January is a barren, bleak month. NYE becomes a distant memory, you start to change your life (for a week at least), plan ahead and swerve fun. Horrible really isn't it? Well we'd suggest lifting some of that gloom by focusing one one far flung future philosophy; Festivals.

It might be months off but planning your summer now is the best way to get organised and lift the gloom, and there's more options than you think nestled in our festival Finder. We've decided to dedicate our latest podcast to a handful of some of the options on sale at present, with our pick going towards a soiree we've been a part of for nine years; The Wickerman Festival.

We've been behind the Dance Arena at the festival since that point (head here to read up on your history), and the podcast mix is a recording of the headliner from 2013's edition, Greg Wilson. You can next see the legendary disco doyen at Homoelectric on 8th February, and of course get excited about and get tickets for the Wickerman here.
