Margate’s LEISURE festival have announced a new wave of names on the line-up, joining the likes of Mitski and Soccer Mommy on 24 June.

Clairo has been announced as joint-headliner alongside Mistski, who dropped her latest album Laurel Hell earlier this year. It is the only UK festival — outside of Glastonbury — to catch both headliners this summer.

Also newly announced are Dublin country-pop rising star CMAT, London-based producer Léa Sen, and Social Singing Choir, a Margate-based collective who’ve opened for Self Esteem and worked with the likes of Swim Deep.

Already announced alongside Mitski and Soccer Mommy are London singer-songwriter Nilüfer Yanya, North London indie band Sorry, Melbourne goth-poppers HighSchool and Brooklyn artist L’Rain.

This year’s festival follows the success of Band on the Wall’s 10-year anniversary 2019 event headlined by Mac DeMarco, and will fit 5,000 fans. Amusement rides, a roller disco and an arcade will all be open for visitors to enjoy alongside the best artists to soundtrack your sad-girl summer. 

LEISURE takes place 24 June at Dreamland, Margate. Tickets are on sale now.
