The Drums at Glastonbury: ‘We’d never go to festivals as punters!’ – video

Brooklyn band surprised by Glastonbury's hugeness

The Drums have admitted that they wouldn’t actually go to festivals if they weren’t playing.

The New Yorkers, who played a well-received set on Glastonbury’s John Peel Stage yesterday (June 27), following their more intimate gig for Strummerville on the site, gave NME their views on festivals in general in a video interview you can watch on the right of your screen now.

“Festivals aren’t exactly our favourite thing. I think that as individuals none of us would ever go to a festival,” singer Jonathan Pierce admitted, though he quickly added: “But we’re really glad to be playing all of them as a band!”

The video also sees the band reveal their shock at Glastonbury‘s overall size and atmosphere.
