PANEL TOPICS – IN CONVERSATION WITH DAVE ROWNTREE
Friday - BME
Drummer, activist and animator Dave Rowntree made his name in the heart of the 90’s Brit-pop craze as the drummer and co-founder of Blur. Over the last 3 decades the band have won over 40 music awards including 5 Brit Awards for Best British Album, Best British Single, Best British Group and more.
Best known for their singles ‘Parklife’, ‘Song 2’ and ‘Girls And Boys’, Dave’s pumping drum-style has always been at the core of the Blur sound. Now he has found more time to expand on his activism, he has become a politician for the Labour Party and county councillor for the University division in Norwich. He has also explored his love for radio, TV and computer animation.
