Organisers of London’s Citadel Festival have confirmed their first wave of acts for 2019.
Set to return to West London’s Gunnersbury Park on Sunday 14th July 2019, the one-day event will be headlined by Catfish and the Bottlemen, with the likes of Rag’n’Bone Man, Friendly Fires, DMA’s, Dream Wife, The Coronas and Balcony joining the band on the main-stage.
Currently gearing up for the release of their hotly anticipated third album ‘The Balance’, Catfish and the Bottlemen have become one of the biggest UK indie success stories in recent years. Their last album ‘The Ride’ peaked at No.1 in the Official UK Albums Chart, whilst the band recently sold out The SSE Arena, Wembley. Some of the group’s biggest singles to date include Kathleen, Cocoon, 7, Soundcheck and Longshot.
Brought to you by the same team as Wilderness Festival, Citadel has become a staple of the London festival scene in a relatively short space of time. The festival is renowned for its quality music, arts, food and drink offerings and attracts tens of thousands of revellers every summer. Launched in 2015, artists who have played Citadel in the past include CHVRCHES, Leon Bridges, Bombay Bicycle Club, Foals, Bonobo and loads more.
Alongside the musical programme, Citadel will once again be host to an extensive output of cultural and educational programmes, live comedy, fashion markets and will be home to a huge range of independent food and drink stalls.
