What’s it like then?
This video goes some way to describing where we’re coming from as it were…
The music – DJ’s accompanied by live percussion and other live instruments is dance based, often underground and experimental, with a raw live edge. FIRE constantly strives to do something different every event. Drawing influences form a a verity of sources, including global, jazz, IDM, house, techno, breaks and funk, FIRE is as passionate about the audio quality as it is the audio content and utlilises the very latest in audio production and PA technology to get the biggest, cleanest and best sound possible.
The visual side to FIRE is another main draw. Live performances with fire staff, fire poi and fire breathing shows throughout the night outside whilst inside, Multi Media, lighting and AV sets adorn the wall spaces while day poi (indoor poi) acts join the live musicians.
Don’t just take our word for it…
I grew up in Hgte before leaving about 6 years ago… The Fire night on Boxing Day was easily the best thing I’ve ever been to in Hgte and holds it’s own against anything you’d see in a bigger city… honestly it was phucking awesome. Keep giving the people what they want – good diverse music and no attitude or pretence.
