Scottish, grubby, slightly-folky, post-Libertines indie kids The View have announced a summer date at the now regular venue of Cheshire's Delamere Forest.
As part of the Forestry Commission's phenomenally successful annual series of wooded concerts, the indie-rockers from Dundee will be following in the impressive footsteps of Paul Weller, Elbow and the Charlatans, amongst others, who have played Delamere in previous years. The View gig will be the third of an eclectic trio at Delamere this summer, following shows from Simply Red and James Morrison on the preceding two days.
The View are currently working on their third album, following 2009's Which Bitch? and the 2007 Mercury nominated debut, Hats Off To The Buskers. The lads from Dryburgh are set to rock the natural arena in a vast sloped clearing in the forest with old and new material, including monster indie hits like Superstar Tradesman, Wasted Little DJs and Same Jeans.
Sounds like a pretty good way to spend a Sunday evening in July. What's more, unlike so many music events, Forestry Commission gigs are free from sponsorship (imagine!) and all the cash generated from ticket sales is spent directly on the nation's woodlands.
Tickets are £25 (plus booking fee) and are on sale from 9.00am Thursday 29th April, below.
