Best Kept Secret Festival 2020

Recommended Posts

Based on previous announcements we are getting closer to the first official announcement for the 2020 edition. No bands are confirmed yet, but there are the usual speculations.

Most probable headliner right now seem to be Lana Del Rey and Nick Cave. Both do have sold out Amsterdam shows prior to the festival and are around at the time of the next BKS.

Nick Cave: 11.06. Rome, 12.06. no show yet, 13.06. no show yet, 14.06. Paris

Lana Del Ray: 07.06. We Love Green, Paris, 09.06. Verona, Italy - no confirmed dates afterwards

While Nick Cave fits music-wise pretty well, Lana Del Ray is (or was) booked by Friendly Fire who do BKS.

Another possible headliner could be the Pixies. They are also booked by Friendly Fire, have headlined BKS before and seem to play festivals next year (08.-11-07. Mad Cool, Madrid) with a new record out.

Possible co-headliners could be Caribou, returning and booked by Friendly Fire, who seem to be playing a lot next year and Robyn (05.06. at Northside, Denmark). 

Not many festivals have confirmed bands so far, but other bands being around on festivals within two weeks before and after BKS are: Franc Moody, Mew, Weezer, Motorpsycho, Rhys Lewis, Twin Atlantic, The 1975, The Hives, Giant Rooks, Aurora, Sofi Tukker, Wolf Alice, Zara Larsson, Post Malone.

Bands from Friendly Fires rooster, which might suit could be: Black Pumas, Blanco White, Charlie Cunningham, Dermot Kennedy, Fontaines DC, Freya Ridings, Genghar, Gerry Cinnamon, Hatari, Marika Hackman, Orville Peck, Rachel Sermanni, Ride, Scalping, Snapped Ankles, The Slow Readers Club and The Teskey Brothers.

No festival dates on the current Nick Cave tour though, so it would really surprise if he turns up at BKS. Agree that Lana del Rey is pretty spot on for one of the headline spots, other two are a bit of a mystery for me right now.

On the 7th and 8th of November there is the FifityFiftyLab 2019 festival in Brussels. The ides of the new showcase-festival is that 20 festivals together curate the program of FiftyFiftyLab, to present newcomers they like.

Best Kept Secret curate the show of Bristol based Scalping, making them look like a sure shot for next year's BKS.
