Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Community Festival have announced more acts, joining the previously announced headliners The Kooks and special guests Blossoms.
Don Broco, The Hunna, SWMRS, and Blaenavon are the latest acts to be added to the bill. The last announcement also welcomed Kate Nash, The Amazons, Gerry Cinnamon, The Academic, The Night Cafe, Sea Girls and BLOXX.
Community Festival will return to Finsbury Park on 30 June 2019 after two successful years.
Don Broco released their third studio album, Technology, at the start of 2018, reaching the top five on the official UK album chart. Most recently they unveiled new track Half Man Half God.
“We’re really excited to be playing a Community Festival this year,” the band say. “Always such a good line up and this year is no different!”
The Hunna take to Community Festival following the release of last year’s Dare, joined on the main stage by Californian surf-pop with attitude outfit SWMRS.
The N4 Stage line-up welcomes the recently returned Blaenavon, who earlier this month unveiled new track Catatonic Skinbag as a prelude for the eagerly anticipated new album.
“We can’t wait for this one,” they announce. “A festival we’ve been big fans of for a while. Gonna be pretty special blasting out the new tunes at Finsbury Park!”
Topping the bill at this year’s festival will be indie royalty The Kooks with special guests Blossoms.
The Kooks broke through in 2004 with their phenomenally successful debut album Inside In/Inside Out. Community Festival will be the band’s biggest headline show to date and they’ll be bringing huge hits such as Naive, Bad Habit and She Moves in Her Own Way to the masses in North London.
Community Festival will see The Kooks reunited with touring buddies Blossoms. The Greater Manchester five-piece have been making waves in recent years and have two top five albums to their name.
In its short life so far, Community Festival has become a fixture on the calendar for indie fans based in London and beyond. Since its first edition in 2017, the festival has welcomed thousands of fans to North London’s idyllic Finsbury Park, and seen bands such as Catfish and the Bottlemen, Two Door Cinema Club, The Vaccines, Circa Waves and more perform on its stages.
With an unmissable line-up, Community Festival is sure to be one of the highlights of the summer. Here’s the date for your diary:
