Feeder confirmed for Norfolk Play Fest
Good news Feeder fans, the Indie rock band will be playing in Norfolk this summer, after being confirmed as a headline act for upcoming music festival, Play Fest.
Yes, fellow UK indie fans can have a night off from playing on Party Poker and abusing the replay button on their favourite albums, because you’re going to see them in the flesh. The organisers announced Feeder’s involvement in the festival the Sunday just gone. They will play on the 3rd June in the grounds of New Eccles Hall School, near Attenborough.
Play Fest had its first ever year last summer, and attracted an audience that reached 2,000. The band are to slot in next to Ash (who play on the 2nd) on the bill of the main stage, and will be the final act of the Sunday, ending Play Fest 2012 with a bang. They are to be supported by Delilah, the Chase and Status vocal muse.
Feeder first garnered the attention of the nation when they released their album Echo Park in 2001. It was all thanks to the popularity of the top 5 single Buck Rogers that they gained such a good reputation. Now, while the music in the charts may have changed, the band are still going strong, having played gigs at Reading, Download, Glastonbury and Leeds.
Play Fest is to run from Friday June 1st until Sunday 3rd. The event, which was short listed at the UK Festival Awards 2011 in the Best New Festival category, is all set to draw an even bigger audience this year.
Still not convinced? You can also catch The Correspondents, Roots Manuva and Sonic Boom Six on the Big Top stage too.
