Doves

Doves headline the opening night of Gunnersville on Friday 6th September in what will be there last show of the year. After a decade long hiatus the band made a triumphant return at the beginning of this year, sparking fond memories of their two UK number one albums, an impressive two Mercury Prize nominations in three years.

These Manchester legends are sure to bring their famously electric live performance to Gunnersville. Expect an utterly absorbing and completely brilliant show, with anthems such as “Black and White Town”, “There Goes The Fear”, and “Kingdom Of Rust”. 

Echo & The Bunnymen

Joining Doves are Liverpudlian rock icons, Echo & the Bunnymen. The band’s fusion of post-punk and psychedelia has garnered them critical acclaim and multiple top 10 hits.

With almost four decades of music in their enviable repertoire, Gunnersville is set to be treated to all of their hits, including: ‘The Killing Moon’, ‘Lips Like Sugar’ and ‘Bring on the Dancing Horses’.

Badly Drawn Boy

Renowned singer songwriter and Mercury Prize winner Damon Gough, aka Badly Drawn Boy, is also heading to Gunnersville. With multiple top 10 albums to his name, including his film score for ‘About a Boy’, Gough has had an inimitable career.

Fan favourites ‘Something to Talk About’ and ‘Once Around The Block’ were made to be sang out in the leafy grounds of Gunnersbury Park.

White Flowers

White Flowers are a duo from Preston blending drum machine, guitar, synth and haunting vocals to create their own noir world. The duo’s debut album has been produced by Doves’ front man Jez Williams and is due for release in early 2020.

White Flowers released their ‘Glimmer’ EP  last October, which was celebrated by The Line Of Best Fit as “arguably one of this year’s strongest debuts”.

The band’s first single from their debut album, ‘Porta’, is due to be released this September.
