Barn on the Farm headliners announced

The first headliners have been announced for Barn on the Farm 2019 at Over Farm in Gloucester, and it’s set to be massive…

Three headliners for Barn on the Farm 2019 have just been revealed including BRIT Award-winner Sam Fender, Scottish superstar in the making Lewis Capaldi and Pharrell Williams’ protégé Maggie Rogers.

Marking the 10th anniversary of the music festival, Barn on the Farm will be held at Over Farm in Gloucester from Thursday 4 to Sunday 7 July 2019.

Other names revealed in Barn on the Farm’s first wave of artists include the brilliant Jade Bird, Grace Carter, Samm Henshaw, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Maisie Peters, Easy Life, Cavetown, Flyte and Lily Moore.

With Lauren Aquilina, Apre, Cassia, The Howl & the Hum, Rhys Lewis, JC Stewart, Vistas, Delilah Montagu, Kawala, Emily Burns, Millie Turner, Only The Poets, Sam Johnson, Sun Silva, Holly Humberstone, Aaron Smith and Michaela all also announced – and many more still to come.

Festival organiser Josh Sanger said: ‘This year is our 10th birthday and being such a landmark, we want to ensure we’re focussed on why we began this event in the first place…

‘We’re back to breaking new music and with three of the very best new artists headlining it’s set to be our biggest yet.’
The winner of the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award, Sam Fender’s UK tour is sold out and he’s soon heading to North America for slots at SXSW in Texas and headline dates in New York, Los Angeles and Toronto. You can’t have failed to have heard his ubiquitous ‘Play God’.

Scottish singer/songwriter Lewis Capaldi began creating a buzz in 2017 with his debut single ‘Bruises’ amassing millions of streams before releasing follow-up ‘Lost on You’. This year he reached Number three in the charts with ‘Someone You Loved’.

Maryland’s Maggie Rogers, meanwhile, takes the third headliner slot at Barn on the Farm, one of her only two festival appearances in the UK. It is well-documented that in 2016 she played her song ‘Alaska’ to Pharrell Williams. His enthusiastic reaction went viral, resulting in a major-label deal, an EP and a sold-out headlining tour all within a year of graduation.

Described as an ‘independent down-to-earth gathering of like-minded music lovers’, Ed Sheeran, Hozier, George Ezra, James Bay, Ben Howard, Rag’n’Bone Man, Tom Grennan and Tom Misch have all played at the festival in the last decade before exploding in popularity.
