We like to bring generations of alternative music fans together in one surreal setting, and never has that been truer than at Rockaway Beach 2020.

Joining The Jesus And Mary Chain, we’re very proud to announce the first ever festival headline performance from Fontaines D.C.. It’s the first time we’ve invited a band to headline ahead of even their debut album being released, but at no point was there ever a shred of doubt that it simply had to be Fontaines D.C. for next January’s show.

There’s only a few bands that come along with that inescapable fire in their eyes. The momentum behind them is undeniable. It just had to be done and we know you will stand with us on this.
Also, from a spot on BBC Sound of 2015 list SOAK captured the British imagination with the Mercury-nominated Before We Forgot How to Dream. The record won the Irish Choice Music Prize Album of the Year, setting her as an indispensable young voice capable of painting “a vivid portrait of teenage deep-thinking” (The Guardian).

Fronted by the IDLES-referenced Danny Nedelko,Heavy Lungs are also joining our programme – with their feverish live show. Not to mention returning heroes The Wedding Present and a heck of a lot more. We’ve still got one more headliner to confirm, and dozens more acts to announce as well as DJ’s, quizzes, film screenings and interactive games.
