Pinkpop 2019 finally completed the line-up for its 50-th anniversary that will take place as usual at Megaland in Landgraaf, Netherlands from Saturday, June 8th through Monday, 10th. Five decades after its first occurrence, Pinkpop still remains a vital part of European festivals calendar, gathering numbers of huge rock and pop acts. This year, The Cure, Fleetwood Mac, Mumford and Sons will be the headliners.
You can find below the highlights of each day:
Joining Mumford and Sons, Jamiroquai, Elbow and George Ezra are the main acts for the first day. Still riding the wave of a very successful second album, the singer from Heitford (UK), George Ezra will without doubt deliver a joyful and passionate set.
Beside these huge rock and pop acts, two young soul singers will be present with the british Jacob Banks and Grace Carter. These two have been increasingly gaining attention in Europe for their mesmerizing performances and they will be interesting to watch!
From the punk side of the programme, Yungblud and Cage the Elepahnt will be there to assure a dynamic day. Be sure to catch them!
Mt. Atlas and Golden Earring coming back 40 years after their first gig at pinkpop will be the local acts.
The legendary The cure will be in good company, as The Kooks (remember their amazing show in Paris?), Lenny Kravitz and Die Antwoord will join them on the bill. No doubt that the crazy south-african duo will blow the stage!
All the way from UK, Miles Kane, White Lies and Blood Red Shoes will bring a bit of britrock with their performances. The indie rock singer Barns Courtney will also be there to add his own vision of indie, blues and rock with an American edge.
The local band Krezip will take the main stage, 19 years after their triumphant debut with their single I Would Stay in 2000.
Only 1 week before the drop of their next album Doom Days, Bastille set will certainly be a moment of great expectations! For the last day, again, British acts are numerous and all exciting. Bring me The Horizons and The 1975 will continue their festivals tour with impressive sets. We might even know a bit more of the second album of the lads from the by then, making everything even more interesting! Awarded with Critics’ Choice at last BRIT Awards 2019, you must not miss Sam Fender!
