Everything Everything Benicassim 2013

Everything Everything have been telling Radio X about some of the interesting people that they have been meeting as they've been trekking around the festival circuit.

When the band were playing at T In The Park last weekend, bassist Jeremy Pritchard and drummer Michael Spearman met the legendary German techno pioneers Kraftwerk.

"Jeremy did have to sit down afterwards, he was quite overwhelmed," Spearman told Radio X's Sunta Templeton, backstage at the Benicassim festival in Spain. "We met Ralf Hutter, who's the only surviving founding member, because I think he's fired everybody else!

"He was really nice and polite… and impeccable as you might expect. But the set was great. It helped that we had loads of vodka and Pepsi Max.

Jeremy assured us that the bands would meet again at Latitude festival this weekend: "We're best friends now. They know how to party. Ralf didn't text me, he sent me a telegram."
