ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL – Sun 14th
Hard Rock Stage 4:30pm
Yup, we’re playing on the Hard Rock 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.
How did this happen? It’s thanks to a few people, starting with…
We were playing on a London street corner in a residential area, warming up for a gig having been thrown out of the park. A certain radio presenter stopped to listen, on her way back from school with her daughters. She invited us on her show, and liked us enough to invite us back a second time. Then 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 on 1st September 2014. She did, we did, and it was ace. During sound check we met…
The man behind IoW was standing in the wings whilst we were sound-checking. He liked our sound and invited us to play at Official Isle of Wight Festival 2015.
Wish us luck…
