Swedish voodoo-freaks Goat gave the West Holts Stage a mash up of Afrobeat, Latin disco, post punk, rampant acid rock a to create a riot of rhythm and psychedelic noise.
They took the stage in mysterious masks to make sure that the crowd connect with the music, and not who’s playing it. A stunning performance!
Singing in English French, Creole, Japanese and made-up languages, Zun Zun Egui have kept West Holts dancing with their exhilarating free-range rock music!
Continuing our tradition of opening the festival with a large band, may we introduce Classica Orchestra Afrobeat. The most joyous way to kick off the festival!
Only 24 hours to go before the West Holts Stage sparks into life. Who is getting excited!?
In 44 hours, Classica Orchestra Afrobeat will be the first act up on the West Holts Stage! If the time isn’t passing quickly enough, why not play 6 degrees of Nile Rodgers (see earlier post!)
The famous West Holts Cow was seen today chatting away to new arrivals. As usual it was milking the attention.
