More fresh music to make up the Citadel line-up has been announced, rounding off their list of acts beautifully. The festival, which made it’s debut only last year, provides the perfect setting to revel in bands previously enjoyed and fall in love with new sounds.
Added to the already superb line-up are DJ sets from Friendly Fires, Andy Smith and The Mighty Zaf. As well as these delights, Battles, Beardyman and Flyte will be joining the festivities set in Hackney’s Victoria Park on a hopefully sunny Sunday afternoon.
Flyte are a four piece band who have supported Bombay Bicycle Club and Lucy Rose on the road, earning their stripes as fixtures on the indie scene. Having been surprised at their lack of festival announcements, the opportunity to see these four boys again was met with much excitement. Their upbeat pop sound features stringy guitar and retro keys, paired with melancholy vocals and boy band harmonies – the effect of all of this makes for some perfect summery tunes.
Not to be outdone by the music, the vast array of other things to do has been further embellished: Sunday Papers live promises a side serving of intellect with your summer afternoon, as well as food from Voodoo Ray’s, Patty & Bun, Buddha Bowls and The Cheese Truck. Jose Cuervo tequila slushies, ales from Sharp’s Brewery and Smirnoff Bloody Mary’s will fuel the whole day’s revelry. This is alongside Sunday Feasting with Stephen Harris from the best gastropub in the country serving up a banquet of maple cured pork, chorizo sauce and pot roast red cabbage with apple and mustard twice in the afternoon.
Citadel festival takes place on Sunday 17th July and tickets are available to buy here.
