Giveaway: Heineken Green Synergy

The third Heineken Green Synergy music festival is taking place this week from the 12th -16th November around the Camden Street area in Tripod, Village, Whelans, Anseo, Solas and Shine.

Described by NME as ‘Forward-thinking young guitar-slingers…turbo-charged, noisy and downright promising’, indie rock trio Johnny Foreigner hit Whelans on Wednesday November 12th with tracks from their debut album Waited Up ‘Til It Was Light. Kerrang!, which gave 4/5 to the album, described it as “‘¦a breathless, deathless rush of possibilities, Ritilan rock exploding with ideas and imagination.” State was similarly impressed and we feature them in this very issue.

Support comes from Thomas Tantrum, a Southampton quartet whose infectious pop is already being championed by Glasvegas and Lily Allen.
