Lee-Ann at Wander Landes Festival

Lee-Ann at Wander Landes Festival
Wander Landes Festival is a new festival of surf, music and food in Hossegor from 21-24th September. Hosted by Sunset Sons, we caught up with local surfer Lee-Ann Curren who is playing at the festival.
Lee-Ann, how stoked are you to playing at Wander Landes Festival in your home town?
Very stoked! The Sunset Sons have become my good friends over the years and they always put on a good show when they play live, so being invited to play at a festival with them is very exciting.  I know there will be a great vibe.
What’s the best thing about Hossegor?
There is really good surfing in here especially in September. You can also eat good healthy food around the lake or at the beach, go for a walk in the forest. And there’s some good live music playing at the local bars.
Where to head for the surf if you don’t know the area?
There is two different kinds of set ups in Hossegor depending on the swell. Some spots will deliver A frame kind of heavy but perfect barrels. But when they don’t work, Seignosse will often get fun with left and right rip bowls depending on the sand banks. And when it gets big, La Nord looks a bit like Sunset Beach (Hawaii), except on sand.

What are you looking forward to most about the festival?
I’m looking forward to playing music of course, but also the foamie contest is something I don’t want to miss!

Describe your music style?
Now that I play on my own, I would say my music style is dream pop with an aquatic vibe.

Here SunsetSons talk about the Wander Landes Festival happening 21-24 September in Hossegor.

Biarritz native Lee-Ann Curren , daughter of living legend Tom Curren, will join Sunset Sons in the surf and on stage on Saturday 23rd September. Swapping the shires of Cornwall for the sands of Seignosse, four-piece band Haunt the Woods will bring their unique sound to the Salle des Bourdaines. The final act joining Sunset Sons in Seignosse is Consolers . Delivering performances that never fail to get the young and the old smiling, this Hanover born band will be bringing their colourful chorus-driven sounds to The Wander Landes Festival. Acts will put on additional performances throughout Seignosse in Heads Beach Brewing Company, Louvine and L’Acaï.
“Since releasing our debut album last year and playing many different festivals across Europe, we decided that it was time to bring the party vibe to our hometown. Hossegor is where this band started, it’s where we all met and it really does means everything to us. Having the opportunity to invite our friends to play at The Wander Landes Festival while incorporating different parts of the town is going to be ace.” Sunset Sons
