Canterbury four-piece Syd Arthur may have rocked Coachella 2014, but what else do they have in store?
After wrapping up a successful tour of Europe, this Kent quartet jetted off to the sun-soaked hills of Indio, California for its annual two-weekend, multi-genre event which took place last weekend (April 11th-13th 2014). Coachella may be one of the biggest music festivals in the world, but Syd Arthur are no strangers to the bustling music scene of the States following their recent showcases at SXSW. 'We play a lot of festivals, it's a lot of fun', vocalist Liam revealed in a video interview. 'They kind of range from the smaller festivals in Europe and the UK to bigger festivals.' Indeed, among their 'smaller' festivals back home, they'll be hitting Leeds for the multi-venue event that is Live At Leeds and will be playing their set at the Leeds Uni 'Stylus' on May 3rd, as well as getting involved with Brighton's highly respected Great Escape Festival on May 9th.

In a nutshell, it is basically a big playground for grown-ups - though of course it is a family friendly event - featuring activities such as the 3 Legged Race, the Beauty Bar, the art studios, dodgeball and the almighty Pie Eating Contest, all while you're munching on a variety of cuisine from around the state and rocking out to some of the best bands you will ever hear.
