Wow what a summer it has been, over 30 festivals in 9 countries, from blazing sunshine to pouring rain this has been a very special year for the ESC. We have been working nonstop and now have a couple of weeks to catch up on sleep, have a much needed shower and get ready for our winter tour, and recording our new EP….
We kicked things off with Mini-majig (the replacement event we put on for Swingamajig) May 6th and didn’t stop until the end of September with our final gig in San Sadurni d’Anoia just outside Barcelona. Our festival tours are always pretty full on, we can play up to 4 festivals in a weekend (imagine having to pitch your tent 4 times in one weekend!) and often have to leave super early in the morning without sleep to catch flights. We don’t often get the chance to relax and soak in the atmosphere but at Boomtown this year after our Friday show on the Main Stage we took the rest of the weekend off to soak up the atmosphere which was so much fun!
A special mention has to go to Shambala Festival, there we run our very own Stage called the Swingamajig Speakeasy. Open from 7pm – 5am you will find us with our friends, performing on the stage, working behind scenes and running our speakeasy cocktail bar all weekend. If you haven’t been yet make sure you check it out.
We have some very exciting news coming soon, with a tour on the other side of the world in 2019, but until then make sure you check out our tour dates and hopefully see you soon!
