‘The Red Bull Weekender was as an absolute jam,’ said Dominique Soma of the record store and event space (and so much more) WeHeartBeat. ‘Music is a source of inspiration and helps me stay up in a world that sometimes doesn’t always make sense. It’s kept me positive during the darkest of times and has allowed me the process of connecting with myself and the world around me. Music is life, music is love and the heartbeat of my soul.’
