Source Comrades at the Pitch Music & Arts Festival
You’re afraid. We’re afraid.
Collective fear is perhaps the only indestructible force for unification because we’re collectively profoundly concerned with individual self-preservation and that requires a tonne of disposable bodies around us as a barricade that we first must charm with faux brotherhood.
These days there are more tangible things to be afraid of than ever. God, of course, is dead, but it turns out that the lack of a hairy, magic, robe-wearing bigot in the sky doesn’t mean the sky won’t rain fire, the water won’t boil and the viral plagues won’t come.
As humans, we’re perfectly capable of bringing apocalyptic wrath upon ourselves. And that requires places in which we can acquire more bodies than ever to scream and dance around us and protect us psychologically and physically from the ever-present hum of our own destruction.
Enter: The Pitch Music & Arts Festival.
Four aural days of music and contemporary art, situated in the forever-still Grampian plains. Bringing together a community of like-minded people for an indelible weekend.
Spearheading this year’s bill are electronic legends Nina Kraviz, Maceo Plex and Richie Hawtin. They’ll be joined by a whole bunch of other international acts, as well as local legends like Kllo, Hiatus Kaiyote, Late Nite Tuff Guy, Collarbones and stacks more.
Fear acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.
A tonne of festival MDMA makes the strangeness a lot easier to accept and the bed a lot more accommodating.
