One of the highlights of Hillside Festival, was The Franklin Electric. Montreal based band The Franklin Electric is pop-alternative meets classical. Touring constantly since winning a Nashville songwriting competition against 8000 other artists, they have travelled from Canada to Australia. These lads have a pop singer songwriter sound, with the trumpet, as a ‘secret weapon’ to show you how well rounded their sound is. A ‘battle call’ as Jon Matte likes to put it. Playing two trumpets at one stage, during their show, The Franklin Electric showed grate stamina under the warm Lake Stage tent. The Franklin Electric got the crowd going Saturday afternoon, infusing electricity into the Happy Hilliders.
