The Foals at Splendour

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.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
