Giant Step fan, Riki Drori wrote us some words while at the festival: “Greetings from the best kept secret in the world of music – the Worldwide Festival in Sète at the South of France. Kudos to Gilles Peterson for making it happen again! And thanks to Giant Step for always bringing us the best, most updated music. This is our second year at the Worldwide Festival and it is really a dilemma to write about it online; On one hand you want to give credit to Gilles and his team for making one of the best music festivals, and on the other hand, you want to keep it a secret – because one of the coolest things about this festival is the people that come to it.”
Check out some photos from this year’s festivities on Flickr.
The caliber of talent was a little out of control: Raphael Saadiq, Flying Lotus, Jamie xx, Mount Kimbie, Cut Chemist, Lefto, Simbad, Benji B, Dam Funk, Quantic, Owiny Sigoma Band, and James Blake.
We are anxiously awaiting next year. Yes, already.
