Festival Republic StageFridayTBA
Now a band in the midst of a stratospheric rise that is looking to take them from the MOTH Club to the O2 Kentish Town Forum in less than 18 months, Sports Team’s incomprehensible journey began with a handful of modest live
appearances across the South East before a note of music was released.
Early word of mouth whisperings led way to full-blown hype as the sextet (made up of vocalist Alex Rice, guitarist and songwriter Rob Knaggs, lead guitarist Henry Young, Bassist Oli Dewdney, drummer Al Greenwood and enigmatic multi-instrumentalist Ben Mack) released their first collection of material with January 2018’s Winter Nets. The EP took them from support act to headline pull – something in keeping with their lofty aspirations and commitment to making any show, no matter the stage, a spectacle.
