Joia Like It Hot
News By Subject
After the success of the Emerging Icons residency at London 2012, we feel like we could take on anything.
The world is our oyster, lobster, crab... all the shellfish you can imagine right now as the momentum builds and our reputation for hosting the freshest new talent continues to grow.
We asked all of our Olympic Park artists where they thought the next Emerging Icons stage should appear- and we got quite a mix of responses. "The moon", some of them said. Obviously we could organise that at the drop of a hat- but we were just a little concerned about the acoustics what with the suffocating vacuum of outer space and all. Others suggested Glastonbury- and we would be definitely be down with that. The world's most famous festival is just crying out for the inclusion of our artists on their bill, although we would perhaps worry about the inevitable rainclouds.
It was rock-pop band Joia who threw in a most excellent suggestion. Somewhere cool, but not the moon. A great festival atmosphere, but with gorgeous weather. There was only one answer. Find out here...
