The rapid rise of Wolf Alice continues, as the North London four-piece can now add ‘UK festival headliner’ to their growing list of accomplishments.
The band will headline the Saturday night of the By The Sea festival in Margate this year – joining Welsh veterans Super Furry Animals and the returning Wild Beasts (who co-headline the Friday night) at the top of the bill. Wolf Alice’s companion headliner will be announced on the 1 July.
Also confirmed to be playing the festival are Jagwar Ma, The Big Moon and Bill Ryder Jones, amongst many others. The festival also hosts a theme park, vintage arcade room, an independent label market and various fringe events and after-parties.
By The Sea takes place at the Dreamland amusement park in Margate over the weekend of 30 September to 1 October.
Limited early bird tickets – priced at £30 – go on sale tomorrow (May 26), while day tickets (£37.50) are on sale the following day (May 27). Weekend tickets (£67.50) are already available to buy from the official site: www.bytheseafestival.com
