DJ setlist: Bifröst Rock Disco @ Nine Worlds, London (9/8/14)

At the weekend I returned to Nine Worlds Geekfest, to provide music for the dancing a second year running.

Nine Worlds felt bigger, better and somehow more confident this year. Bifröst Queer Cabaret was a perfect example of this: the live performances were in a bigger room (which was still absolutely rammed) with a massive stage and proper lighting rig. The acts all seemed to feed off the energy of the space, with performances that were by turns funny, reflective, sexy and/or plain fun.

My own set started a little later than planned. It was a bit odd to be in a different room, but was certainly more practical for the sake of setup, and everyone seemed to find their way over without any problem as it rapidly filled up during the first couple of songs. Top props to the fellow cosplaying Thor for declaring the disco open in the wake of "Thunderstruck", and thanks to all who turned up to sing and dance the night away
