Asian network’s summer of live and loud music

At the likes of Glastonbury and Bestival you know what kind of stuff to expect – but with the newer festivals like Paradise garden's where I played last weekend you don't quite know what to expect.

At Paradise Gardens in the East of London we got a real cross section: the trendies, with their finger on the pulse, who came to our tent for the latest breaking British Asian music, the crusties who came because it was free and the families because that's their local park.

It was a challenge trying to appeal to them all but if you go onto the Asian Network website and look at our gallery you can see all of these dis – connected groups having a fantastic time together -it really was something special.
