Clash and Festival Republic, live at The Great Escape, Brighton, featuring Citizens!, Doldrums, Friends, Pond, Slow Club, Thomas White and We Have Band.

"After a barnstorming Thursday night at The Great Escape, any little kitten could be forgiven for a sore head and a grizzly disposition on the Friday morning, yet with a line-up of the likes that Republic of Music and Clash put on there was to be no moping; this was a one stop shop to catch the choicest bobby dazzlers of the whole festival. Set in the Shipwright’s Yard just off the seafront the vibe was old school block party: the beer was warm, the music was loud, and everyone was getting their rocks off."
