What? Blur / Foals / Crystal Castles / Friendly Fires

This second date has been added to the initial Friday one and it’s a truly amazing line-up to warrant your £45. Blur need no introduction. Here’s a brief synopsis of the others:

Foals: math rock i.e. indie disco meets prog rock i.e. loud, fast, danceable rhythms with amazing instrumentation and shouty vocals. Way better than it sounds! They made my favourite album of last year – Antidotes.

Crystal Castles: Cool as fuck Canadian experimental electro duo of Alice Glass and multi instrumentalist Ethan Kath.

Friendly Fires: English disco rock heroes who ahve caused a real stir since releasing their debut album last year. Think an English version of The Rapture and you’d be near enough.

For Fans Of: Blur, The Rapture, Bloc Party, Daft Punk, Aphex Twin, Holy Fuck, Battles.

Where? Hyde Park, London.
