Orchard Stage – Friday

Bandstand – Friday (DJ set)

Holy Youth Movement are a five-piece band from Bristol, consisting of drums, bass, guitar, keyboards and vocals. Their sound is a heavy mix of rock n roll and electronica fuelled by dance floor rhythms, driving bass and a huge wall of synthesizers and guitar, all topped off with soaring anthemic vocals and melodies. Their love of rock n roll and bands like Primal Scream and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club as well as being huge fans of Dance Music and artists like The Chemical Brothers and Underworld lead them to experiment with the task of combining those 2 genres. After writing songs and developing their new sound they approached legendary Producer Jagz Kooner to take care of production duties on all their songs. Jagz was instantly hooked after hearing the album demos and totally blown away when he saw the band in rehearsals. He commented that they were one of the best live bands he’d ever seen and said the music was the perfect amalgamation of what he best described as ‘electronic rock n roll’. Radio X’s John Kennedy made their single ‘Better Together’ an Exposure Hot One. The huge potential of syncs for their music was highlighted when Scotts Menswear used their debut single ‘You Thought I Was Dead (But Baby I’m Just getting Started)’ on a viral social media campaign for their clothing range. Having previously Supported Primal Scream (on their Maximum Rock n Roll tour) as well as The Dandy Warhols and a string of festival performances including Glastonbury, Holy Youth Movement shows are a jaw dropping live experience not to be missed!
