5 essential live sets for covid-19 escapism.

With the return of live music in the unforeseeable future, live sets are the greatest way to re-live and discover some fantastic artists. Below are 5 key sets from a whole range of genres.

Idles, KEXP

One of the greatest ever KEXP performances, and knowing this was broadcast live on the morning commute adds to the depth and raw nature of this explosive set.

Beach House, Kings Theatre

Beach House transform the Kings Theatre into a dream-pop hub. Their 4am set at Primavera the previous year, was one of the defining moments of the festival.

Bon Iver, Primavera Sound 2017

Justin Vernon brings his ambient sounds to the Parc Del Forum. Alongside a very strong 2017 lineup, Bon Iver bring a calming tone to current times.

Arcade Fire, Lollapolooza 2017

At the height of their Everything Now tour, Arcade Fire bring an eccentric mix of their back catalogue to Lollapolooza. Always a huge show, filling the stage with musicians and atmosphere.

Squid, 6 Music Festival

A short clip of Squid’s recent 6 Music show with Bombay Bicycle Club, I was lucky enough to check these guys out at DIY Space for London pre-lockdown. Nothing but success is coming for this band.
