The festival will be making waves yet again.
Sea Sessions Surf & Music Festival continues to go from strength to strength. Having originally started back in 2008 as an after party for a Surfing Competition, the event has made itself one the foremost festival experiences in the country, having previously played host to the likes of Dizzee Rascal, Paul Weller and many more in the past decade.
Based on the coastline in Bundoran in Donegal, Sea Sessions has still stayed true to its roots whilst incorporated the more grand festival elements to it, and is now the holder of the top surfing competition in Ireland as well as hosting the world’s top skateboarders, BMX’ers and a host of other beach sports over the course of the weekend.
Set to take place from June 21st-23rd, the 2019 edition looks set to continue in a similar vein with today's reveal of the headliners in the shape of Sigrid, Clean Bandit and Two Door Cinema Club, all of whom are set to play Sea Sessions for the first time. With more acts still to be announced, they'll also be joined by Wild Youth, Hermitage Green, Le Boom, DJ Hype, Columbia Mills and Montauk Hotel.
Norwegian songstress Sigrid has emerged as one of one of the fastest-rising European talents of 2018, and will be no stranger to Irish shores having already played at The Olympia, Longitude and Electric Picnic this year, with a massive show at the 3Arena also penciled in for next year.
Completing the trio of headliners, Two Door Cinema Club's back catalogue of hits and three top-selling albums make them perfect festival fodder, while Grammy-winning Clean Bandit have rapidly become one of the hottest electronic bands in the world and look set to build upon that with their sophomore record What Is Love? due for release later this week.
“We’re delighted to have booked such a strong bunch of acts and we’ve a couple of surprises still up our sleeves," said Festival director Ray O’Donoghue. "Sigrid is a bonafide Pop-Star in the making, Clean Bandit have a bunch of huge hits and we’re big fans of Two Door Cinema Club. Last year was unbelievable and probably the best Sea Sessions yet, we’re hoping we can go one better again for 2019. Bring on the summer.”
