Sunday Slaylist: Hevy Festival 2014

July 20th, 2014

Hevy Festival 2014 Sunday Slaylist Thrash Hits

There’s just over a month to go until Hevy Festival 2014 marks the festival’s return to Port Lympne Wild Animal Park down in Kent. After – let’s be honest, a fairly disasterous turn of events in 2013 that saw the festival cancelling and taking a year off – the festival is back, with a new focus and energy behind it. It might not have the size or chequebook to match Download or Sonisphere, but the return of Hevy to the UK festival calendar is definitely something we can get behind – which is why this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist is all about their 2014 line-up.

Mastodon at Leeds Festival 2012 by Gobinder Jhitta Thrash Hits

In addition to those sweet as you like on-stage photos of Cancer Bats’ Main Stage triumph we showed you last weekend, our man Gobinder Jhitta took a shedload of photos at this year’s Leeds Festival. We basically gave him free rein to go shoot whatever and whoever he wanted, and he didn’t let us down – pretty much every band we ranted and/or raved about in our post-Reading & Leeds Festival podcast is featured in his gallery, which you can check out after the jump.

In many ways, Anti-Flag are a byword for the sort of one-dimensional politiking which finds its spiritual home on the Warped Tour and whose central tenets appear to be Don’t Bomb Iraq For Oil / Vans Authentics For Everyone. Oft dismissed by those who prefer the more “serious” political stances of the punk underground on the one hand, and the more erudite protestations of NOFX (who have consistently proved themselves to be the best at skate-punk-with-views) on the other, Anti-Flag show no signs of changing their tune on The General Strike – their ninth studio album.

Alexisonfire finally returned to Brighton on a near un-scheduled stop on the Eastpak Tour. The show sold out in just four days, and it shows, with wall to wall die-hard fans strutting their stuff to a setlist consisting mainly of Old Crows/Young Cardinals tracks with a few classics thrown in for good measure.
