Gang of Youths adds Boston Calling music festival to tour itinerary

It’s gonna be a busy Memorial Day weekend for Gang of Youths.

Already scheduled to perform at the BottleRock Napa Valley festival in California, the band is now also confirmed for the Boston Calling music festival. Both events run over Memorial Day weekend — May 24 to 26, 2019 — and neither has revealed its full schedule.

Tickets for Boston Calling are available now.

This festival takes place at the Harvard Athletic Complex and features three outdoor stages plus an indoor arena stage. The lineup is a mix of music and comedy.

This is GOY’s third known festival appearance in the U.S. just during May. And they’re gonna be collecting a lot of frequent flyer miles — the three are in Boston, Napa Valley and Gulf Shores, Alabama. You can track all upcoming Gang of Youths concerts right here on Deepest Sighs.

Gang of Youths confirmed for BottleRock Napa Valley festival

The 2019 tour itinerary continues to grow for Gang of Youths. The band was revealed Monday as one of the performing artists on the final day of this year’s BottleRock Napa Valley festival in Napa, California.

The festival happens over Memorial Day weekend — May 24-26 at the Napa Valley Expo. Headliners this year include Mumford & Sons, Imagine Dragons and Neil Young. I don’t see anything yet on the festival’s web site indicating what time GOY will be on stage.

Most importantly, tickets for BottleRock go on sale this week. Three-day ticket sales start Tuesday (Jan. 8) while single-day tickets will be available on Thursday, Jan. 10. Get all the relevant ticket info on the festival’s web site.

BottleRock will be GOY’s second North American festival appearance of the year, and comes a week after they play the Hangout Music Festival in Alabama. They’re also doing the Laneway Festival in Australia starting later this month, and after the two announced North American festival, GOY has (currently) three European festivals on tap.

Gang of Youths to perform at Colours of Ostrava festival

We missed the news when it came out* a couple weeks before Christmas, but Gang of Youths has committed to play at the Colours of Ostrava music festival later this year.

The exact date of GOY’s performance isn’t known yet; organizers say they’ll reveal the schedule about a month before the festival. It runs for four days — July 17-20, in the city of Ostrava. For now, we’re listing the gig as July 17 in our Gang of Youths tour dates list; we’ll change it as needed when the schedule comes out.

Tickets for the festival are on sale now.

Colours of Ostrava has been happening every summer since 2002 and is the biggest festival in the Czech Republic. The venue looks interesting in that public domain photo above; it’s a former ironworks industrial site in the city.
