- The label and promoter has events lined up in London, Bristol, Glasgow and Berlin this summer.
Huntleys + Palmers have a string of events planned across the UK this summer, plus one in Berlin.
Fresh from their recent off-Sonar excursions, the outfit will be in Bristol tonight with the artist that so far has single-handedly carried their label: Auntie Flo. Next Friday they've booked French edit master Pilooski at their regular London haunt, Plastic People. They'll have a few more parties there over the course of the summer: Jackmaster and Jam City on July 20th (celebrating a record release by H+P's latest signee, Sophie, who will play live), It's A Fine Line (AKA Ivan Smagghe and Tim Paris) on July 27th and Saschienne (Sascha Funke and Julienne Dessagne) live with Trevor Jackson on August 31st.
In early July H+P will host two daytime events with Cómeme, a label run by Matias Aguayo that's most often associated with a tropical latin bent, making it prime fodder for summer outdoor parties. The first will be in Glasgow (H+P's hometown) and is co-presented by Highlife and Optimo. The bill features Aguayo with label signees Christian S and Ale Paz, plus Auntie Flo and Highlife resident Esa. There will be an after party following at La Cheetah once the party ends at 11:00 PM, with the same lineup minus Esa. The next day they'll head to Brixton for a party with Odd Rituals, featuring Aguayo, Christian S and Ale Paz plus Capracara. Both members of Optimo will DJ as well.
On July 21st H+P will throw their first party in Berlin at Loftus Hall, with many of their core artists (Auntie Flo, Esa and Sophie) plus South American acts Alejandro Paz, Ana Helder and Hugo Capablanca.
