Artists / Line-up

Cold War Kids

Due to music industry hype following SXSW Festival in 2006, this US band were tipped for big things before they even reached our fair shores. Citing influences ranging from Bob Dylan to Nina Simone, their brooding, bluesy commentary takes you to the dark side of America - and it's a very pleasant journey indeed.

Saturday - INMWT Stage (See full line up)

Set List

i saw most of there songs they were great i have gone and got the album

These guys are good ,very good , in fact brilliant. That basically describes my feelings during their excellent performance.I like the way they don't stick to just the Normal type of instruments and experiment with freaky ideas(i.e maracas played on thimbles on a speakerbox-great)So much Energy and Talent - A GREAT ACT FOR AN AMAZING FESTIVAL
