A lot of us love going to festivals and seeing some of our favourite artists, and that is exactly what I am doing this year. The last few days of our summer I will be getting muddy with my friends, dancing next to people I’ve just met and have a stranger’s beer thrown over my head at Reading Festival.
I am going to tell you 6 acts that I have to see, no questions asked.
Lets start with the Brighton duo Royal Blood. These two have been one of my favourite bands for the best part of a year now. Seeing them last year has inspired me to listen to them a bunch more. These two are single handedly bringing back Hard Rock and it is amazing to see what they have done in the past year.
The song to care about: Careless
I have been listening to Limp Bizkit for a good 6 years (a third of my life) and I don’t think I will ever get sick of hearing Keep rollin’ rollin’ rollin’. Although many people are opting for the headliners Mumford & Sons, I can’t bring myself to miss out on seeing one of my favourite bands.
The song to roll to: Rollin’
A few of you will know how much I love Wolf Alice due to a review I put out about them. It’s their psychedelic vocals with the grungy bass and drums and the perfect mix of Brit-Pop in to the lyrics and guitar.
The song to wash your hands to: You’re A Germ
Little confession, I’m loving my female rock right now, and Marmozets have been at the top of that list for a while, seeing them last year before Royal Blood and Lower than Atlantis. I only heard one song and she screamed in a little of it and I was instantly hooked. Such a good atmosphere when they play live.
The song to dance to: Move, Shake, Hide
As it is
I haven’t been listening to As It Is for very long but I love them. Fronted by YouTuber Patty Walters. I found Patty through looking for a Pop-Punk cover of Wrecking Ball. I was really into finding Rock/Punk/Metal covers of popular songs, for example the Pop goes Punk albums. All the aside, I love Patty and I can’t wait to see him and his band.
The song to call your friends to: Dial Tones
This band is in my top 5 favourite bands. Recently bringing out a banger of an album possibly the best album this year, Glitterbug. Headlinig the Festival Republic stage this year, it’s sure to be so amazing. I will be singing every single word back to them, alone, because all my friends will be watching Metallica. I am looking forward to this so much I can hardly put this in words.
The song to defend yourself with: Your Body Is A Weapon
