Isle of wight festival

June 27th, 2024

what a weekend!

Wow what a weekend we had at the isle of wight festival! This festival has a very special place in our hearts and is deep rooted in the fabric of our DNA. It’s where our co-founder, Davies, reignited his love for sound and live music back in 2007, when the band he was front of house engineer for (KOOPA) opened the main stage. It’s where Flare's audio journey began.

For the last few years Flare's unique products have been used by many artists and crew, but this year we were there to look after the ears of lots more festival goers.

We met some great people, including fantastic artists Beverley Knight and Natalie Imbruglia, who both had the audience in the palm of their hands when they played Main Stage.

We had a chat backstage with the brilliant Streets - and our good friend Cassell the Beatmaker (drummer for The Streets) told us who he’s looking forward to seeing play at Glastonbury when they head there later this week. That night we were treated to one of our favourite ever live performances from them - what a tight band and what a perfect frontman Mike Skinner is. Stage diving, crowd surfing... everything you could want. If you ever get a chance to see them live we highly recommend it!

Sky Arts host Edith Bowman had a chat with Flare's inventor, Davies, about our tech - head over to her Instagram page to hear more…

New rising stars Apollo Junction told us all about their favourite sounds and we hooked up the Green Day crew with some of our Earshade ear protectors to keep their ears nice and safe on tour.

Band member, keen birder and radio DJ Matt Spracklen (what a combo) chatted to us about music and birdsong - keep an eye out for some more content from Matt in the upcoming weeks - Matt Spracklen Instagram.

We saw some brilliant performances and absolutely had the ‘time of our lives’ watching Green Day - we can’t wait for the next one!

Huge thanks to the wonderful Isle of Wight crew!

Shout out to John & Caroline Giddings and their brilliant team: Flo, Kaz and Keiran for looking after us so beautifully.
