Alive and Kicking

Transatlantic trio Foster the People will hopefully bring some of their native Californian sunshine on their return to Reading + Leeds this year. Their huge hit Pumped Up Kicks refused to leave the radio in 2011 and made the way for a glorious performance on R+L's Festival Republic stage.

With lead singer Mark Foster an ex-commercial jingle writer, their joyous sound is reminiscent of MGMT on a night out with Animal Collective. Get ready to see Foster and his people promoting their indie dance revolution with a resplendent set this August.
