Foals' Yannis Philippakis spurns artists playing 'cynically deployed covers' at festivals
The frontman says they will play a Foals show when they headline Bestival later this summer
Speaking at this weekend's Open'er Festival in Poland, the frontman discussed the band's forthcoming headline slot at Bestival.
"We should have something for Bestival," he says in the video which you can watch above. "A lot of the time recently I've been realising that a lot of bands are doing like collaborations or they do covers. Cynically employed covers. I don’t know whether to get involved in it or not. Because obviously it works and there's a reason why everyone's doing it, but I also just kind of want to play our own songs. We wrote them. And that's what we wanna play. We want to do a Foals show."
