FEVER 333 follow Noahfinnce in an eruptive upheaval, nothing short of a party. Mere seconds into their first song, a mosh pit forms, spurred on by the riotous tornado tearing up the room.

Frontman Jason Aalon Butler dismantled the PA before mounting it like his own personal podium as his bandmates covered every inch of the stage with wild moves.

Beneath the exhibitionism, they sound enormous. Butler’s visceral screams reflect his between-song speeches in support of Palestine and women. “None of us are free til all of us are free,” he says. It is a sobering remark felt by all those present.

FEVER 333 leaves the crowd as a human-rights-fuelled sea of mosh, revelling in opposition to the pain and complexity of the 21st Century that just shouldn’t exist.

It truly feels like one for the ages as they surrendered the stage to Wembley’s headliner.

Noahfinnce

The evening begins with Noahfinnce, a social media star turned pop-punk frontman, moving up the ranks in the alternative world. Popular amongst the progressive youth, Noahfinnce sets the tone with his playful yet politically charged set.

He shows great potential despite his newcomer status and serves as an on-brand opener for the night.
