Jet: ‘crowd didn’t want us to play old songs at V Festival’

Jet admitted that they were surprised with the reaction to their new material at the Chelmsford leg of V Festival.

Speaking to Ben Jones from Absolute Radio, guitarist Cam Muncey revealed that the group were ‘stoked’ with the response.

 “I got the strangest feeling that they didn’t want us to play our older songs today,” said Muncey, “The newer ones seemed to go down, in some ways, better than the older ones. Obviously not something like ‘Are You Going To Be My Girl’, but they really responded well to ‘Black Arts’ and especially ’17’, which has a European or British chant in the chorus which reminds me of a football song, so we’re stoked it was a really good crowd.”
