Firestone Battle of the Bands winners Modernlove. to headline Firestone Live stage

Following a very tough call for judges at final of the Firestone BOTB 2018, local Drogheda four-piece Modernlove. won out, meaning that they’ll be headlining the Firestone Live stage on Sunday night.

Winning the BOTB means not only prizes of equipment and recording worth over €4,000 for the band, but also the Sunday headline slot on the Firestone Live stage at Vantastival 2018.

Modernlove.‘s synth- and sample-driven sound is heavily influenced by ’80s acts like Prince and Michael Jackson.  They’ve supported Hudson Taylor and The Academic in the past and are definitely a band whose star is in the ascendant: not to be missed!

(But if you do, remember their win at Firestone BOTB means they also have a slot on the main stage in 2019 for our very special Vantastival 10-year anniversary festival…)
