Brighton Music Blog Twelve Days of Christmas : #12 Fatboy Slim

So, there’s a reason that the blog hasn’t been so active over the last few years, and I don’t really need to say what it is. Times have been hard on artists, on venues and on promoters. Outside of the music world though, it’s been harder than anyone else on NHS workers. In the early days of the pandemic we all stood outside and clapped, but that was just a gesture – as far back as April 2020, which feels like a lifetime ago now, Fatboy Slim put his money where his mouth is and announced a free Brighton party for NHS workers. Fast forward 18 months and Norman Cook was finally playing gigs again, and the party for the NHS took place on 11th November at the Brighton Centre. There was another gig the previous night which anyone could have bought tickets to, which was easily my gig of the year. Thanks Fatboy, and thanks NHS.
