Sløtface, Scandinavia’s up and coming punk wonder kids, talk about the coolest bands they’re seeing soon and their festival plans, which include a slot at this year’s Secret Garden Party (21-24 July).
How would you describe your sound?
We love jangly guitars, melodic bass lines and hectic drums with a vocal that combines the best of punk and pop.
Tell us what you’ve been up to since last summer?
For the past five months we’ve been writing our debut album. We’ve also toured a lot. We toured Norwegian high schools for a month and supported Fufanu on their UK-tour. Both were incredible fun.
What festivals are you playing this year?
We’re mostly in Norway for the summer recording, but we’re playing a few select shows. We’re especially looking forward to playing the Secret Garden Party in the UK.
Who else are you excited to see at the festival?
Right now we´re all about seeing LCD Soundsystem this summer. We’ve bought tickets to see them in June and are so excited. We’re also finally seeing Los Campesinos! as they are one of our favourite bands ever, with Band of Skulls, Circa Waves and Rat Boy.

If you could curate your own festival what would the line-up look like with artists dead or alive? ?
We actually have plans to use Lasse’s grandparents’ villa by the ocean to set up an underground festival. It’s located outside Bergen and all our friends could hang out and play. That would be the dream. We’ll let you know when it happens.
What’s your best festival memory? ?
Probably when we played the Øya festival in Oslo last year, which was incredible. It’s the biggest audience we’ve ever played for and the nicest backstage we’ve ever seen – the backstage area has a pool.
What’s in your festival survival kit?
Antibacterial gel, a water bottle and a disposable camera.
Apart from music, what should the ideal festival have??
A pool, beach or some kind of swimming possibilities.
