Bloc Party Discuss Performing at Festivals & Writing on Tour

Kele Okereke and Justin Harris, of the seasoned festival band Bloc Party, sat down with Fuse at Governors Ball 2016. The two spoke candidly about their experience with festivals and the possibility of a tour documentary—or a “mockumentary,” as Harris joked in reference to the film This is Spinal Tap.

“I like playing festivals,” Okereke told Fuse. “I like the fact that it’s always a bit of a fight because you’re playing for lots of people who won’t necessarily know that much about your music. It’s always an opportunity to have fun. 

Watch above as Okereke talks about what he likes about festivals and what the creative process on tour is like. Follow that up with Grace Potter giving her five festival hacks below.
