The Kooks released their fifth studio album ‘Let’s Go Sunshine’ in September, which landed in the UK top 10.
Speaking about the headline slot, frontman Luke Pritchard 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.”
More acts are to be announced. Tickets are on sale now for £40.
