Once a year, the BBC utilizes its status as a media giant to boost local economies across the United Kingdom with BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend. This year the traveling festival descended on Middlesbrough, a post-industrial town in the North-East of England. For a town without a single high-capacity venue, this was the event of the decade.

Interview: Arlie on rock stars, spirituality and Soundcloud rap myths

With the amount of traction that Arlie has gained in the alternative music scene, I expected them to be gaudy and polished – a stark contrast to the endearingly goofy three-person trio I had sitting in front of me.
