Preview: Community Festival 2018

One of our favourite London festies is back for another year this July in Finsbury Park. Organised by Festival Republic, Community Festival is a recently new venture but the all-day rock and indie festival has proved to be popular in its inaugural year and is back in 2018 for another rendezvous. 

This year's line-up features mighty headliners Two Door Cinema Club at the top of the line-up and they are certainly a band not to miss. Inspired by Foals and The Maccabees, the Irish trio will bring their bouncing alt-pop tunes to Finsbury Park this July and you bet the crowd will go wild for it.

The Vaccines will also make an appearance on the main stage, fresh off the back of releasing their impressive fourth album 'Combat Sports'. Recent years have seen band line-up changes and an experimentation with their sound but 'Combat Sports' sees them take it back to basics and just have fun being in a band. Expect heavy guitars, catchy hooks and breathless excitement when The Vaccines take to the stage. 

Having amassed a faithful fan base in recent years, indie giants Circa Waves are the go to band for frenzied live shows and a good time. Their debut album 'Young Chasers' and last year's follow up 'Different Creatures' offers a steady back catalogue of hits for the crowd to chant back at them. Don't miss out on catching them at this year's Community. 

As well as the strong main stage line-up, the festival has a second performance area called the N4 Stage. With an aim of showcasing new music and supporting upcoming artists, both stages bring together people who love creating and listening to new music and that's what the whole festival is about. 

This summer you can catch Ten Tonnes, real name Ethan Barnett, on the N4 Stage. The younger brother of chart topper George Ezra, Ethan has just as much talent and credibility as his elder sibling in his own right. With his name lingering on the lips of tastemakers for quite some time, Barnett is selling out shows all over the place. He has also previously worked with The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach and The Maccabees' Hugo White. Expect all-embracing anthems and heavy doses of charm when Ten Tonnes steps up to the stage this year.

Tickets are available for Community Festival 2018 now.
