Saint Etienne are ‘terrified’ about headlining Primavera

Saint Etienne are terrified about headlining the Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona, a role they’re filling after Björk dropped out.
Pete from the group told This Is Fake DIY as much in this quite interesting interview.
“It’s terrifying!,” he exclaimed. “It’s quite funny because Sarah said, ‘is everyone free to do it on a different day?’ And it was ‘yeah, that sounds good’. And then we realised what had happened.”
This isn’t to say they’re not pleased. Pete went on: “Just the fact that they asked us to do it was great. It’s brilliant. It’s such a good line up, to be on top of it, is like…wow.”
The new Saint Etienne album, ‘Words And Music By Saint Etienne’, is out now, and the Primavera thing is on Saturday June 2.
