My Dream Festival: Milestones

After a long cold winter, it’s time to start thinking about festival season! And as always, this year kicks off with Slam Dunk Festival. The event takes place on Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May, and will once again be held one day after the other in Leeds, Hatfield, and Birmingham. At the helm this year sees Good Charlotte and Jimmy Eat World battling it out for the headline slot with Northlane, The Audition and Lower Than Atlantis being just some of the big highlights.

As we miss the summer delight of festivals so much, we’ve grabbed a whole bunch of bands playing Slam Dunk this year to talk us through what would make up their dream festival, from location to bands and food. Manchester pop-punks Milestones are preparing for their slow on the Breakout Stage and are sure to be playing plenty off their debut record ‘Red Lights’ which came out earlier this year. We caught up with vocalist Matt Clarke to find out what a festival would be like if he was in charge.

MILESTONES

Where would your dream festival be held?
Matt: Probably Japan, just because I really would love to go to Japan!

What would the theme be?
Matt: It would be all about good boys (doggos).

Who would play? Who else would be on the line-up?
Matt: Slayer would headline, and as main support it would be Milestones. Opening would be The Beatles and System Of A Down (playing only ‘Chop Suey’). The other bands would include MC Devo, The Hotelier & Foo Fighters (but no Dave Grohl).

What food and booze would be served?
Matt: Sweet and Sour Chicken w/ Ketchup & Chips. Only Rose wine.

What extra non-music related entertainment would there be?
Matt: Virtual Reality Headsets whilst people listen to the music and lots of rose-pong!
