It is with immense pleasure that we can announce the return of Prodigy tribute JILTED GENERATION to Farmer Phil’s Festival this year following their electrifying set in 2018.
This year’s performance is sure to be as poignant as it will be energetic following the tragic passing of Prodigy frontman and cultural icon Keith Flint earlier this year.
The world’s only full live tribute band to the Prodigy have been tearing it up around the UK and parts of Europe since forming in Leamington back in 2005. After building a regional following, high profile show offers started coming in from both the UK and abroad, including TV appearances in Malta and festival appearances accompanied by former Prodigy guitarist Gizz Butt.
Regular bookings in larger venues followed as bigger, crazier crowds went wild for their chaotic live show, culminating in a headline appearance to thousands at Glastonbudget, the UK’s biggest tribute band festival.
Following a very successful couple of years filled with new opportunities, one of the biggest came in the form of getting booked overseas once more, this time in Holland. Another ‘Glastonbudget Festival’ appearance followed thereafter and also playing the dance arenas in such events as ‘Fantazia’ & ‘Raindance’. This gave the band a chance to play Prodigy sets consisting of material from 1991-1995, a much loved period for the fans and band alike.
As the world saw the launch of the fifth Prodigy studio album ‘Invaders Must Die’ This proved an exciting time for the Jilted Generation. This helped breathe new life into the sets and proved to be an experimental time for the band as they got a first hand chance to experience how the new tracks slotted into their established set alongside the mainstay live songs such as ‘Out of Space’, ‘Voodoo People’, ‘Breathe’, ‘Firestarter’ and ‘Smack My Bitch Up’.
Once again the band got booked in Europe, this time Belgium came calling, as did Holland. More rave events followed as did various venues around the country mixed in with a number of university shows, one of which took place at Staffordshire University and saw the band shared the same stage as Plan B amongst other established chart acts. Couple this with two consecutive headline slots at the tribute band festival Tribfest, the band have had a very successful time.
The band still play in an eclectic mix of venues; ranging from the small local shows to huge festival crowds around Great Britain and Europe. No matter what size the venue or crowd, the energy and passion stays the same. We’re sure this year’s performance at Farmer Phil’s Festival will be no different.
