Incredible power, the best part of Orange Warsaw Festival
Warsaw National Stadium on June 14 2014
Concert of The Kooks was a part of Orange Warsaw Festival in Poland. In fact I was there only for them and I hoped they wouldn't let me down. They didn't. From first minutes of performance it was perfect. Luke Pritchard, vocalist of The Kooks sounded great in live, just like on original version of those songs. They had great contact with public and had so much energy during whole concert, that's why the atmosphere of the concert was unique. Also was really nice that they didn't play only new songs from "Listen" but some older songs like: "Seaside", "Sway", "Naive" or "Ooh la" too. For me everything was perfect and I can't wait to experience this one more time.

The UK indie boom of the early noughties produced some genuinely great bands, with Arctic Monkeys, the Libertines and Bloc Party all exploding onto the scene. Many of them are still going strong today, having maintained at least some semblance of cultural relevance and commercial success.
