The Strokes have been announced as the headliners of Best Kept Secret Festival 2020, the latest date on their packed run of European festival shows this summer.
Other big names on the line-up include The Avalanches, Weyes Blood, Belle and Sebastian and Catfish & The Bottlemen, Jarvis Cocker’s Jarv…Is project and Fontaines DC. Tickets are on sale here.
It comes after the band were previously confirmed among the latest artists to be added to the line-up for NOS Alive and Rock Werchter.
Meanwhile, The Strokes are expected to release new music this year. At the band’s New Year’s Eve show at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center they debuted a new song called ‘Ode To The Mets’ and frontman Julian Casablancas told the crowd: “Yeah, we have a new album coming out soon.”
He continued: “Surprise. 2020 here we come. We took the 2010’s – whatever the fuck they’re called – we took ’em off but now we’ve been unfrozen and we’re back.”
