When it comes to all-day festivals in the UK, there are an absolute multitude of them, and most of them do it very, very well. Some personal favorites of mine include Takedown and Hit The Deck, but I must admit that Slam Dunk Festival has been the highlight of my British musical calendar for many years. It’s now a staple feature for any rock fan, and thousands of us flock to either North (Leeds), South (Hatfield) or Midlands (Wolverhampton) for our fix. Or two of them. Or all three!
Pa-ramore. Pa-ris (yes, that’s how you say PVRIS, although without the dash in the middle… keep up). Other than sharing identical prefixes, these two bands are nothing alike – unless you count the fact that their singers both identify as females. In 2015, it shouldn’t be a shock, or valid reason for us to make such brilliant observations as “oh cool, it’s a female fronted band!”. However, sadly, due to a lack of equality and women in the industry, it too often is.
