News: Noel Gallagher Confirmed as First This Is Tomorrow 2019 Headliner


Noel Gallagher has been announced as the first massive headliner for This is Tomorrow 2019! He will be joined by a crop of indie royalty on Saturday 25th May 2019.

The artist’s discography is jam packed with festival ready tunes which are a perfect fit for This Is Tomorrow and its new home: Exhibition Park, Newcastle. Also on the bill are The Vaccines, Editors, Glasvegas and RedFaces.

Although This Is Tomorrow is only in it’s second year, the 2019 lineup builds on the foundations laid down by heavyweight past performers like Catfish and the Bottlemen, Thirty Seconds To Mars, Don Broco and Everything Everything…

Gallagher first made his name as co-frontman in Oasis (as we’re sure you’ll be aware). However, Noel’s career as a solo artist has also been rather prolific and he is seen as an absolute ledgend by many. 

His High Flying Birds project began during 2011. The debut album ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’, was released later that year. It contained several well received singles like ‘AKA… What A Life,’ ‘If I Had A Gun’,  and ‘The Death of You and Me’.

Shortly after, Noel went on to win several awards for the LP in 2012. Additionally he was recognised as NME’s Godlike Genius that year. Though the accolade referenced all of the accomplishments in his musical career so far, in a sense this was only just the beginning…

Two albums and countless live performances later, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are an act with a global presence. Noel and Co. will be truly unmissable at This Is Tomorrow 2019 along with the rest of its incredible lineup. The set promises to have it all, from Oasis classics to cuts from latest album ‘Who Built The Moon?’ (2017).

The Vaccines are next up, a band with a rare ability to maintain a signature style while simultaneously showing evolution. They first tore onto the scene in 2010 and their debut track ‘If You Wanna’ and still continue to release catchy indie pop songs with zany lyrics.

Editors, who will be there too, have stealthily risen to become one of the UK’s most dynamic alternative acts. They have several million combined sales from their six albums to date.

Scottish heroes Glasvegas, along with emerging bands like Yorkshire’s RedFaces and Whenyoung from Limerick will also perform. Newcastle band FEVA will inject some local talent into the festival. They are representing just a tiny portion of the North East’s burgeoning music scene.

Tickets for the festival go on sale from 10am on Friday 23rd November. More This Is Tomorrow lineup announcements are coming very soon so keep your eyes peeled!
