The idea of playing at Edinburgh Castle came about early 2020, a long summer of dreaming and a lot of practicing in the hope that just MAYBE the dream might come true, and now it’s finally came to fruition. I can’t believe we pulled this one off. I can now say I’ve contributed to the most iconic landmark in my Scottish upbringing. An absolute mind-blowing moment. Thank you to all involved and here’s to whatever’s beyond those castle walls! – Denis Sulta
To be given the keys to Edinburgh Castle for any occasion is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Hector (aka Denis Sulta) started playing hip-hop in FLY’s Room 2, so to have now filmed a stream with him at one of the world’s most iconic locations, epitomises the success and heights our pathway provides for our homegrown Scottish residents team. With the likes of La La, Liam Doc, Barry Can’t Swim, LF SYSTEM, Seren Seo & many more new exciting artists coming through our ranks, it’s an incredibly exciting time for FLY as we continue to break the boundaries of the dance music landscape. – Fergus Myer, Head of Music & Programming – FLY Events
