KEVIN ROWLAND DJS AT
HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE LOVED?

The Phoenix, Saturday April 15th

 


Our 15th Birthday Party with very special guest DJ Kevin Rowland.

The legendary Dexys frontman makes a very welcome return to HDIF to help us celebrate 15 years of indie pop, northern soul, 60s girl groups and more. Kevin has DJ-ed at HDIF four times now and each night was absolutely incredible. As well as playing an immaculate selection of music, spanning from Toots And The Maytals and David Bowie to T Rex and the Stooges, Kevin also sang along with some of the songs, making the night more like an intimate gig than a regular club. We're looking forward to seeing what he has in store for us this time around!

Reviews of How Does It Feel To Be Loved?:

"This hugely popular night knows there are few better ways to enter 2017 than with a soundtrack of classic sixties soul and the most danceworthy janglepop and shimmering indie tunes." - Time Out
“A speakeasy for anyone who suspects that their life is one big Smiths song' - Big Issue
'Absolutely the best night in the whole of the world!” - The Guardian
“Much-loved indie pop institution” - The Quietus
“Legendary indie club” - NME
"How Does It Feel To Be Loved has, since 2002, easily been one of London’s best club nights. Its unpretentious and welcoming nature, often fuelled with everything from Belle & Sebastian and Orange Juice to Tamla Motown and Dusty Springfield, swipes away any negative connotations our capital has for being a cold, brutal and rather heartless place." - Music OMH
"With a tag-line of ‘From the Smiths to the Supremes’ it’s the music policy that shapes How Does It Feel To Be Loved?; indie-pop and soul draw a quietly hip bunch of revelers. Best of all they are just so friendly; no aggro or posturing here – it’s all crooked smiles and handclaps." - For Folk's Sake
"With a decade of great nights under its belt How Does it Feel to Be Loved? is one of London's most enduring and influential underground indie get-togethers." Flavorpill
