7-9pm The Destroyers - Megafolk
The Destroyers' live show inspires awe with music of explosive vitality; virtuosic but wildly chaotic, effortlessly eclectic, often dark, sometimes outright silly. Much like a massive gong. Complete with original songs and instruments plus inventive arrangements of traditional songs and dance tunes, the Destroyers wil take you from the banks of Spey, to the theatres of Saratov via the streets of Sofia with a tongue in the cheek of Broadway.
