Goldierocks will be at Taste for the first time this year, so excited to see her!
Goldierocks, AKA Sam Hall, is an international DJ and broadcaster with a celebrity following that includes Madonna, Giorgio Armani, Richard Branson and Jade Jagger (she’s performed exclusively for them all).
Her weekly global radio show ‘The Selector’, legendary to those in the know, goes out to a staggering 44 countries; from Vietnam to Russia to Palestine, with Georgia and Libya being the most recent additions to the list. With 4.3 million dedicated weekly listeners, The Sunday Times has described it as “the most cutting-edge British music show out there.”
As well as radio, Sam performs at endless festivals worldwide including Bestival, Secret Garden Party, Latitude, Ibiza Rocks, Burning Man and Lake of Stars to name a mere handful. In 2014, she had the opportunity to DJ in Cuba becoming the first ever female DJ from overseas allowed to perform there. In 2012, Sam had the honour of performing a 90 minute set at the London Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony which was televised on C4. With a crowd of 80,000 people with millions watching at home, it was one of many career highlights for Ms Hall.
A practiced and fluent writer. Sam is a monthly columinist for DJ Mag, contributing writer for style & culture publication Phoenix, a regular blogger for Huffington Post & featured writer for Mixmag & Ministry of Sound. 2015 also saw Sam speak at TEDx with her talk ‘The Enduring Power of Radio to Change Lives’, an incredible honour.
An experienced and adaptable TV presenter, Sam is just as comfortable in a classic studio environment as she is as a roving reporter at festivals. With years of DJ experience, she has stage dived, rocked out and propelled herself off various stages around the globe having DJ’d her unique blend of eclectic house, world beats, mash up electro & bass heavy remixes to thousands across five continents. It’s no wonder that the Evening Standard says of her ‘…she could be the most influential woman in pop’.
