George Ezra - Showcase

We had an amazing showcase with George Ezra yesterday. One at RKCR for their Tea Room Session series, which we curate - and another straight after at Native HQ for Jungle's clients.

George's voice and songs were full of depth and character and we expect big things from him this year. What a way to spend a Monday afternoon.

Thanks to George and the guys at Sony.

The Hanging Gardens, Cannes

We got back from Cannes having had a great time looking after those of you in your more delicate state. We were really happy with the response to our Hanging Gardens, which we co-hosted with our sister company Jungle and good friends at El Carousel. All of this took place at LBB & Friends beach.

Vitality assistants roamed the sands seeking out the needy, and re-vitalising them with a face spritz, shot of oxygen, chilled towels and more. We offered two different kinds of massage and a hammock area with a chilled soundscape on headphones if you desired.

Thanks to all who came down and helped make it a huge success. Maybe see you there next year.
