Road To Download: Steadlur
It’s getting closer and closer! Download is next weekend and we caught up to sleazy-rocking n00bs Steadlur to talk about their Donington debut!
We caught a quick chinwag with Donington debutant Philip Anthony from Steadlur about what to expect from the band at this year’s Download festival.
How much are you looking forward to playing this year’s Download?
Philip Steadlur: “It’s the same feeling as being a kid on Christmas Eve. We are just going crazy! We’re super stoked and are losing sleep!”
What’s your biggest ambition for this year’s Download set?
Phillip: “We’re gonna get the party started over on our stage, connect with crowd and maybe sell some merch! We open up the festival on the Friday, so hopefully we’ll be setting the tone for everyone’s weekend.”
Do you have any surprises or plans?
Phillip: “If I told you, it would not be a surprise any more…YOU have to come watch the set!”
What’s the pro’s and con’s to playing a festival set?
Phillip: “Hmmmm. Well, we’ve not done anything as big as Download before, but to me, the pro’s are being able to play a show to loads and loads of people, the crowd participation, a huge stage and being cranked up super loud! The con’s I guess, might be having a bad sound guy or the crowd turning on you. That would suck.”
Describe why people should come and see your set in 5 words.
Phillip: “We will get you hammered!”
