Firefly Festival: Thursday Diary

Alex Noize's Thursday Diary

Alex Noize gives you the low down on everything that happened at Firefly Festival's first night. (2 minutes)

I got here, tried to catch Anna Lunoe, I missed her, because I got a little bit lost trying to find the stage, which I’m a bit upset about. But, I stumbled across Kaleo who had really good energy for his set actually. I really enjoyed that band – they were really good, their lead singer was really energetic.


I think that’s the theme of the Thursday night really, energetic lead singers.

Kaleo were really good. Then I moved on and went to watch Glass Animals. They were the headliner for Thursday night and they absolutely killed it!

People were camping out to see them for a while and they’re obviously a very popular band out here – I think they’re originally from England. The leader singer, again, was jumping all over the place. People were going crazy!


Then, went from there to see Gryffin. He’s an electronic DJ, plays more of the ‘future bass’ / house music as well. He’s getting the crowd going. I thought he would be a little bit more energetic for that really, since it was the Thursday night people were still a little bit too conservative, but I guess that will change on Friday night and Saturday night as well.

And then, going off that energy, seeing as they were more energetic, I went and saw Glass Animals close out their set. As I said before, I really enjoyed…
