Reading Festival, August 2017, was the first time I ever encountered The Amazons. Dragged along to a packed-out Festival Republic tent with zero expectations, a young fresh-faced band from Reading walked onto the stage. I had no idea how many times after that I would see them again or how they would go on to influence me artistically.
After two years away, Truck Festival the acclaimed event for indie kids of all ages was back and ready to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
Prior to their set on the main stage of Truck Festival, Why Generation got to sit down with indie-rock band Spector to talk about 10 years of their debut album and how it felt to record their latest album ‘Now or Whenever’ in lockdown.
Since its advent in 2017, Community Festival has been a hugely successful addition to Festival Republic’s plethora of seasonal events.
The 2022 edition of 2000 Trees was an absolute scorcher – and not just in terms of the weather. After a few years off (because of you-know-what), the festival was back and better than ever, playing host to the best in up-and-coming rock bands and household names alike.
Festival first-timer Mort has taken Why Generation to its first 2000 Trees Festival, the independent, alt-rock festival down in Cheltenham.
