Slaves have gone from plucky, pub circuit favourites to one of the most intense and hotly in demand bands in the country. The duo’s raw brand of punk rock has seen them earn two top ten albums, and consistently sell out venues including London's Brixton Academy, O2 Forum and two dates at Shepherds Bush Empire within 12 months. The pair’s achievements were recognised with awards from Kerrang! and NME as well as a nomination for the prestigious Mercury Awards for their debut album, ‘Are You Satisfied?’
Fresh from the release of their Mike D produced second album, ‘Take Control’, and after acclaimed performances at last year’s Reading & Leeds festivals, Isaac Holman (drums, vocals) and Laurie Vincent (guitar, vocals) are bringing their razor-edged anthems to 2017’s festival season, raging against apathy, mediocrity and the cultural neutering afoot amongst their own generation.
To think that year 2001 was 15 years ago... In 2001 the festival made its return to the town of Żary in Western Poland. We felt very at home there!
Are you suffering from Woodstock withdrawal? You are not alone - the promoter of the festival has a few updates about the life after the festival.
