Blood Orange, Aldous Harding, Marlon Williams, Let’s Eat Grandma and Goat Girl have been added to the BST bill on Saturday 13 July, alongside Florence + The Machine and The National.
They join already announced acts Lykke Li, Khruangbin and Nadine Shah. The day is set to be triumphant, with Florence Welch’s homecoming sharing the stage with one of the most highly rated live acts around, The National.
Musician and Producer Dev Hynes, a.k.a Blood Orange makes his anticipated return to BST after supporting regular collaborator Florence back in 2016. Hynes has worked with a who’s who of modern music, and his own searing, soothing, electronic-inspired tracks will no doubt be a highlight of the day.
Goat Girl also take on the BST stage with their growling guitar sound and drooling vocals. Buoyed by their critically acclaimed debut album, now is the perfect time to catch them in all their angsty, fiery glory.
New Zealand is responsible for two of the new additions to this stellar bill: folk singer-songwriter Aldous Harding, set to release her third album Designer in April, plays on the same day as Marlon Williams who combines folk, bluegrass, country and blues into his music.
Let’s Eat Grandma are two schoolmates who met at the tender age of five, both still in their teens, their 2018 album I’m All Ears was met with widespread acclaim. What they lack in years, they certainly make up for in talent.
