Afternaut to play dance festivals

Afternaut Afternaut will play the Glade and Beat-Herder festivals in June

A Liverpool based electronic artist will perform at two summer dance festivals this year.

Adam Rowley, who creates music under the name Afternaut, will play at the electronic dance festivals Glade and Beat-Herder in June.

Mr Rowley said: "It hasn't quite sunk in yet. It is pretty exciting".

He moved to Liverpool from York in 2011 for a career in sound design and was named SoundClouder of the Day in October 2011.

He added: "Glade was once part of Glastonbury, but got pretty big so broke off to be its own festival. It is pretty exciting in terms of electronic music.

"This year's line-up seems to be supporting a lot of new artists which is really great.

"My set should provide a break from the more intense music."

Mr Rowley played his first gig in Liverpool in March 2012, supporting Luxembourg-based producer Sun Glitters and local outfit Sun Drums, and will play The Shipping Forecast, Liverpool, on 1 June.
