London Grammar recall being mobbed at Longitude

Indie trio reminisce on their first taste of stardom at the Irish festival last summer in the new issue of Hot Press.

They might be one of the most talked about bands of the moment, but the band were still relatively unheard of as recently as last summer.

Speaking in this month’s Hot Press, keyboard-player Dot Major said that it was at the Marley Park festival this past July that the group first noticed their burgeoning popularity after himself and lead singer Hannah Reid were mobbed at a chip van.

“That was really weird because it was so early on. It felt as if we’d arrived in Ireland even before we had in the UK. Me and Hannah went to get a burger after our performance and had all these people coming up looking for autographs and photographs.”
