The huge shows add another string to Gunnersbury Park’s festival bow

There’s a new festival in town and it’s boasting some big-hitters on its line-up. Billed as “London’s new tented concert series”, Gunnersville is taking place in early September across three nights, and has scooped Doves, The Specials and You Me At Six as headliners. 

Taking place under a canvas roof in West London’s Gunnersbury Park, where Lovebox and Citadel will also unfold this summer, the concert/festival lovechild is a reasonably-priced (£35+ booking fee) alternative to some of London’s pricier events. For its first outing, Gunnersville has enrolled some great names - though, notably, so far does not include a single non-male act. 

With the announcement, You Me At Six have revealed that their show on 8 September will see the pop-punks play all of their singles in order - “from Take Off Your Colours to VI!” Alongside headliners, support acts across the three days include Ocean Colour Scene, The Blinders, Sundara Karma and Deaf Havana. 

Gunnersville promises to “make the summer just that little bit longer” with its shows, plus a tent filled with craft beers and street food. 

Doves play Gunnersville on 6 September, The Specials on 7 September and You Me At Six on 8 September.  

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 24 May and cost £35 + booking fee.
