We are getting VERY excited for Hevy Festival – just a few more days to go!
All of our 8 Red Bull Bedroom Jam festival finalists will be playing the event over the weekend – including Brummie titans Strangle Kojak!
The lads had a great time when they played Download Festival last month, and have written a little blog about their experience for you all to read and enjoy!
“Download Festival was like a dream come true for us. Max and Sam have been going for quite a few years to the festival and to go from the public side to actually playing the show was awesome. We arrived there on Friday to a very muddy field but in high spirits as we had just come off our June UK tour and we were looking forward to the next 3 days ahead of us. When finally getting our tents set up, we went to the arena to catch a few of our favourite bands such as The Prodigy and Chase and Status. The Atmosphere inside Download this year was incredible.
Saturday we woke up to a drier day and caught up with some of our friends and other Red Bull Bedroom Jam bands backstage. After watching a few bands, we found ourselves hanging upside down from one the fairground rides with the RBBJ team. After that we went and caught Biffy Clyro and You Me At Six who were totally on top form and blew the crowd away. On Saturday night we found ourselves in a tent with lots of bands, including Kids In Glass Houses, Bring Me The Horizon, Killswitch Engage and Gallows. It was a great night of partying and chatting to a lot of the other bands and friends playing and working at Download.
Sunday… The day we play at DOWNLOAD! We got up nice and early to find the weather has brightened up and it was a nice sunny day! We headed straight up to the SK Mobile to warm up and make sure all our equipment was ready to go. We drove over to the RBBJ tent having a sing along and then found ourselves at the backstage to the tent and all ready to go. The feeling of walking onto the stage and seeing a crowd of people in the tent for us was just indescribable. It was Amazing! We played our hearts out and the response from the crowd felt incredible. It couldn’t have gone any better. After we had packed all of our stuff away and went out to the crowd, we went and caught the all mighty Black Sabbath who undoubtedly blew away the every single person in the crowd. Download Festival was an amazing experience for us and were so grateful to every single person that was involved, every single person at home who voted for us and all of the Red Bull Bedroom Jam team for helping us prove that we were right at home on the stage at Download Festival. THANK YOU ALL!”
