As the UK’s festival season comes to an end once again, Butserfest sets to give it a great send off as it is one of the last festivals of the summer. The festival has a great mixture of established, up and coming and local bands. 

Mallory Knox hit the stage at 3 o’clock and took it by storm. It was great to see a band so appreciatively of the reaction they got from the crowd and there seemed to be a sense of surprise within the band to the amount of people who sang there words back to them. I feel this will be a reoccurrence from now on with their great live show. 

Next up was Don Broco, who had the crowd in their hands from the word go. They had an energetic performance that got the crowd really going, with even the lead singer himself ending up in the middle of a mosh pit. Don Broco never fails to have a fantastic performance. 

Canterbury had the difficult task of falling Don Broco’s killer performance; however this had no effect on the band at all, as they breezed though their performance playing a confident set with all this hits from both their new and old album.    

Futures struggled at the being of their set to get their footing after following two very energetic sets; luckily by the end of their set they re - engaged with the crowd and finished on a high. 


To follow was Yashin who really got the audience going and jumping until the crowd just became one big circle pit. Having a heavier set than many other bands on the bill, it went down fantastically well .

Second highest on the bill were Lower Than Atlantis, who have come a long way since last year. LTA never fails to take command of the fans in a powerfully and fast moving set. Finishing with their beloved song ‘Sad Song’ . 


Headliners Kids in Glass Houses made sure that their last Festival performance was going to be a good one, and they definitely  did it, playing a mixture of songs from all three albums making the end of this great day, just one big party!
