“We’re so excited,” says DRENGE frontman Eoin Loveless ahead of their highly-anticipated return to summer festivals. After a three-year hiatus, the band will headline North Yorkshire‘s DEER SHED FESTIVAL – a date Eoin promises “something really special” will be prepared for.
With latest single, THIS DANCE, bulging with a festival-esque vibe Drenge are continuously teasing new material. Eoin explains the science behind This Dance, saying: “There’s nothing like going to a party and ending up on the dance floor, belting out 80s chart tunes. Your arms and legs colliding with friends, and with complete strangers. It’s all about the freedom.”
2018 will see Deer Shed Festival transform into a more spacious affair after a life-long dream from organiser Oliver Jones. He reveals: “We always had a perfect image in our head of a tree-lined main stage that befitted the beauty of Baldersby Park.
“Things always got in the way, but we’re delighted that our nine-year-long vision for the site will now finally come to fruition. Though audience capacity will remain the same, we’ll have more space and, as is the case each year, we’ve invested more in the music, arts and science programme than ever before.”
The ever-expanding music line-up this year features both iconic artists such as Goldfrapp, but also champions upcoming bands in the form of Blaenavon, Matt Maltese and Dream Wife. Previously, the festival have been home to the likes of Declan McKenna, Hinds and The Big Moon.
Alongside an eclectic music programme, this year’s comedy tent will host James Acaster, Justin Moorhouse and many others. The quaint, picturesque surroundings of Topcliffe are like no-other – and unlike many festivals, the hectic scramble between sets is almost nonexistent at Deer Shed.
This line-up, in addition to the ambient atmosphere, will certainly be one to look back on in the future.
