The acclaimed Waterford electro outfit walked offstage at Body & Soul at 2am and played a Glastonbury set just 13 hours later…
We played Body & Soul on Saturday night and Glastonbury on Sunday afternoon so the last 48 hours were just hectic. Exhilaratingly so! The Body & Soul gig was fantastic. We played the Midnight Circus and it was completely rammed. They closed off the tent because there were so many people in it and then they had to get extra security to stop people from climbing in under the tent and trying to get over the barriers. So that was a result. It was brilliant!
We played on that same Body & Soul stage two years ago. We played it kind of early on a Friday so it was really great to be headlining on a Saturday now. It was kind of a big deal for us. We went on at one o’clock in the morning and did an hour-long set. We walked offstage at 2am, packed up the gear, got into the car and then went straight to the airport to get on a flight to Bristol.
Our heads were pretty scrambled. A few of us went up on Friday for Body & Soul and we said we’d have a quiet night, but of course we did the dog on it. Got into the festival mood on Friday night and then didn’t get any sleep on Saturday… and then got on a flight got to Bristol. You can imagine.
