Mac DeMarco announces massive show at Margate’s Dreamland

He'll be the headline act on "a day of music and rides" this summer

Mac DeMarco has announced a summer headline show at Dreamland in Margate.

The Canadian musician is due to release the follow-up to his 2017 album ‘This Old Dog’ later this year, with the upcoming record set to be the first release on a new independent label which was founded by DeMarco himself last year.

It looks like DeMarco will celebrate the new record with a big outdoor show in Margate this summer, with the artist being confirmed as the headline act at the town’s Dreamland venue/amusement park on June 29.

DeMarco will also curate the full line-up on the day in collaboration with London promoters Bird On The Wire, and fans are promised “a day of music and rides” on gig day.

Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday (March 8) at 10am, priced at £36 plus fees – tickets will be available here.

This is DeMarco’s second UK show to be scheduled for 2019 so far – he’ll perform as part of All Points East festival’s packed bill on Sunday, June 2. Bon Iver will headline the east London event on that day.

DeMarco looks set, as ever, for a busy touring schedule in 2019: he was recently announced as part of the line-up for Iceland Airwaves Festival 2019.
