Edinburgh's Hidden Door Festival has now announced the initial line-up for 2019.
Over four days & nights at the end of May/start of June you'll be able to experience the following in the iconic Leith Theatre:-
Thursday 30 May in partnership with The List, offers an eclectic opening night which makes a strong statement of intent to address the gender imbalance in UK music festival lineups, with a female-led roster of acts including Ray BLK, and universally acclaimed experimental pop duo Let’s Eat Grandma. Joining them will be rhyme-masters The Honey Farm, with Edinburgh’s underground, electronic duo Chuchoter and notorious Glasgow DJ Sarra Wild ending the celebratory bill.
Friday 31 May will see Hidden Door offer its first ever nine-hour show of seamless music from 6pm – 3am, bringing together some of the finest electronica currently being made in the UK with a live set from London-based George Fitzgerald fresh from his BBC Radio 1 residency, and Ninja Tune’s Nathan Fake taking us through til 3am alongside local duo Maranta and acclaimed producer and singer Kelly Lee Owens.
Saturday 1 June - TBC but expected to be another nine-hour marathon of top quality tunes and Hidden Door surprises.
Sunday 2 June sees the hugely popular US phenomenon Cigarettes After Sex light up the main auditorium of Leith Theatre for one final night with their distinct brand of euphoric and atmospheric crafted songwriting.
We'll aim to keep you posted as further details are announced.
