Musos’ Guide favourites, Nix Moon, will headline the Firestone Stage at Vantastival 2017 on Sunday June 4. Over the course of six weeks, competing against eleven other acts, Nix Moon have prevailed victorious at Firestone’s Battle of the Bands Competition. The final took on Thursday the 11th of May in Odd Mollies, Drogheda, where the band battled it out against four other acts. As well as headlining the Firestone stage at Vantastival, the prize consists of a €1,800 voucher for Musicmaker, Dublin, as well as three days recording time at world renowned Grouse Lodge Studios, Co. Westmeath.
Over three years, the band have been busy touring festivals throughout Ireland, such as Electric Picnic, Knockanstockan and BARE in the Woods, as well as selling out venues across Leinster. Their debut EP Soul Traffic was released last summer and following this, the band went on to win ‘Best Performers’ at the Busker Fleadh in Dublin, last September.
