Festival season makes up a big part of our summer every year, and now that it’s only a couple of months away (or a few weeks even!) we’re getting more and more pumped. There’s plenty of great festivals to chose from, and each year it seems that everyone is working hard to top any previous lineups. One of the festivals we’re excited for this summer is Downlod, and we’ve got a number of bands we’re particularly stoked for. You’ll probably notice that our list doesn’t contain any headliners- those are a given good show – but it’s because we’re stoked to see how some of the other smaller bands cater to the larger audience.
Somehow in a short number of years Boston Manor have managed to completely blow up in the scene. The pop punkers came together in 2013 and it’s only taken them five years to make it to the main stage on Download. It was with the release of their 2016 debut album Be Nothing that they truly secured that rise. With an impressive list of tours behind them now, we’re excited to see how that has helped improve their live performance and what they’re bringing to the table.
