This Is Tomorrow

24th and 25th May 2019, Exhibition Park

THIS IS TOMORROW WILL RETURN IN 2019 WITH AN EVEN BIGGER LINEUP AND NEW VENUE

This Is Tomorrow have announced Foals and Noel Gallagher as two colossal headliners for 2019. The festival’s organisers have smashed it out of the park once again after bringing Catfish and the Bottlemen and Thirty Seconds To Mars to Newcastle last summer.

Both headliners have back catalogues filled with indie rock anthems which will feel so right in This Is Tomorrow’s new home: Exhibition Park, Newcastle. The two acts share the experimental spirit of Richard Hamilton, the pioneering Newcastle artist and inspiration behind This Is Tomorrow’s ethos. The festival will place on 24th and 25th May 2019…

Foals to headline this is tomorrow opening day in 2019

Foals have become one of the UK’s most sought after festival acts in recent years. The Oxford based rockers have previously headlined at festivals such as Reading & Leeds, Citadel and Benicassim.

To date, Foals have released four albums. Their career has been marked by the math-rock of debut ‘Antidotes,’ (2008) followed by the Afrobeat and techno inspired ‘Total Life Forever’ (2010).

Foals’ latter two albums ‘Holy Fire’ (2013) and ‘What Went Down,’ (2015) meanwhile proved that the world was theirs for the taking. These records produced behemoths such as ‘My Number,’ ‘Inhaler,’ ‘What Went Down,’ and ‘Mountain at My Gates’.

This is Tomorrow will be one of the first shows from the band after taking a break to create their fifth album. Foals are certain to expose expectant fans to new material on what will be a music event for the ages in Newcastle.

Also joining the band on this day are You Me At Six, one of the most adaptive alternative rock outfits on the planet along with Nothing But Thieves, The Pale White, Bad Sounds and more.

NOEL GALLAGHER TOPPING THIS IS TOMORROW’S SATURDAY BILL

Although This Is Tomorrow is only in its second year, the calibre of acts is incredibly high. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will headline on the Saturday.

Gallagher made his name as a former co-frontman in Oasis. However, in his own right, Noel’s solo career has been prolific.

The artist first branched out into the High Flying Birds solo project during 2011. His debut album ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ topped the UK album chart and won multiple awards.

The former NME Godlike Genius has since released a further two albums ‘Chasing Yesterday’ (2015) and ‘Who Built The Moon?’ (2017). He has also given countless live performances to legions of fans worldwide.

Although Noel remarked at his last Newcastle performance in the Metro Radio Arena that the city has “f**k all” going on, we think he meant it in jest. Especially considering how impressive the rest of the Saturday lineup looks.

Alongside him, there will be performances from The Vaccines, Editors, Glasvegas and more.
