We’ve Only Just Begun Festival marks a stellar second year with Wyvern Lingo, April, Pillow Queens, Soda Blonde & many more

While the struggle to achieve gender balance in festival lineups has gained some momentum, with initiatives like Keychange and major festivals like Primavera making some progress, major festival lineups (here in Ireland too) are still sometimes lacking in female representation.

That was the social context that spurred the creation of We’ve Only Just Begun Festival in Whelan’s last year. Today, the festival has unveiled the full lineup for its 2019 event, which takes place between August 9th-11th.

It’s a superb lineup, featuring a diverse range of genre input comprising a large chunk of the most exciting acts currently emerging from the nation.

Wyvern Lingo, Pillow Queens and Soda Blonde make up the headliners, but there’s quality in depth throughout the bill.

Some highlights include new soulful singer April, Spoken word and R&B artist Gemma Dunleavy, rock group Jealous Of The Birds, London-based pop artist Fia Moon and Belfast dream pop outfit Beauty Sleep (pictured).

Here’s the full lineup.
