Community Festival returns this weekend with The Kooks, Blossoms, Kate Nash and many more
After two hugely successful years, Community Festival returns to Finsbury Park on 30th June 2019 with The Kooks, Blossoms, The Amazons, Don Broco, Kate Nash, The Hunna, Gerry Cinnamon and The Night Café amongst the range of names set for the defining summer celebration of guitar music.
Marking itself out in the calendar for an entire generation of indie fans, Community Festival hosts an unmissable festival line up of the biggest and best-loved British guitar bands going – following in the footsteps of legends like Oasis, The Stone Roses and The Sex Pistols to play the iconic park. Headlining its third year are indie royalty The Kooks. With a new wave of young fans, the band have amassed over one billion streams, with their debut album Inside In/Inside Out recently certified quadruple platinum and latest album Let’s Go Sunshine storming into the UK top ten in September. With huge hits in their arsenal like Naive, She Moves in Her Own Way and Seaside, a festival sing-along is certainly on the cards as The Kooks play their biggest headline show to date at Community 2019.
Frontman Luke Pritchard of The Kooks said: “It’ll be 15 years since we first formed as a band next year, and I can’t think of any better way to celebrate than headlining our biggest show to date at Community 2019. It’s been an incredible journey that’s taken us around the world, playing to so many of you and changing our lives completely – we can’t wait to have the biggest party of the summer. See you there x”
Also heading to Finsbury Park next summer are one of the most exciting British bands to emerge this decade, Blossoms. With a catalogue containing an array of belting singles and two critically acclaimed albums to their name so far, Blossoms and Cool Like You, the Stockport pop-rockers are not to be missed. Expect to hear festival anthems Charlemagne, Honey Sweet, There’s a Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls), and many more.
The Amazons will demonstrate why they are beginning to emerge as future rock greats when they step on the Community stage, with cuts from their beloved debut album sure to sound massive as they look to the future. Another main supporter are Don Broco, a true phenomenon in British rock, they have built their way to the very top across three infectious studio albums. Lead by the powerhouse presence of frontman Rob Damiani, they stand as one of the most in-demand live acts in the country – taking over arenas with hits including Automatic, Everybody, T-Shirt Song and more. Fresh from a headlining night at London’s Wembley Arena, get ready for a high-octane show stealer.
Through word of mouth hype and a devoted following, The Hunna have arguably become one of the most talked about bands in British guitar music. After storming the charts with debut album 100, second album Dare followed this with a fury of pop hooks – with their appearance at Community this year bound to elicit unrivalled scenes as The Hunna continue their march.
Other acts include Blaenavon, The Night Café, Bloxx Kate Nash, Gerry Cinnamon, Sea Girls and The Academic.
Community Festival is a one-day celebration of the best in new music. Last year’s event was headlined by Two Door Cinema Club and saw 37,500 music fans enjoy one of the hottest music shows of the summer. Catfish and the Bottlemen also headlined the debut sold-out show in 2017. With even more memories set to be made in 2019, Community Festival is the go-to destination for a summer celebration of indie.
