Indie rock legends Foals return to Splendour in all their glory. The Oxford five-piece followed up their 2008 debut Antidotes with the Mercury-shortlisted Total Life Foreverin 2010.

That same year they captured our hearts with a stellar performance at Splendour in the Grass and a sold-out run of sideshows. Last year they released their biggest album yet – Holy Fire – which debuted at Number 1 on the ARIA charts and Number 2 in the UK.

Relentless touring saw Foals play 155 shows across the world in 2013, travelling 217,438 km, appearing high up the bill at festivals around the world and playing their first-ever UK festival headline slot (Latitude), it’s no surprise then that British media coined Foals as one of the hardest-working acts of the year.

Foals will fly in for 48 hours and give Splendour one of their internationally renowned ‘extreme level’ live performances. Give it up for the UK’s best live band.
