While many of us are worried about next coronavirus outbreak, it’s good to spend autumn evening with great music. Today we give you the concert of IDLES at Pohoda Festival in 2017.

In 2017, IDLES had full summer plans to conquer European festival. After playing at Roskilde, Download and Bilbao festivals, it was a perfect time to play at famous Slovakian festival in 2017. Performing among alt-J and Solange, gave the band chance to break through the world.

If you feel sluggish, members of IDLES are the best recipe to give you joy and energy. The atmosphere at the concert will bring memories of a powerful mashpit and summer fun. British group doesn’t need to use special effects or developed stage to get audience attention. IDLES easily got connected with the crowd during songs such as ‘White Privilege’ and ‘Rottweiler’.

The year of 2018 is taken by storm by Idles with their second music record in career named Joy as an Act of Resistance. This quintet comes from Bristol, UK and their musical expression contains vigorous punk rock and hardcore influences. Idles’ live performances are high octane and energetic shows.
