Festival organiser Matt Harrap commented: “We’re extremely excited to announce our first wave of artists for this year’s show! Having artists of the calibre of The Kooks and the forever requested Bombay Bicycle Club coming to headline the event after many years of asking is truly humbling. Their sets will no doubt live long in the memory.
“And over the moon to have indie heroes Catfish and the Bottlemen return to Truck to close off Sunday night! I’m also thrilled to have Shame back in 2020 after being unable to perform last year, La Roux closing our Market Stage and, of course, indie royalty The Pigeon Detectives in the Nest.”
Bombay Bicycle Club will perform one of their first headline sets in years after returning from a hiatus to release their fifth album, ‘Everything Else Has Gone Wrong’, earlier this month.
NME‘s Hannah Mylrea-Hemmings wrote in a three-star review that the album “does a fine job of updating the beloved indie band’s trademark style”, however, “there are sometimes too many ideas jostling for attention.”
