As dawn came up last Saturday, Shani Louk and her friends were still dancing.
The music playing in one of the festival’s tents, with its psychedelic canopy, was “Cupid’s Chokehold” by Gym Class Heroes, a New York rap rock band.
At the age of 30, Shani may be too young to have known that the track is essentially a cover of Supertramp’s “Breakfast in America”, the classic pop song from 1979 about a young man seeking freedom on the other side of the Atlantic.
