As one-day-municipal-festivals go, you’ll be hard pushed to find one more exciting that 2Q in 2019.
Taking place across 10 venues in Lincoln, the lineup this year boasts indie royalty in the form of Mystery Jets, Spector and Jaws. Neatly tied with those on the cusp of breaking through (inc. The Pale White, Do Nothing and Heavy Lungs), it is a lineup that promises so much.
London icons Mystery Jets need no introduction because of their impressive six studio albums. Likewise, B-town pioneers Jaws have recently released their third and most eclectic record yet (The Ceiling) and have a string of headline dates planned for later this year. Spector are responsible for a hell of a lot of indie ballads over the past half-a-decade, including Chevy Thunder and All The Sad Young Men.
Other notable names announced today include two of the finest live acts making a comeback: Vant and The Futureheads. Both are north east maestros, but have since flown their flag across the UK. After time spent away in recent times, 2Q will be the perfect stage for their respective returns to the live stage.
There are still 60+ acts yet to announce (including another headliner), which – if the first instalment is anything to go by – is a mouth-watering prospect.
Previous acts include Public Service Broadcasting, British Sea Power, Superfood and Circa Waves.
The third edition of 2Q is arguably the best yet and the stellar lineup is an indication of things continuing for the foreseeable. It is not only the lineup that is desirable; the city of Lincoln is picture-esque – especially as it edges towards the Christmas period.
Tickets are available now and cost £25 (plus fees).
