Rewind Artful Dodger
DJ Charlesy's currently doing his Capital XTRA show from Down Under where he's touring with Tinie Tempah. He sent us this tour diary to make us feel jealous. It did.
"Bags packed ready for three weeks in Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia.. First 12 hour flight to Hong Kong for a stopover."
"Landed in Hong Kong tried to stay awake the whole flight so I sleep on the next flight; 9 hours to Brisbane, Australia."
"Got to Brisbane safely and now time to enjoy a day off. We headed to a main made beach in the middle of the city. Today was all about staying awake."
"Made it to the evening without sleeping and it was now time for some festival pre-drinks and met up with some friends from London who were travelling."
"First Future Music Festival Show of the tour. Great show, gooood crowd, but few technical issues as is always the way with the first show."
"Stayed around to catch a few sets and the highlight of the day was seeing Knife Party perform in the Haunted House Arena. One of the best shows I've seen in a while. Production, Sound, Visuals were all on point. CRAZZZZZY!!"
"Amazing show. Definitely a louder and bigger crowd then Brisbane (No offence - haha).
"He's my view from the stage in Perth."
"Time to get back to work. Worked my way around some of the dressing rooms to get interviews for my Capital XTRA show this Friday. Had a chat with Chase & Status, Sub Focus & Rudimental who are definitely mental. THE CHICKEN BELONGS TO THEM. Find out why on my show!! HAHAHA!"
Headed out to a club called Shape where Sub Focus and Knife Party were doing a secret show but it turned into an experience of a lifetime. During Knife Party’s set Deadmaus, Hardwell, Chuckie, Martin Garrix & Carnage all jumped on the set. DEFINITELY SOMETHING YOU CAN'T PAY TO SEE!"
"Here I am on a plane."
"Not a boring day at all. Went round site seeing. SYDNEY IS AMAZING!"
"Managed to get some tickets to go and see Dave Chappelle at the Opera House. Such a great experience. He is too funny."
"Long travel day to New Zealand, but got a very nice greeting at the airport. A group of school kids came and gave a performance of a Hukka. Actually quite scary haha!"
"Woke up to the best view and had the breakfast. Liking the vibe of Dunedin."
"Got taken on another site-seeing trip but this time to the Cadburys Factory. It’s a shame I don’t like chocolate."
"Soundcheck done, had a nice mess around doing some old tracks with Tinie then went to visit the steepest street in the world. Like fools me and T run up it. Paying for it now!!"
