I am Nicholas James Crampton, the vocalist for Adelphia.
How did you get started?
After many years of searching for musicians, I finally met Rik (the drummer) online. We jammed in my parent’s house with two guitars just writing material and playing around which formed a musical bond that clicked. We then decided to look for members and start a band we then found auditioned Jay and Jordan.
What’s it like to make it to the final eight of the Red Bull Studios competition?
To make the final eight is an honour, we are so privileged to be in this position. To finish the competition in the final eight out of so many bands that applied and entered is amazing. We can’t thank everyone enough for the support.
Have you got any surprises in store for you Download set?
We may have one or two cards up our sleeve but I wouldn’t like to give away. They’re surprises! We have experimented with a few things that have gone down brilliantly, so hopefully it will be the same for Download!
Who are you most looking forward to seeing play at Download?
LINKIN PARK! Listening to them as a child and growing up to their music, it would be a mistake to miss them! HYBRID THEORY! – You will find me at the front.
What’s your best festival memory either personally attending as a fan or in the band? And what’s your advice to all the festival goers?
Playing Hit The Deck main stage at Rock City opening for bands such as Brand New will always be something that will stick with me. My advice would be to let yourself go and leave your worries at home. Enjoy the music, the bands and the alcohol and make the most of it!
