WAIT I KNOW EXACTLY WHICH ONE YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT. IT’S SO GOOD.
(heads up this is gonna be the lamest review ever written because all the things I wrote down on my phone to remember were written while drunk-ish in the queue for the bathroom)
Like wow omg I still can’t believe that happened???? Basically Nick was headlining this charity music festival that happens the Saturday of my uni’s freshers week and it still doesn’t feel real to me
so basically melia ianchaloner's post was 100% correct. First off he is not as terrible as he makes himself out to be at all - in fact it’s quite the opposite. The rest of the festival was meh (I personally only liked two of the other five acts and it took until the fourth one to actually get people dancing instead of sitting around and drinking) but I didn’t see a single person there who didn’t enjoy his set and I was so so glad.
Also he confirmed that as cool as he is, he is also a massive massive dorkwad and it’s amazing. He opened with Jump Around and I burst out laughing when I realised but it totally worked and got everyone dancing and having a great time. The only other songs I wrote down that I remember him playing were this really cool Rather Be remix, 99 Problems (turns out I hadn’t lived before seeing Nick shout the chorus in front of nearly 2000 drunk uni students. who knew), Turn Down For What, Gold Digger, and Bugatti. But it was a really great mix of cheesy throwbacks and current hits and the crowd was going crazy and he did a fantastic job with the actual DJing. He ended by asking how many of us had been drinking (answer - all) and then he was like ‘I have a secret…I have too!’ and then launched into Drunk In Love and it was hilarious and perfect.
But basically he was just like I’d imagined he would be except better because it wasn’t my imagination. He was just so so into it and constantly bouncing around and singing every word to every song and was really great at interacting with the crowd and every time he took off his headphones he had to fix his quiff it was really cute tbh and you could tell he was taking his job seriously but also having an amazing time and people on stage kept hugging him and laughing with him (I’m pretty sure they were the student organisers but not 100%) and at the end he told us we were his favourite gig he’d played all year and wow okay it was super great I feel so happy and so lucky to have seen him DJ can he please come back to my uni soon and never leave thanks
