In the build-up to Knockanstockan 2016 TLMT has asked acts from this year’s line-up to choose their own festival mixed-tape, and tell us about what they’re looking forward seeing at Blessington in July.
This time it’s the turn of alternative-pop act Come On Live Long. Read below to see what they had to say and check out who they have chosen for the group’s Knockanstockan playlist. The band play the Burrow Stage, Saturday at 7.30pm.
Just trying to pick the playlist for this years Knockanstockan is testament to the wealth of talent in Ireland and especially talent that festivals like Knockanstockan and their crew have nurtured through venues like Sweeney’s and the festival itself. There are so many acts that we wanted to add and acts that aren’t on Spotify like Myles Manley, Beach and Vameel.
So this is the list of 12 we’ve compiled. A lot of these acts we’ve had the pleasure of working with in some form or other, some of them we haven’t. We really believe that this years festival is going to be one of the best in Ireland this year. We are very proud to be playing it. See you all down there.
