The iconic festival returns this June with a star-studded line-up – featuring Metronomy, Róisín Murphy, King Kong Company, Princess Nokia, Kojaque, Marc Rebillet and more.
Back for its 11th edition this Summer Solstice, Body & Soul has revealed the first headline acts on its 2020 line-up at a special launch event at Lost Lane, Dublin this evening.
Before revealing the line-up at the listening party, the festival's organisers stressed a new approach for 2020 – "embracing change through a wiser perspective" while also returning their roots. As such, this year's Body & Soul promises to be a smaller and smarter festival – centred around the "little things that make a festival great."
However, a smaller festival by no means equates to a less impressive line-up. As well as acclaimed international acts like Metronomy, Princess Nokia, Marc Rebillet, Khruangbin and Sampa The Great, Body & Soul will also host performances from some of the country's most exciting emerging and established artists, including Róisín Murphy, King Kong Company, Kojaque, Kneecap, Mango X Mathman, Alex Gough, Aoife Nessa Frances, TPM, Jape, God Knows, Hare Squead, Thumper, Clockworks, ELM, Alex Gough, Aimée, Conchúr White, Kitt Philippa, Kynsy, PowPig, Denise Chaila and Somebody's Child.
The festival returns to Ballinlough Castle, Co. Westmeath on June 19-21. For tickets and further information, see bodyandsoul.ie.
