Live Review – Farmfest 2016, Tap the Feed
July 2016

All fired up we return to the Big Blue to catch an artist which could very much be one of the festival’s anticipated highlights.

That artist is Craig Sutton aka The Flamenco Thief; a man who uses one guitar and a loop pedal to make music that’s equal to a full scale band. We are told good things prior to arriving but seeing Sutton on stage blew all our expectations out of the water. Whether it’s the insane speed of his looping and strums or sheer charisma that got the blood flow pumping, this artist is truly something. It’s late afternoon and Sutton is already performing to a packed tent of hundreds – almost as rammed as DJ Format’s set last night. The audience are loving every minute of it, soaking up the blistering whirlwind of acoustic/sonic soundscapes, carrying the fiery Brazilian Samba fever that took place earlier on.
