Deaf Havana bounced and danced across the stage.

Crowd favourite Mildred appeared early in the set, providing fans with a mixture of old and new material that also showcased standout tracks from there back catalogue.

The appreciative crowd sang along to every song and matched the bands energy throughout the set.

Deaf Havana’s style has evolved over years and the latest tracks highlight the new synth sound.

Songs such as Ritual and Holy sound heavier and more powerful it complemented the bands energetic style and performance.

After a memorable set, Deaf Havana exited the stage as the crowd began to chant for more.

They returned with gratitude and brought the night to a brilliant close with Sinner – the biggest single from the Rituals album.
