Leopard Ale quickly got the street dancing with their sweet & jazzy raps celebrating good times and friendship with a drink in the hand…
Then local punk band Mutilated State literally ignited the street with their raw power and no fcks given. Locals no strangers to skateboarding - a session took place at the same time on the gap over bar in front of the band, while fists and legs swung in the pit.
After a few 180s and hippy jumps variations, Sam Elphinstone rolled away with a kickflip after a fierce battle and claimed the cash.
Meanwhile, the other side of the street had a mini-ramp setup by Campus, where plenty of prizes got given away for good tricks, and heated sessions were on until local Jordan Thackerey shut the session down with a front blunt on the Volcom extension at dusk…
It was then time to gather inside the venue for some more live music.
Lost Horizon venue is a creative den for the Shangri-La family to showcase art, live music and performance and a natural fit for the 6th edition of the Volcom Garden Experience.
Paul White was setting there uber chill vibes in between live acts with some eclectic selection of classics mixed with some of his productions, and the heat called for lots of cold drinks.
London-based Upset Stomach, a full multi music styles experience, from grunge to more electronic bits, opened up the main stage.
Following on FuckFuckFuck took over with their party garage from Amsterdam, and soon the dance floor was wet from sweat and beers.
Fat Tony was up next and blew everyone away with his energy, rapping, dancing, and hyping everyone while monitoring his tracks on his console on a solo show. A full powerhouse from Texas – check out his new album!

About the bands
Somewhere between DJ Screw and Bad Brains, De La Soul and Scritti Politti sits Houston’s native son, Fat Tony. A singular and experimentally-minded rap artist adept at both traditional regional styles and indie pop, hardcore thrash and melodic candy-painted bangers. He is punk in the platonic sense of the word: experimental and subversive, but also funny, whimsical, and virtuosic.
Dave Jones, better known as ZED BIAS, is a MOBO Nominated Music producer, arranger, remixer, guest lecturer, and DJ, based in Manchester, UK.
Bias’ releases, which explore a more experimental or progressive side of the 2 step garage sound (sometimes described as ‘dark-swing’) have been hailed as a crucial element in the establishment of Dubstep, as a definable sound or genre. He was one of the original resident DJ’s at the infamous club, FWD>>, the East London birthplace of Dubstep culture
The Amsterdam band FuckFuckFuck makes hard punk. With their performances, which are real live experiences, they have already built up a considerable reputation during support programs for The Black Lips, Dirty Fences and ZZZ, among others. The band consists of Hugo, Jits, Joris and Colin, also known from the Skatecafe in Amsterdam-Noord.

Paul White started as a beatmaker from South London whose sample-heavy approach draws from unlikely sources, including progressive and psychedelic rock and post-punk. He made his name over the previous decade by sculpting wonky, psychedelic hip hop mutations, working with everyone from UK favourite Jehst to wild Detroit based Anglophile rapper Danny Brown. He now writes, performs and produces his own take on psychedelic pop music. Since then he has been writing and producing for a number of high profile artists including singer and violinist Sudan Archives, and regular collaborator Danny Brown for his recent album 'uknowhatimsayin'.
LEOPARD Ale is 100% bedroom-made music. From beer talks to quantum physics, the conundrums in their songs blast through the means of hip hop with a twist of surf rock and jazz. Bottoms up.
Bristol based DJ & Producer Revrt delivers high energy sets of Jungle, DnB & leftfield bass music, infused with his high skill set of scratching & pad-drumming to lock you in.
