Getting hyped for the first ever Marshall Live Festival? Sure you are! Check out what the festival headliners have to say though:
HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE PLAYING THE INAUGURAL MARSHALL LIVE?
Dan Dorney (The Hunna): “We can’t quite bloody believe that we are topping it, to be honest. I’ve been using Marshall since day one. It’s the only amp [brand] I’ve ever used and we’re really tight with the team there as well. We’ve never actually played a show in Milton Keynes either, so it’ll be really cool as a first.”
Luke Caley (Press To Meco): “It’s really cool. The fact it’s the first time they have actually branded their own festival should generate a lot of interest. I think the line-up speaks for itself, too.”
Theresa Jarvis (Yonaka): “We’ll be releasing our new album the day before so it’ll be the perfect place for us to be able to share it with all different sorts of music fans. People are still saying that guitar music is dead, but I think it’s such a lie, especially now when there are so many amazing voices out there. People are ready for something new.”
WHAT IS IT LIKE WORKING WITH MARSHALL SO CLOSELY ON THIS?
Dan: “The thing is, we started from the bottom and worked our way up. Then to have brands like Marshall supporting you while also letting you headline their festival, it’s very much a pinch yourself thing.”
Theresa: “It’s nice to be recognised in this way. When people who are actually from the music industry show their support it’s really cool.”
Luke: “Even though we’re already signed to their label, there is still the little 12-year-old guitarist freaking out. A big part of why we signed in the first place is because we wanted to be associated with a brand this well trusted and respected. For a lot of bands I’m sure it’s just as cool to be associated with Marshall!”
