A Weekend with Spring King

Back in August we gave Manchester band Spring King a disposable camera to take with them over the weekend as they journeyed from North to South playing Leeds and Reading Festivals.

Here’s what happened.

 

The festival weekend started on Friday in sunny Leeds where the band arrived later than anticipated after their car broke down.

Not long after arriving they were straight into doing some press and photographing the NME photographer.

The lads reckon between them they probably know around 65% of the service stations on the motorway and which have fruit machines and the best eats.
