King Eider at Isle of Wight Festival 2015

Yup, we’re playing on the Garden Stage, one of the three main stages at this 58,000-capacity festival. John Giddings himself has been in touch to confirm we’ll be playing on the weekend, and we can’t wait. Join our Facebook event.

How did this happen? It’s thanks to a few people, starting with Gaby Roslin. We were thrown out of in a park in London and a certain radio presenter stopped to listen, with her daughters. She invited us on her show, and liked us enough to invite us back a second time. Live on air, she persuaded her friend Monkey (Caroline Monk) to let us play at Koko, at the Isle of Wight Reunion Gig she was to host. She did, we did, and it was ace. During sound check, the man behind IoW said yes. And we’ve just had email confirmation too. So 13th or 14th June it is…
