What Bands F.C. do is quite simple: bands as football clubs. Football clubs as bands. Because music and football just go together.
They combine the two by incorporating the world’s most popular bands into the beautiful game’s iconic club crests. Oasis, The Stone Roses, Wu Tang Clan, Queen, Daft Punk and Beastie Boys are just some of the artists transported into the football realm in this stunning art project, with over 600 designs created since the project’s inception in 2018.
Bands F.C. first got started in July 2018 and by September their first exhibition opened at The National Football Museum in Manchester before heading to New York, being featured on Match of the Day, magazines, TV and radio shows all over the world. Their next stop? The Royal Albert Hall.
They didn’t stop at crests either: Bands F.C. went on to make football tops and enamel badges of their designs for charities chosen by Pulp, Suede, The Charlatans, Public Service Broadcasting, Manic Street Preachers and Frightened Rabbit among others.
It doesn’t matter who you support or what kind of music you like, we think you’ll love Bands F.C.
The exhibition will be on display in the Royal Albert Hall’s Ground Floor Corridor, and can be viewed when attending a performance here between Wednesday 3 April and Friday 17 May or for free on the following open days:
Saturday 20 April, 10am-4pm
