The most raucous ovation of the festival went to Nihilism. Fronted by the violin-wielding whirlwind that is Saskia Horton, this feel-good five-piece hopped, skipped and jumped between jazz, hiphop and soul with such infectious energy that at the end of the set, the collective howls for a final encore could only be heeded by the powers that be.
