On a sporadically sunny Saturday afternoon, a park in East London came to life with a heartbeat of electronic dance music. FOUND Festival began with an early afternoon set from 'man of the moment' Cyril Hahn who seems to turn every song he touches to gold. Although the crowd was somewhat non-existent (many of them were still making the trip down from Essex), Hahn built up his set nicely. With that said, his infamous Destiny's Child 'Say My Name' didn't make an appearance, much to the dismay of the crowd who seem somewhat dumbfounded by his exit sans-Destiny's Child.

The weather on the day was contrary at the best of times so the heavy downpours often sent revellers running from the main stage and in to the covered arenas. It was at these times of rain respite that I found myself pleasantly surprised by the less well-known artists including Goulcher, whose dose of Kate Bush left the VIP arena bouncing.

As the afternoon went on, an impressive set from Mexican-born Betoko with his trademark heavy beats was followed by Session Victim, who came with their own spluttering of tribal electronica. As the sun began to finally make an appearance, the main stage was graced by Shadow Child and then Audiojack, who sent the now heaving sea of sun-drenched festival-goers into frenzy with Oxia's 'Domino'. This frenzy was beaten only by Todd Terry's exquisite song selection abilities as he blasted out Armand van Helden's 'You Don't Know Me', followed shortly by Inner City's 'Good Life'.

Just as the tents dotted around the site at Haggerston Park provided respite from the rain throughout the day, a stellar disco saturated set from Floating Points provided a very welcomed alternative mid-way through the day. Along with being an undeniable music highlight of the day, the set also produced some of the very best dance moves the FOUND crowd had to offer.

The evening was eventually rounded up with a back-to-back set from Lee Foss and MK that failed to impress somewhat and one that most certainly did from first lady of house, Maya Jane Coles. The perfect ending to a day that left a large majority of the crowd, myself included, muddy, slightly sunburnt but smiling nonetheless.
