London’s brightest new festival, Citadel has carved out its own, unique place in the music calendar. Aiming to deliver the ultimate summer Sunday with a combination of live music, good quality food and drink and unforgettable experiences, for one day of the year Citadel transforms Victoria Park into a sun-drenched utopia.
Marking the beginning of the countdown to 2017’s edition, Citadel has announced a massive headliner and a UK festival exclusive in the form of Foals. The quintet from Oxford have, over the past few years, become one of the greatest live acts on the scene thanks to their crowd-conquering sets, which have seen them headline festivals across the world.
After forming in 2005, Foals quickly made a name for themselves as one of the hottest live bands in the UK. With debut album Antidotes incurring chaotic living room gigs, follow-up Total Life Forever saw the band exploring a heavier sound, and stadiums beckoned by the time the critically-acclaimed album Holy Fire arrived in 2013.
Their most recent body of work, 2015’s What Went Down, has only served to cement the band’s reputation as a force to be reckoned with. Routinely earning five star reviews and accolades for their live shows, Foals were named as Best Live Act by Q in 2013, then, simply, Best Act In The World 2015.
This headlining set will serve not only as the epic culmination to what has been a whirlwind 12 years for Foals, but as a defining musical moment of the summer.
