They were beat by the 1975, who played 44 festivals in 2019.
There are a seemingly endless number of music festivals nowadays. Festicket, the world's leading festival experience platform, have compiled a list of their 2019 "festival heroes". These artists have appeared at the most festivals in the past year.
Ireland's own Fontaines D.C. performed at a whopping 38 festivals globally, while The 1975, who seem to be perpetually on tour, played at 44 festivals over 30 different countries.
Festicket co-founder Zack Sabban said: “As more and more people invest in going to music festivals (whether that's at home or abroad), we've seen them become an even greater source of income for artists. But it isn't all about the upfront money. Festivals provide artists with a valuable platform to showcase themselves to potential fans who may then go on to buy a record or see them at their own headline shows. It's therefore little wonder the artists in this report went above and beyond to hit up every festival stage they could in 2019.”
