You wait years for a Mitski shows and then they all come along at once. The newest plan in her busy summer: headlining LEISURE, a brand new festival in Margate.

Launching with a first stage lineup of some of the much exciting and cult names around, Mitski, Soccer Mommy, Sorry, Nilufur Yanya, L’Rain and Highschool are the first acts announced. With a home at Margate’s iconic Dreamland and branded as a day of music and rides, it’s time to book a trip to the seaside.

Unlike the chaos of running between stages and managing clashes at other festivals, LEISURE’s two-stage, streamlined experience is one way they’re encouraging inclusivity. Building a laid-back atmosphere and rejecting the boys club that most festivals seem to come along with, maybe this is what we’ve all been looking for.

LEISURE is on 24 June, tickets on sale 18 March.
