It’s always a treat to see local acts from Llandudno do well on the music scene and so it will come as great news that Catfish and the Bottlemen will be taking to the stage at Wakestock 2014.
The four piece all went to the same school together in the seaside town and have been carving a huge name for themselves ever since they formed thanks to tireless gigging and knowing how to write a catchy hook or two.
Catfish and the Bottlemen have been getting their name out wherever they can as they played at an amazing 100 shows in 2013 alone. Things started to take off for the band when Carl Barat (formerly of The Libertines) invited them to his show and have also had a leg up from The Vaccines in the past.
It really has been an amazing couple of years for the Llandudno lads as they’ve been on a sold out tour where they showcased their newest songs which have been garnering huge buzz. ‘Kathleen’ already looks like being a smash for the Catfish so don’t forget that you heard about it here first.
Their already impressive touring portfolio and back catalogue was only bolstered further after receiving a premium slot for the music on BBC Radio 1 as well as winning various Singles of the Week awards on shows such as XFM, BBC Radio 6 and more.
So it has to be said that their slot at the upcoming Wakestock has to be deserved as they can more than hold their own against the likes of John Newman, Frank Turner and Tom Odell as the festival which takes place over the 11th, 12th and 13th of July. Other festival appearances for the boys this year include: Deer Shed Festival 5, Kendal Calling, Barn on the Farm, Live at Leeds and more.
Their slot has yet to be announced at Wakestock so be sure to check back on the site for any updates.
