Our highlights from Day 2 at Leeds Festival 2021 feature Sports Team, Sam Fender and plenty more besides.
You’ll have to look very hard to find a more joyous, carefree album whose release managed to come with such an air of melancholy.
Last year, Deep Down Happy was hosting a party that no-one could be invited to; we the listeners instead having to delight in the crowd-pleasing anthems it’s packed with whilst stuck alone in the isolation of a global pandemic, hidden from the boarded up doors of music venues across the world.
Sports Team were already one of the best live bands around by the time their debut LP was released in June 2020, and now their fans are finally able to experience the record where it truly belongs. With plenty more gigs on the horizon, the group are certainly making up for lost time.
