MiG 15

Words by Gary Lambert

One of our tips to watch at FestEvol: Future Yard edition is MiG 15. With a stylish collection of eighties-inspired tunes and a set of confident players on stage, they’re going to offer you a set that’ll make you add to your playlist. We caught up with lead singer Adam Bray to see how they’re looking for this festival season.

Popped Music: How are MiG 15 doing right now? Mig 15: We are all really looking forward to getting back out there and playing live music again. It’s been to long and we’re all itching for it.

Why are you looking forward to playing FestEvol? Not only is it our first gig back, but it’s also somewhere we’ve never played before. We’ve heard so many good things about the venue. Plus FestEvol is always a good day. Bands, beer, and hopefully some sunshine. What could be better!

Will you have any new tracks to play at FestEvol? With it being so long since we’ve been out into the wild we’ve had a lot of time to work on new material. So of course we’ll be trying out some bee tracks for the festival. They are some of my personal favourites we’ve done so far.

Are there any artists you are looking forward to catching at FestEvol? I’m really looking forward to seeing The Hushtones. They’ve been releasing some great stuff as of late. Also Seafoam Green and Trudy and The Romance are two bands I’ve been wanting to see live for a while.

What do you think makes festival season so important to MiG15? Festivals are so important to up and coming bands. It’s a chance to play to an audience that may not be familiar with your work. Our sound, I feel, lends itself to a festival stage too, so hopefully we can play and gain some new MiG fans.

What are your favourite memories of festivals?  Nothing beats Glasto. We’ve not had the honour of playing it YET. But it’s one of the most special places on earth. I have seen so many unbelievable bands there.

Who is in charge of the music that gets played in the van?  Are there any go-to tracks/albums that you always play? We try to be diplomatic when it comes to what goes on in the van. But 80s rammers are always on the cards. Bands like Talking Heads and Tears For Fears are always going to get blasted out of the speakers.

Are you playing any other festivals this summer? With everything happening this year and last we’ve had things pushed back, moved round and cancelled. So i can’t say for certain if we will or we won’t be. But I really hope there are many more shows on the cards this summer.

You’ve got until 6pm on Friday 39 July to buy a ticket to watch MiG 15, Zuzu, Pixey, The Mysterines and more at Future Yard. Get yours here.
