Larmer Tree Festival returns to its beautiful home on the Cranbourne Chase from 18–21 July, and the line-up set to be the most exciting yet!
Mercury Prize winner Kate Tempest is topping the bill and ready to take the Main Stage by storm. Plus folk-tinged acoustic singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti will be returning to Larmer Tree fresh from a 2-date stint at Wembley Arena, alongside the UK’s biggest-selling country-music act The Shires. Also added to the 2019 headliners are Australian party-starters The Cat Empire.
Southport’s indie-rock veterans Gomez will celebrate 20 years since their Mercury Award winning debut album, while critically-acclaimed Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstall makes a welcome return to the Larmer Tree Gardens. Tank and the Bangas will be getting the Festival on its feet with their unique New Orleans sound, and Jade Bird is sure to cement her place as one of UK’s hottest new musical talents.
And if you like big laughs alongside your big tunes, then the comedy line-up is all set to tickle some funny bones.Josie Long is one of the most respected talents on the comedy circuit. Joining her is host of The Mash Report and panel show regular Nish Kumar. The line-up also features Stuart Goldsmith, who returns to host another live recording of The Comedian’s Comedian podcast with guest Rob Auton. Regular co-host of The Guilty Feminist podcast Jessica Fostekew joins the bill, along with the winner of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny award Ivo Graham, and rising talent, Catherine Bohart.
Kids will be delighted to see children’s TV favourite Andy Day live on stage with his band, who will be bringing their best-loved tunes to the mainstage. And elsewhere they’ll have their own stand-up experience in the Comedy Club For Kids.
Heading up the thrilling Theatre, Talks and Poetry programme is Kate Adie, in conversation with Richard Osgood. Kate and Richard will discuss her life and work, cultures and war zones and will explore the changing perceptions of women in the media. Plus, BBC Radio 4’s Four Thought will be recording their hugely popular show on-site, alongside festival favourites The Antipoet, Living Spit and many more.
