With more announcements to come director of Stendhal Festival Ross Parkhill said; "We are really excited how our line-up for 2019 is shaping up. Already we have an incredibly strong programme that is varied, eclectic and of a really high standard and we still have a lot more to announce. Basement Jaxx will have the whole of Karma Valley bouncing on the Saturday, there is no question about that. They have a huge catalogue of really well known tunes that will no doubt be a phenomenal way to bring the curtain down on what we are anticipating to be another stand out year for the event. Hothouse Flowers are one of the best loved bands to come out of Ireland and have been revered for a generation and they will certainly be a massive crowd pleaser at the festival this August. These acts are of course backed up by an incredibly strong line-up right throughout this first announcement. We have several acts form the Republic of Ireland who are making big noises across the border, wonderful acts from South Africa and The USA and as always we have the crème de la crème of our very own Northern Irish talent ready and waiting to steal the show. We will be announcing our second and final raft of musical acts and a whole lot more before the end of April, so there is still plenty more to come on what is already one of our finest, if not our very finest line-up to date."
