Cardiff Arts Institute have clinched victory in the battle for ownership of Ellie Goulding on Feb 4. Xbox Reverb posted this about an hour ago:
OK, it’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for…(voting Cardiffians in particular). Congratulations go to: CARDIFF ARTS INSTITUTE!!! Massive thanks to Buffalo and Clwb who have so enthusiastically embraced our interactive gig idea and rallied the troops! It’s been our biggest vote so far, we can’t wait to get to Card…iff as it is clearly bonkers out there. More news about the gig coming soon so stay tuned!
The venue’s hype machine has been working flat out for days to win, and I think when this incredible video (above) was issued a few hours ago we all knew they’d dealt the knockout blow. Clearly, nobody wanted it more than Jayde Goulding, and nobody deserved it more than CAI. Well done you!
Meanwhile, if you voted for CAI and you’re wondering how to get your ticket, well, too bad. They’ve all been snapped up already. What, did you honestly think all of CAI’s supporters (over 1000 at least) could have fit inside? No, of course they couldn’t, so just be happy that they won, you ungrateful bastards.
