Featuring

The Killers

The Killers appearing at this event

The Killers are the Las Vegas-based four-piece who formed in 2003, featuring the talents of singer/keyboardist Brandon Flowers, drummer Ronnie Vanucci, guitarist Dave Keuning and bassist Mark Stoermer. They take their name from the logo of the bass drum belonging to a fictional band in New Order's music video for the song 'Crystal'. One of the biggest rock bands of the 21st century, with worldwide sales in excess of 28 million, the band has also received multiple Grammy nominations, American Music Award nominations, MTV Video Music Awards and NME Awards. From their early unforgettable hits including 'Mr Brightside' and 'Somedbody Told Me' to later anthems like 'When You Were Young' and 'Human' through to their annual charity Christmas singles, the band have constantly evolved with their hugely successful brand of pop indie-rock.

Liam Gallagher

Liam Gallagher appearing at this event

One of the pioneers of '90s Brit pop, Liam Gallagher rose to fame as the lead singer of the rock band Oasis, and later as the singer of Beady Eye, before performing as a solo artist after the dissolution of both previous bands. His erratic behaviour, distinctive singing style, and abrasive attitude have been the subject of commentary in the press; but he remains one of the most recognisable figures in modern British music.

Travis Scott

Travis Scott appearing at this event

Like the wildest rollercoaster imaginable, Missouri City, Texas-born and Los Angeles-based multiplatinum iconoclast Travis Scott flips popular music, culture, and fashion upside down. Bathed in bright lights, scents of carnival pleasures, and the climactic screams of millions worldwide, his third full-length album, ASTROWORLD [Cactus Jack Records/Epic Records], opened as the undisputed, undeniable, and ultimate musical attraction of 2018 catapulting it to #1 on the Billboard Top 200. Acclaimed by Pitchfork, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and more and gracing the cover of GQ, this takeover paved the way for his second MTV VMA performance, ASTROWORLD Festival in Houston, and a gargantuan arena tour in 2019. The Houston rapper’s live shows have become the stuff of a legend with Billboard writing, 'Travis Scott’s penchant for raging, off-the-wall live shows have become an essential part of his career'.

The Irish Indie-electro-pop three-piece formed in 2007, when founding members Alex Trimble and Sam Halliday met at Bangor Grammar school and subsequently teamed up with Kevin Baird.

Their success led them to signing with Parlophone for their 2016 3rd album 'Gameshow'. Their 4th release; 'False Alarm', follows in June 2019.

Bastille

The Vaccines

The Vaccines appearing at this event

London-based four-piece The Vaccines firmly believe that less is more, with songs like 'Wreckin' Bar (Ra Ra Ra)' clocking in at under two minutes! Their fast and furious brand of giddy rock 'n' roll could almost be the sound of the Libertines and Ramones falling down the stairs at 100MPH. The band released their debut album What Did You Expect From The Vaccines in 2011, which became the biggest selling debut album by a band that year, while the 2012 follow up, Come Of Age, reached number one in the UK album charts. They have continued to have top 5 chart albums with 2015's English Graffiti and 2018's Combat Sports. "On record the Vaccines wallow in the echo-drenched wooziness made famous by the Jesus And Mary Chain, but live they reach back further through pop's past glories, stirring the shimmering girl group drama conjured by Phil Spector and scuzzed up by the Ramones." -The Guardian.

Catfish and the Bottlemen

Catfish and the Bottlemen appearing at this event

One of the most exciting guitar bands to burst through in the UK in recent times, Catfish and the Bottlemen formed in 2007 in North Wales. Their debut album, The Balcony, reached number 10 in the UK Albums Chart and they won their first Brit Award for British Breakthrough act in February 2016. This was followed by the release of their second album, The Ride, in May 2016.

Wolf Alice

Wolf Alice appearing at this event

North London's Wolf Alice take their name from a book by Angela Carter. Originally a solo project for frontwoman Ellie Roswell, it soon expanded into a full four-piece band with Joff Oddie (guitar, vocals), Theo Ellis (bass) and Joel Amey (drums, vocals). Eloquently described by Clash Magazine as ‘the lovechild of folk and grunge’, Wolf Alice's off-kilter sound has seen folky vocals combine with the alt-rock of 90's bands like Hole and Elastica.

Everything Everything

Everything Everything appearing at this event

This Manchester outfit blend falsetto vocals with synths, guitars and discordant pop hooks.

After an initial level of cult success, they broke through in 2013 with second album 'Arc' which reached no.5 on the UK album charts, followed by 2015's 'Get To Heaven' at no.7 and 2017's 'A Fever Dream' at no.5.

tune-yards

tune-yards appearing at this event

A right bag of kooky weirdness. The work of New England's Merrill Garbus, it's all jarring guitars, African yodelling and clanking great drums. It sounds like it should be a horrible mess but her tribal post punk is actually terribly compelling.
