SCOTLAND's leading alternative music festival the Dirty Weekender are excited to announce that The LaFontaines will be joining them at the hotly-anticipated event.

The LaFontaines deliver a unique sound that fuses the guitar swagger of Kasabian, with the edgy hip-hop delivery of The Streets and the electronic-pop undertones of TwentyOne Pilots to create a style that pushes the boundaries of rock. The band’s 2015 debut Class was their first statement, reaching number one in the Indie Breakers chart the week of release and making the Top 10 in the Scottish chart.

They went on to tour with bands, including Anderson Paak, Twin Atlantic and All Time Low, as well as playing at major festivals including Reading & Leeds, Download, The Great Escape, 2000 Trees, T in the Park, Belladrum, Secret Garden Party, TRNSMT and Reeperbahn.

Rapidly becoming one of the North’s leading live acts, The LaFontaines released their follow-up album Common Problem last year to critical acclaim and saw their Glasgow headline show sell out within a week, receiving high praise from Kerrang who hailed them ‘Kings Of The North’

Taking place across four days in November (Thursday 22 to Sunday 25) at multiple venues across Kilmarnock, The Dirty Weekender also includes including headliners Liverpudlian heroes The Coral and Brit & Mercury Award-nominated Jake Bugg, Twisted Wheel, The Snuts, and Tom Clarke (The Enemy) - with many more to come.

Organised by MFM Events, The Dirty Weekender will be jam packed with some of the most exciting music from around the UK and further afield, with double the number of acts on the bill from previous years – more than100 artists.

With the country's music scene at a creative high, the energetic festival's ethos is to recognise the depth of young local talent while bringing the biggest names and live performances to music fans.

The Dirty Weekender runs across Kilmarnock in the Grand Hall, Bakers, The Bellfield Tavern, Tartan Suite and Fanny By Gaslight.

Tickets are priced from £60 for the full weekend and £29.50 for single days and are available to buy via Skiddle.
