TITP 2016 Guide: Jasper James

Glaswegian DJ shares his festival secrets from chicken palak curry to Buckfast

Worst thing you’ve done at a festival?
Fell backwards off stage in front of a couple thousand people, not my proudest moment. Couple tequilas too many.

One festival essential?

Weirdest thing that's ever happened at one of your gigs?
Recently I was playing a gig in Belfast and on my way to the toilet a geezer was sick all over me, literally covered me head to toe, so I DJ’d taps aff.

Favourite thing to eat before or after a gig?
I’d probably go for chicken palak curry.

Your dream festive lineup?
Prince, MJ, Luther Vandross, Marvin Gaye, Biggie, Ron Hardy.

If you were to headline TitP, what song would you close with?
It would be whatever felt right at the time but I’ll say… Midland – final credits; (absolute belter) that vocal is unreal

Any hidden (non-musical) talents?
Rock, paper, scissors. I can beat anyone.

What’s your festival recovery tip?
Can of Irn bru, two ibruprophen, then get back on the sauce.

We're making T at T in the Park this year – how do you take yours?
Milk and 2.
