Six years since its inception and Desertfest London is one of the most exciting and versatile dates on the UK music calendar. A celebration of all things stoner and doom, acts including Sleep, Electric Wizard, Corrosion Of Conformity, Kvelertak and Red Fang have graced its stages over the years. With the full lineup yet to be revealed, 2018's edition already has a wealth of phenomenal acts ready to tear up venues throughout Camden.
Halloween might be a few days away, but the spooks and scares are out in force on the streets of Basingstoke (which to an extent, they are most nights). There might be lots of folks thronging to the Halloween parade dressed in all sorts of costumes, but for the black t-shirted few wading through the crowds, there’s only one destination for aural brutilisation – Sanctuary LIVE!
Growing up is a difficult thing. We struggle to face the seemingly insurmountable challenges of adulthood, equipped with only a flimsy understanding of how an increasingly cruel world works, and a bone-deep yearning for an easier, more carefree time. Growing up as a musician is arguably a similar process – to move on from adolescent feelings and themes and to settle into a more mature groove, unafraid to bare all of your many and varied influences without fear of reproach nor embarrassment.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
