Wolf Alice to co-headline UK festival

The north London quartet will close the final day of the two-day Margate jaunt

Wolf Alice have been announced as the first Saturday headliner for Margate’s By The Sea festival.

The ‘My Love Is Cool’ band join the already-announced Super Furry Animals and Wild Beasts, who will co-headline the first day of the festival, at the top of the bill. Wolf Alice’s companion headliner will be announced on July 1.

Taking place over two days (September 30 – October 1) at the Dreamland amusement park in the Kent seaside town, Wolf Alice’s appearance at By The Sea will be their first ever headline set at a festival.


A number of other names have also already been confirmed to play at the festival. Mystery Jets, The Big Moon and Bill Ryder Jones will all play on the Friday, while Jagwar Ma, Anna Meredith and Let’s Eat Grandma are set to appear on the final day.

Limited early bird tickets – priced at £30 – go on sale tomorrow (May 26), while day tickets (£37.50) are on sale the following day (May 27). Weekend tickets (£67.50) are already available to purchase here. Day and weekend tickets include access to the restored, recreated and retro-fitted Dreamland amusement park, with new rides set to be added.
