Behave! Festival is arguably Cornwall’s only independent festival for alternative music. The fact that we are going to see so many unique and brilliant artists from around the country in Truro is something to be celebrated. Through the the two days The Old Bakery Studio will play host to a variety of sounds, from the brutally heavy Phoxjaw to the harmonising vocals of Daisy Clark. This is a huge opportunity for Cornwall to show the nation it wants and cares for live music, come out and show your support!

To help you get excited for the festival we have compiled five acts we cannot wait to see.

Last Hyena

These three music graduates from Cornwall who set sail to the city of Bristol have been turning heads with their instrumental math-rock. Now the boys return to Cornwall with a finely polished sound that is sure to impress. There are few bands with as much talent as these guys, they are a must see at Behave!

Mother Vulture have been taking the south-west by storm with a litany of memorable shows. They have become notorious for their ferocious live performances which sees the band howling, flailing and jumping around like lunatics. Their energy is utterly infectious and spellbinding making it almost impossible to not join them in the madness. Be prepared for powerful vocals, immense guitar play and a rhythm section worthy of AC/DC.

Arguably Cornwall’s premiere party punk duo. The gruesome twosome always put on a show and capture their audiences with their raw energy. It always amazes me how much noise they can make for two people, get your dancing shoes on for WAXX as they are oozing in groove.

Delta Sleep

Coming from the shingle beaches of Brighton is Delta Sleep, a band that make music that can only be described as beautiful. It’s a wonderful blend of post rock, alt, indie and even shoegaze, it’s hard to pin down. The unpredictability is the attraction. Delta Sleep are the perfect headliner for the Sunday and should have everyone leaving feeling warm and content.

Riding high off the back of playing at Download Festival is the Cornish hard rock outfit O’Deus. A band that is sure to turn heads with their anthemic, riff focused rock n roll. Get their early on the Saturday to get your fill of meaty riffs and sharp vocals from lead singer Amy Abbott.
