Sunset Sons have announced the launch of their new four-day event that celebrates live music, surfing and fine cuisine. Weaving its way through Seignosse, The Wander Landes Festival presented by VISSLA and Heads Beach Brewing Company will appear at a selection of different hotspots on Thursday 21st September – Sunday 24th September 2017.
The festival will be based around the bands passion for the ocean, music and their adopted home town of Hossegor. The festival will have a unique and beautiful back drop of pine forests and golden sands, the French surf paradise will burst to life with a blend of live performances, delicious street food, surf competitions and afterparties. Culminating in one epic live show at the Salle des Bourdaines in Seignosse, The Wander Landes Festival will give fans the opportunity to see Sunset Sons perform on their adopted home turf.
As it is their festival, it is only natural that Sunset Sons close it off and if any of you have seen them perform know the pure energy in which this band harness. One can only imagine what the Anglo-Aussie band will bring to their own back yard. They will also be joined by Bristol-based indie rock outfit New Carnival. The newcomers are fast building a reputation for a fierce live performance driven by their funk driven sets. Not to mention a string of popular single releases that have caught the attention of BBC Radio 1.
Also gracing the stage with their distinctive voice and mesmerizing guitar style is London-based singer songwriter Nathan Ball, whose love of nature is naturally reflected in his music, writing his best material when by the sea, in the mountains or in the woods.
Biarritz native Lee-Ann Curren, daughter of living legend Tom Curren, will join Sunset Sons in the surf and on stage on Saturday 23rd September. Displaying flawless style both in and out of the water. In fact Lee-Ann can often be found in the studio with the boys.
The festival will also see Cornwall natives Haunt the Woods make an appearance, whose Combination of progressive rock, alternative folk, four-part harmonies and spellbinding guitar make them a true wonder to watch.
The final act joining Sunset Sons in Seignosse is Consolers. Delivering performances that never fail to get the young and the old smiling, this Hanover born band will be bringing their colourful chorus-driven sounds to festival.
The Wander Landes Festival is sure to be a weekend of sandy feet, salty hair and satisfied souls. Commenting on the festival the band said “Since releasing our debut album last year and playing many different festivals across Europe, we decided that it was time to bring the party vibe to our hometown. Hossegor is where this band started, it’s where we all met and it really does means everything to us. Having the opportunity to invite our friends to play at The Wander Landes Festival while incorporating different parts of the town is going to be ace.”
