Two of the shining lights of modern alternative music will also play Temple Newsam next June. Get ready for Easy Life’s genre-bending anthems from debut album ‘Life’s a Beach’ and Sea Girls’ irresistible indie singalongs from new album ‘Homesick’ having blown fans away at Live at Leeds in 2018 and 2019. Also on the bill, the groovy electronic soul of Honne and the tongue-in-cheek bubblegum pop of Aussie duo Confidence Man.
Rounding off the first announcement is a host of top new musical talent, all of whom promise to be highlights of next year’s festival season. Alt-pop star Finn Askew, off-kilter indie gems Courting and indietronica superstar-in-waiting Porij sit alongside Leeds’ own bright young things L’Objectif, 60s-inspired New Zealander Molly Payton, Wrexham indie rockers The Royston Club and fast-rising Doncaster songwriter ADMT – you’ll be able to say you saw them all before they hit the big time.
