, who I’d heard on All FM a few times, but had never seen live. Also enjoyed Crystal Castles, D/R/U/G/S and Mount Kimble — all acts which have a dancier vibe.

There were some gems at the Band on the Wall, including Ruth Theodore, Seerauber Jenny and Tim and Sam — all introduced by BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson.
