Good grief – it’s March already.

As terrifying as it might be (for me, at least) that 2019 is speeding ahead, the plus side is that festival season is fast approaching!

Last month saw a tsunami of festivals announce their headliners and this season is shaping up pretty nicely! 

More acts are shortly to be announced, but I’m already sold on many of the line-ups as they are – we’ve got some acts that I’ve recently been getting in to, some old loves that I never got the chance to see live and others I’m simply curious about. The acts catching my eye include Foals, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Robyn, Caravan Palace, Our Girl, Don Broco, The Cat Empire and Honey Moon.

This month we’re sharing some line-up snippets, but we’ll be back with our full 12-page festival guide in May!
