How Does It Feel To Be Loved? Virtual Dance Party
Saturday June 13th, 9pm-2am BST.

While everyone is on lockdown and self-isolating, we're running virtual dance parties, so we can feel connected and dance to our favourite indie pop and soul songs in our living rooms. Stock up on your favourite tipple, push the furniture to the walls, turn up the volume, and join us in a virtual party!

We're very pleased that we'll be joined this week by Bobby Wratten of Lightning In A Twilight Hour, Trembling Blue Stars and The Field Mice, who has put together an hour guest DJ for us. His set will run from 11pm for an hour and 15 minutes.

Ian HDIF - First two hours
Bobby Wratten - Guest set for 1 hour and 15 minutes
Ian HDIF - Final one hour and 50 minutes

All of our virtual dance parties are free of charge, but if you'd like to make a donation, that would be very welcome. You can donate here -

How Does It Feel To Be Loved?

Yes, I was surprised to see that Jayhawks record cover. I thought it was a new Sylvie Vartan compilation at first. I can't find a photographer credit for the photo, but the full photo is here -
