Playlist #1: The Tung's Best Bites
You don’t know us, we don’t know you (unless you’ve clicked on the link we’ve just emailed you in which case you’re our mums - hi mum), so let’s rectify that.
We could tell you something about ourselves, maybe divulge a dark, terrible secret but we’re not that stupid. This is the internet and IP addresses are trackable. We thought instead we could offer you a glimpse into our souls another way - by letting you take a listen to our very favourite songs. Songs that have soundtracked group hugs, solo cries, transcendental moments and some pretty ordinary ones too, but which nevertheless each mean something to us. Some compromise has taken place as one of us submitted somewhere in the ball park of a billion songs for consideration of the group, but we eventually arrived on a solid 50.
Listen below and stare into the abyss.
Family-friendly euphoria was the order of the day at the inaugural Cross The Tracks Festival.
A palpable respect for artists and festival-goers alike pulses through every element of this special festival, and after another stellar year I trust the people behind it to protect it at all costs.
Start your countdown to festival season with The Tung's Gala Festival 2019 playlist.

Idles aren’t afraid to contain multitudes: they’re furious and forgiving, jagged and smooth, wildy silly and serious as a heart attack, and the room was all the warmer for accepting that there was space there for everyone.
