Billed as a ‘B(eds) & B(ands) Weekender’, Where The Wild Things Are offers music as interesting as the site is beautiful. The verdant greenery of Eemhof’s Centre Parks, forward-thinking indie and alternative music, plus your own bed to retire to: this is how festivals should be.
6-8 March – Bungalow Park de Eemhof, Zeewolde
Texts by Derek Robertson
There’s an ol’ fashioned vibe to POND’s stoner, psychedelic pop-rock, but what it lacks in originality it more thn makes up for with fun, wit and footstomping goodness.
Death From Above 1979
Back from a seemingly terminal hiatus, the duo is here to blow you away once again, an unstoppable rock’n’roll juggernaut with fuzzed-out riffs, pounding drums and the burning sense they’re making up for lost time.
The Black Tambourines
Beach-punk revellers The Black Tambourines seduce with loud, messy songs delivered with the kind of nervous vitality that only youth can muster.
The music of Noah Lennox continues to delight and confound in equal measure, with new LP Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper his most ambitious, assured record to date.
For a band formed a little over a year ago, Ex Hex are amazingly surefooted, their debut LP a fast and furious collection of garage-rock songs tinged with a keen pop sensibility.
Mining the soft sheen of early 1980’s UK soul, Jungle have polished and updated the sound for a new generation.
