Get ready for 27 fresh Best Kept Secret 2018 acts, including SLOWDIVE, MOGWAI and PALE WAVES!
After a 20 year hiatus, British shoegaze legends SLOWDIVE gave a brilliant show at our festival in 2014 and this summer they will return. With songs of their great comeback album to play, it will without a doubt be even better.
Also returning are Scottish post-rockers MOGWAI, who gave the loudest show in Best Kept Secret history in 2014. Make sure to bring earplugs! Of course there are debutants as well. 2018 is the year of English indie pop band PALE WAVES, who described their songs as sounding like a cross between The Cure and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Not something you’d want to miss out on.
And there’s more! These excellent 25 artists will also play Best Kept Secret: Altın Gün • Bedouine • Blu Samu • Container • Dermot Kennedy • Gang of Youths • Hinds • Isaac Gracie • Jay Som • Jlin (live AV) • JOHAN • Let’s Eat Grandma • Los Pirañas • Nadah El Shazly • Nana Adjoa • Nilüfer Yanya • Pender Street Steppers • Pietju Bell • Pip Blom • Pitou • Tom Grennan • Vagabon • Venz • Wavves
