Annie Mac Essay

650 words - 3 pages

As of 7pm on a Friday, the weekend officially starts on Radio 1 with Annie Mac. No pre party would be complete without an Annie Mac set blaring through the speakers and whatever problems you faced during the week, now seem irrelevant after that first drink. Now imagine seeing Annie and special guests work their magic in a sellout party of 2700 people in the o2 academy Leeds. I was lucky enough to attend this musical soiree on Friday and had the chance to see some of this year’s hottest talent with my own eyes.
True to form, my friends and I managed to push our way to the front – yes, we are those annoying people who barge past you at gigs – just in time for the party to begin. First to grace the stage were Disclosure, who got the crowd going with chart toppers “Control” and “Latch”; Annie Mac even tweeted at this point ...view middle of the document...

She stood behind the somewhat makeshift DJ booth (it resembled a table covered in tin foil – in fact, I think it was a table covered in tin foil) and mixed all that was good from 2012 with old school classics and anything with a beat the crowd could bounce to.
Annie’s music and sheer talent speaks for itself, but my only criticism is her lack of flare. Perhaps she is deep in concentration and lost in the music, but the lackadaisical look on her face makes her appear disinterested and like she’d rather be anywhere else but on that stage; though I’m sure the look on my face would be sheer horror if I were to stand in front of 2700 rowdy students.
Ok, I know I said that was my only criticism, but I have one more – drinks prices. After reluctantly paying £5 for a watered down single vodka and cranberry – which as a student is an extortionate price and could feed me for a week – I turned around and a guy knocked it straight out of my hand. Not only was I now drinkless, but also wearing a white top covered in red cranberry juice! Admitting defeat, I intrepidly barged my way to the front again in time for Magnetic Man.
The crowd’s enthusiasm flagged as the clock struck 4, until Magnetic Man dropped Dismantle – Computation VIP which you can’t help but jump up and down to with your hands in the air, screaming and smiling like a mad man.
Regrettably, I didn’t stick around for Redlight’s set which is unfortunate as Redlight – Get Out My Head is one of my favourite tracks on the Annie Mac Presents 2012 album, but McDonald’s was calling and there’s only so much jumping up and down whilst pinned against a barrier a girl can take.
All in all, it was an amazing show and if I could, I’d follow Annie across the globe to the likes of Ibiza and Amsterdam just to watch her sets. But until next time, I’ll have to make do with weekends in listening to Radio 1.
