Indie rockers Fatherson make for an incredibly exciting addition to 2019’s Edinburgh Summer Sessions as they join James at Princes Street Gardens on 15th August. The Ayrshire trio have toured with bands like Biffy Clyro, Frightened Rabbit, Twin Atlantic and Idlewild, and are no stranger to festival season, bringing their soulful genre-defying music to TRNSMT last summer. Releasing their third album ‘Sum Of All Your Favourite Parts’ to acclaim in 2018, a Fatherson set beneath Edinburgh Castle is sure to be unforgettable.
Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. aka Sam Duckworth, will bring his captivating, acoustic melody to the capital having been added to the bill, joining James and Fatherson on 15th August for a jam-packed night of music under the stars. Proclaimed as one of Britain’s ‘most compelling political songsmiths’ by The Independent, the singer songwriter has released six albums under his moniker and collected fans across the world with his unique storytelling song writing style.
Expertly mixing 80s new wave and goth pop with guitars, synths and pop melodies, The Ninth Wave, are a band like no other on the Scottish music scene. Formed through band members meeting on Glasgow’s musical Sauchiehall Street, the four-piece released the first half of their debut album ‘Infancy’ earlier this month with the second half due later this year. Garnering airplay on BBC Radio 1 and playing festivals from The Great Escape to TRNSMT to South by South West, The Ninth Wave can now add Edinburgh Summer Sessions to their very own history books, making their festival debut joining fellow Scots CHVRCHES and We Were Promised Jetpacks on 11th August 2019.
Summer Sessions in Edinburgh is set to be a real highlight of 2019’s music calendar with sold out shows from Courteeners and Lewis Capaldi, and headline sets from Florence + the Machine, Primal Scream, CHVRCHES, James and Madness underneath Edinburgh Castle in Princes Street Gardens. The festival is as exclusive chance to catch some of the world’s biggest artists in an intimate setting at an iconic landmark.
