Two Door Cinema Club, The Vaccines, You Me At Six and more for Community Festival 2018

The London indie bash returns

London festival Community have revealed their first line-up additions for 2018, with Two Door Cinema Club set to top the bill.

Their biggest headline show to date, the festival will also see The Vaccines and You Me At Six appearing, alongside Circa Waves, Rat Boy, Sundara Karma, Pale Waves and Tom Grennan, with more bands set to be announced.

Tickets for Community Festival 2018 are on sale Monday December 4 at 9AM.

Last year, the capital bash was headlined by Catfish & The Bottlemen, with The Wombats, Slaves and more appearing across the weekend.

Speaking to NME before their Leeds Festival Main Stage set, Two Door Cinema Club said the sonic change that heralded 2016’s Gameshow album has encouraged them to be more adventurous.

“We’ve gone all over the place,” said singer Alex Trimble. “Obviously the last record was a big jump from the previous two and that’s kind of opened us up to thinking of going in even more different places, and so there’s a huge spectrum of ideas in the pot right now.”

Guitarist Sam Halliday added: “It’s been a pretty crazy 18 months/two years for us so we’ve not really had as much time in a studio as maybe we would have liked, but yeah, we’re finishing up in October and we’re hoping to take those ideas beyond the ideas stage.”

When NME interviewed Festival Republic director Melvin Benn – who is responsible for the Reading & Leeds line-up – earlier this month, he suggested that  the group were potential bill-toppers. “There’s no doubt that acts like Two Door Cinema Club will want to be a headliner in the future and I hope they make it,” said Benn.
