Don Broco’s Rob Damiani and We Are The In Crowd’s Taylor Jardine are excited about their appearances at the events, with both having fond memories of previous performances.
As Damiani explains, “going as punters 2 years ago we had an amazing time, and it was incredible to see a festival in its first year running so smooth! Last year we played the festival for the first time and it was easily one of our favourite sets of the year. Myself and Matt used to live in Nottingham, so Rock City is a very special place to us, and we’ve had some amazing shows in Bristol, so we’re absolutely buzzing!”
Jardine adds, “we are so stoked to be invited back to Hit The Deck Festival! Last year it was my favourite show of the year! I swear, I’m not just saying that. I remember the crowd just going off and how much energy there was to feed off of. Here’s hoping for the best show of 2013!”
