Following five-star rave reviews for their recent live shows and latest release Trouble Will Find Me, which reached the top three in the charts on both sides of the Atlantic, Brooklyn-based indie rock band The National are well and truly on a roll.
With six critically acclaimed albums and a reputation for great live shows, The National are now one of America's favourite bands and are sure to deliver one of the most memorable Festival Big Top shows in recent years.
Matthew Houck, the sole member of Phosphorescent has been compared to Bob Dylan and Will Oldham. The London Evening Standard declared him 'the most significant American in his field since Curt Cobain'.
