We Are Not A Rock Band DJ’s rock the (cha)V festival

We Are Not A Rock Band DJ - Matt Barker
OK – gently casting aside the fact that V festival is the festival for people who shouldn’t go to festivals – and also that the line-up is worse than a Top of The Pops show a few months prior to getting the axe (good job we were there) – here’s our little account of we ran tings.

When the We Are Not A Rock Band DJ’s (Matt Barker and The Veev) got a call asking if they could play at (cha)V, they had no idea what they were getting themselves into. Initially, they were booked to play on the Arena stage filling the slot between every band. This meant warming up for the likes of 2manydj’s, MGMT, Lady Gaga, Sneaky Soundsystem amongst many others (including Will Young!). Little did they know that the promoters had bigger plans. Yes, they were to play a 4 hour set on the Friday – meaning they were the ONLY act playing music at the festival on that day (it’s a Sat/Sun festival). The results were immense.

Check out the circle pits in the Rage video! We’re a very proud bunch here at WANARB. Well done chaps.

Here are some photo’s of the festival:
