Georgia Glastonbury 2019 Gear Guide
A standout set from the Friday heatwave, Georgia used her Simmons digital drum kit to lay down some 80’s electronic beats whilst simultaneously belting out the pop melodies that led some fans to anoint her single About Work The Dancefloor the ‘track of the summer’. Check out offerings from Roland, Yamaha and TOURTECH if you’re looking to build a similar setup. View all electronic drum kits here.
IDLES Glastonbury 2019 Gear Guide
The Bristol punk rockers put on a rollercoaster of a show that had all of their hallmark raucous energy and more. If you’re not familiar with IDLES, we’d like to point out Mark Bowen’s attire (or lack thereof) was not just because of the heat - it’s his standard gig outfit, as is his road-worn ‘71 Fender Stratocaster. We recommend picking up a version of this classic guitar from our Fender Player series or new Fender Vintera series. View all Fender Stratocaster guitars here.
Liam Gallagher Glastonbury 2019 Gear Guide
Oasis may have been long disbanded, but Liam proved he is still very relevant in modern music with a vintage Gallagher performance on the Pyramid stage, complete with the classic Gibson ES-335 Dot used by the session guitarist.
