Episode notes

Foals are one of the ultimate festival bands, so frontman Yannis brings all that field experience to play here. Including how music saved his life as a difficult teen, how he’s calmer now and recalls that drunken encounter with The Cure’s Robert Smith which he’s since atoned for. Plus Yannis reflects on the first time ever headlining a festival, and looking forward to that more than ever at Latitude 2022, which is where you will also find The Line-Up appearing live as well!
