Danny and Kieran from Phoxjaw joined us at 2000Trees after their excellent set on the Neu Stage earlier that day. We talked about festivals, the Bristol music scene, their latest EP A Playground For Sad Adults and their plans for the rest of the year.
2000trees is one of our favourite festivals, ever. The 2019 edition had an absolutely stacked line-up and we at Bring The Noise UK spent all three days rushing around like crazy, trying to catch as much as possible. A arrival slightly later than planned, thanks to the ever wonderful traffic coming out of South Wales, meant that we were unable to catch the very start of the festival. However, we managed to cram a load of great bands in and still had an incredible day one!
It's almost that time again, as we prepare to pack our bags and make our way to Upcote Farm for one of our favourite festivals of the year, 2000trees. Year-on-year the line-up offers some of the best names in alternative music, so we've picked our must-see bands at this year's festival!
In life there's certain combinations that just go together: peanut butter and jam; the Kardashians and plastic surgery; yin and yang; and now, Phoxjaw and Pagan! The two bands have just finished a UK tour which went from strength to strength and we were there to see things kick off in Bristol.
Next week Pagan return to the UK for a run of shows in support of their debut album Black Wash, so we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to hear their top tips and stories from the road. Here's what they had to say!
