Festival No. 6 2016 Preview: Bastille
Headlining the Friday night of this year’s Festival No.6 are Brit-winning indie/electro rockers Bastille. The Version bumped into Dan at the festival last year, where he told us he'd love to perform at what was now his favourite festival in the world.
With a new album in the pipeline for 2016 the number one charting four-piece will be crafting an upbeat set blending new material with hits including the platinum smash ‘Pompeii’ and ‘Of the Night’.
The word Bastille brings to mind revolution, change and the storming of the old by the spirit of the new. When London-based singer/songwriter Dan Smith called his band Bastille, he was merely thinking of his birthday, July 14, France’s Bastille Day. He had no idea how quickly the band would storm the charts and the British music scene.
Right now, expectation is high for Bastille’s second album, which is due later this year, and, of course, their headline set at Festival No.6 on the Friday night.
