Main Stage, 28 Aug
Friday nights in London’s Kentish Town meant “Wendy May’s Locomotion”, a club night which from 1986 – 1993 regularly pulled in 2000 music lovers & dancers and gets featured in Nick Hornby’s book “ 31 Songs”.
Frequented by the likes of Madness, Elvis Costello, Paul Weller & The Pogues. Fatboy Slim did one of his first ever DJ sets warming up for Wendy when he was the bass player with The Housemartins, and Phill Jupitus first took to the decks at her club!
In ‘87 she co-presented the last series of The Tube for Channel 4 with Jools Holland & Paula Yates whilst also being the only female DJ on London’s Capital Radio. DJing for the past 35 years, including Glastonbury NME stage, Miner’s Strike benefit gigs, tours with various bands and top comedians, she is still happiest dancing behind the decks spinning her favourite records from her collection!
Wendy May also has a regular show on Eddie Pillar’s Totally Wired Radio.
