CRYSTAL FIGHTERS

Crystal Fighters are a colourful bunch, infusing traditional Basque folk music with electronic beats and synthesisers has enabled them to cement their place in UK music today!

With a nod to The Klaxons, CSS and Dolereon, Crystal Fighters have adapted the early-noughties sound of said bands and given it a refreshing edge.

The 5-piece East London/ Spanish band are set to release the Deluxe version of their high praised debut album 'Star of Love', including popular tracks like 'Follow’, ‘Xtatic Truth’, ‘Champion Sound’, ‘Plage’,‘At Home' and a brilliant cover of the cult Spanish song ‘Fiesta De Los Maniquins’ - released on 1st August.

“an irresistible whirlwind of unhinged joy.......infectiously, chaotically, totally brilliant.”
NME

'One of the most adventurous albums of last year'
Big Issue

So to commemorate the release, the band will be embarking a summer of festival jaunts, taking in Benicassim, Exit, Melt, and The Montreaux Jazz Festival.

In the UK they will be performing at Glastonbury, Latitude, Underage, The Big Chill, Reading & Leeds, Bestival, Wireless and the Moseley Folk Festival.

But don't fret if you are missing out on the festival season as you can
buy tickets to see them play at London o2 Shepherd's Bush on 14th September.
