Covers

tinyjo and I believe that festivals should oblige all performers to play at least one cover version. Discuss.

Yes
Given the variety of music played at a festival, chances are high that a significant proportion of the audience won't know your work. Therefore, it behooves the entertainer to do a cover of some things that interest them that may also be known by more of the audience out there.

Yes! Pretty much agreeing with the above poster, it is a chance for someone who doesn't know anything about you to connect to what you are playing. If you give the cover a sufficient dose of your own style and flare, you might woo some listeners into checking out your other music. Even if you don't personalize too much, you're providing additional entertainment to the listeners that might otherwise not pay attention. Covers are a fun and easy way to engage a crowd :)


(Also, it looks like you guys wont be back before I head out in the morning! Farewell, please send me British things!)

I know that seeing the Divine Comedy (Neil Hanlon archly: "Since this is a rock festival, we felt we should play at least one rock song") covering Queens of the Stone Age was a highlight of my (so far only) Glastonbury . . .
