What a difference a year makes.
It’s been a long hot summer, which made the atmosphere at Splendour 2018 even bigger and better. Take a look at page 14 for our highlights; you’ll also find some exclusive interviews with some of the bands that took to the Confetti stage.
And while we’re on the subject of interviews – for our autumn edition of the Wire, we’ve spoken to Kelly Bennaton of DHP (the organisation behind some of Nottingham’s bestloved venues including Rock City and Bodega, and the force behind Splendour festival). We also caught up with Nick Raphael, the President of Capitol Records who’s signed some of the biggest bands during his career, including 5 Seconds of Summer, Sam Smith and Paloma Faith.
