All Points East Presents Catfish And The Bottlemen review

June 5, 2018 |

Sea Girls put on an electrifying set at the Firestone stage. It would have been nice to see what they could have done on a larger stage but they enticed a massive area to the small stage. New single Too Much Fun was brilliant, the band playing with intoxicating enthusiasm getting the whole crowd going with their indie pop riffs and enticing vocals. Sea Girls also debuted a new song off their upcoming EP out next Tuesday.

Frank Carter And The Rattlesnakes were chaotic, ruthless and completely insane. Their set started with Carter doing a headstand on the crowd. They later started the largest circle pit of the day all whilst Face Timing his mum on stage. The band played a nice balance of new and older songs of their EP Blossoms and debut album Modern Ruin. The set concluded with their angsty anthem I Hate You.

The Hunna put on a great set at All Points East, playing to the largest crowd at their stage all day. Opening with Dare taken from their upcoming album out 13th July, The Hunna‘s presence was unstoppable. Amongst the work from their upcoming album Dare, most of the set was made up of their brilliant debut album 100. She’s Casual and You And Me being crowd favourites, closing their set with Bonfire.

All points east concluded with the legendary Catfish and the Bottlemen putting on a shimmering and uplifting set. Opening with Homesick before going into Kathleen, everything about their set was epic, not just the music but the production as well with an insane light show. Catfish and the Bottlemen was the band everyone had been waiting to see and they definitely did not disappoint. The day was concluded with Cocoon and echoing track Tyrants, an appropriate ending to a phenomenal day of live music.
