The Lightning Seeds are to close the main stage at this year’s Headstock Festival, following Saturday night headliners Echo & The Bunnymen at the non-profit, volunteer and musician led event which takes place at the Newstead and Annesley Country Park, near Nottingham, between September 9-11th.
Just announced for the festival, The Herbaliser Band - one of the UK’s most sought after festival acts – will be giving a rare full band performance, joining The Lightning Seeds on the Main Stage on Sunday 11th. The Lightning Seeds and The Herbaliser Band join a line up of over 100 acts, spread across five stages and dance arenas.
Not long after their co-headlining performance at the recent Friends Of Mine Festival, Live4ever caught up with Lightning Seeds frontman Ian Broudie to discuss the shift away from being just a ‘studio band’, the constantly evolving band line-up, and of course, that football anthem.
May 20th-22nd saw the first Friends Of Mine Festival take place at the idyllic Capesthorne Hall, Cheshire, showcasing a great line up of established acts such as Bad Lieutenant, the Buzzcocks and The Cribs alongside newly signed bands including Factory Floor and Where’s Strutter?.
The typical British weather, which even included a stage blowing down, couldn’t dampen spirits as three days of great music was ended on the Sunday’s main stage by curator Tim Burgess‘ performance with The Charlatans.
Live4ever was in attendance and was lucky enough to catch a few of the artists who helped to make this brand new event an undoubted success over the course of the weekend…
Popular Britpop band The Lightning Seeds have announced details of a UK tour to take place in April. The Liverpool band released the album ‘Four Winds‘ last May, their first in over ten years.
