The boys are back and so am I!

How have you all been?! First of all a huge shoutout to Maybrit who has kept this website going while I’ve been busy with other commitements. You go girl!

Now, as you all probably know by now, I love taking trips down memory lane. Only yesterday my facebook informed me that “on this day two years ago” I shared a basementpeople.com post called “The boys are back”. I remember saying to my Dad that they’ve been back almost as long as they were gone. Where did that time go?!

Anyway, two years on, the band post this on their social media…

You saw it, announcement friday at 12pm GMT! I’ll be live tweeting so get in touch!
What do you think the boys will be announcing? A new album? A new tour? Let us know!

Hey guys!

Long time, no see. I haven’t been on in a while, but summer is finally upon us so I’ll have a bit more time to keep in touch! How is everyone? How has your summer been so far? Mine kicked off in the best of ways: with a Two Door gig!

Last saturday, on the 1st of July, I went to see Two Door for the 11th time at the festival La Nuit de l’Erdre near Nantes in France. What a day – it was such a wonderful way to start the summer. I went with my dad and brother, who hadn’t seen the band since 2013, and met up with some friends I hadn’t seen in years. My family couldn’t get over how much the band had changed, my friends had the time of their lives, and Two Door were fantastic, as always. They came on stage at 22:30, so everyone was pretty excited. Their live performance, the light show, the crowd… Everything was brilliant. The setlist was still very Tourist History/Beacon with only a few Gameshow songs, but I can understand why they would chose to play their better known songs at a festival. My highlights were Something Good Can Work and Lavender, though I must say they gave every song everything they had. I was also lucky to meet up with Ben after the show, which was lovely, as always. The festival itself was also very enjoyable, it was quite small which gave it a very friendly atmosphere, and there was plenty to do and see all afternoon. I’d definitely go back. Thanks again to everyone who made last saturday such a great day!

I don’t know when I’ll see the band again, which is always an odd feeling. When I saw them last february in Paris I knew I had this show coming up, whereas now… I’ll have to wait until they announce another european tour!

Stay tuned for some more basement people stories – one from our very own Maybrit will be online very soon! If you would like to share your gig/festival experience, do get in touch!

Have a wonderful summer basement peeps.

Much love,

Hey basement people!

How is everyone? Have you been enjoying Two Door’s recent gigs? If so, get in touch, we’d love to hear & share your stories!
If you haven’t seen Two Door lately and/or haven’t been able to secure tickets to one of their upcoming shows, here’s a chance to see the band and do some great work for War Child.

EXPERIENCE WILDERNESS FESTIVAL FOR FREE WITH WAR CHILD

– See great artists while helping a fantastic cause –

War Child, the charity for children affected by conflict, is calling for volunteers to join them at Wilderness festival and experience the event for free, while supporting the worthwhile cause.

Music fans can enjoy all that the award-winning festival has to offer, plus save on the price of a ticket, by signing up to become a volunteer at https://www.warchild.org.uk/festivals.

Set amongst the lakes, forests and parkland of Oxfordshire’s exquisite Cornbury Estate, Wilderness is regularly voted one of the best festivals in the UK. From 3 – 6 August, headliners Two Door Cinema Club, Grace Jones and Bonobo, plus First Aid Kit, Michael Kiwanuka and many more will be taking to the stage.

Whether fans simply want to experience the buzz and atmosphere of a festival or have missed out on tickets to see their favourite act – volunteering with War Child is the perfect way to embrace the festival spirit and support the charity.

War Child has 305 volunteer spaces at Wilderness as well as opportunities to attend more top festivals around the country. All of the roles are stewarding, and volunteers will be the eyes and ears of site organisers – from providing information to music fans, directing queues at box offices, manning emergency exits next to the main stage, and generally making sure everyone is happy and safe.

Wilderness is fast approaching so don’t miss this chance to get together with friends, meet new people and have fun while enjoying the incredible weekend.

Everyone who signs up will get free entry to the festival and a meal voucher per shift, on top of learning valuable new skills. Stewards will be required to do three eight-hour shifts over the four festival days – so will have one day off and can do whatever they like in the rest of their free time. All volunteers will be needed at the festival site from 2 – 7 August and will have access to the designated War Child camping area.

A deposit of £80 is required for first time volunteers and £40 for students and returning volunteers.

For anyone wanting to sign up or know more – all information is on the War Child Website https://www.warchild.org.uk/festivals or on the War Child festival Facebook page.

For volunteering enquiries please contact festivals@warchild.org.uk

I really hope some of you guys find this of interest, do let us know if you plan on working alonside War Child at Wilderness (and seeing Two Door, of course), we’d love to hear about it.
I hope you’re all well.

Lots of love,
Saoirse.
