Top 10 Most Buzzing Moments of Community ’1930 Jul 2019
We can’t believe it’s been a whole month since we were watching The Kooks, Don Broco, Kate Nash and so many more great bands at Community ’19.
To relive that epic day in Finny P we’re counting down the Top 10 Most Buzzing Moments of Community ’19.
1. Losing it for SWMRS
SWMRS had us ready to lose, lose, lose our minds when they opened the Main Stage at Community. Kicking off with ‘Trashbag Baby’, Cole, Max, Joel and Seb had us all singing along for their entire show, especially when they dropped an ‘Old Town Road’ cover in out of nowhere. These boys totally got the party started at Finny P.
2. Hearing brand new material from The Hunna
As well as getting to hear all the hits like ‘Babe Can I Call’ and ‘She’s Casual’, The Hunna treated us to a couple of brand new songs from their hugely anticipated upcoming new album. We can’t wait to hear ‘I Get High To Forget’ and ‘Don’t Give A F**K’ again.
3. Screaming all the words to Bloxx’s ‘Headspace’
All of Bloxx‘s songs are bangers, but the one we were most looking forward to hearing was ‘Headspace’. So, when the London quartet closed their set with it, nothing could stop us singing along with Fee to that killer chorus. All together now: “you’re f**king with my head space!”
4. Getting up close with Kate Nash
Kate Nash‘s entire set was amazing, BUT by far the best part had to be when she came into the crowd to sing the classic ‘Foundations’ with us all. Wearing more sequins than RuPaul, she jumped down to the barrier while we all screamed ‘you said I must eat so many lemons…’ back at her. Iconic.
5. Singing our hearts out for Gerry Cinnamon
It was time to get our Scottish flags out when Gerry Cinnamon took the stage to huge cheers. Pulling out hit after hit – ‘Sometimes’, ‘Lullaby’, ‘Belter’ – Gerry gave us what we wanted as Finny P turned into one huge singalong. What an absolute legend.
6. Bouncing our bucket hats off for Don Broco
If there’s ever a band guaranteed to get you moving, it’s those Bedford lads Don Broco. We bopped to ‘Pretty’, moshed to ‘Everybody’, banged our heads to ‘Half Man Half God’ and swung our shirts round our heads during ‘T-Shirt Song’. Who needs the gym, when you’ve got Don Broco.
7. Vistas bringing the party
If you weren’t completely tired out after all that, Vistas were ready to keep you dancing with their indie anthems. From ‘Hold Me’ and ‘Sign Language’ to ‘Retrospect’, they had us grooving through their entire set. New favourite band? We think so.
8. The Amazons closing the N4 Stage in style
Before the N4 Stage closed and we all headed on over to watch the evening’s headliners The Kooks, it was time to rock out with The Amazons. And rock out we did – with those blistering guitar tones, pounding drum solos and big singalong choruses. In fact, we’ve still got ‘Black Magic’ in our heads now.
9. Arms in the air at golden hour during ‘Charlemagne’
Is there any better summer anthem than ‘Charlemagne’ by Blossoms? We don’t think so, which is why our arms were in the air for the full 2 minutes and 46 seconds as the sun started going down and the glorious golden hour set in. A totally unforgettable moment.
10. That EXPLOSIVE Kooks headline set
Pyro, confetti, and classic indie bangers – The Kooks‘ set had it all. After waiting for months to be able to sing along to ‘Junk Of The Heart‘, ‘Ooh La’, and ‘She Moves In Her Own Way’, the headliners didn’t disappoint as front man Luke and co treated us to all the hits. Oh, and not to mention those Gram-worthy pics we got during the confetti burst for ‘Naive’. Beaut.
