Citadel are proud to announce Foals as our 2017 headliner, and a UK festival exclusive.
The quintet from Oxford have, over the past few years, become one of the greatest live acts on the scene thanks to their crowd-conquering sets, which have seen them headline festivals across the world.
After forming in 2005, Foals quickly made a name for themselves as one of the hottest live bands in the UK. With debut album Antidotes incurring chaotic living room gigs, follow-up Total Life Forever saw the band exploring a heavier sound, and stadiums beckoned by the time the critically-acclaimed album Holy Fire arrived in 2013.
Their most recent body of work, 2015’s What Went Down, has only served to cement the band’s reputation as a force to be reckoned with. Routinely earning five star reviews and accolades for their live shows, Foals were named as Best Live Act by Q in 2013, then, simply, Best Act In The World 2015.
This headlining set will serve not only as the epic culmination to what has been a whirlwind 12 years for Foals, but as a defining musical moment of the summer.
