Sam Fender will headline a huge show at Finsbury Park next summer after four other London tour dates sold out.
The singer-songwriter and his band will be supported at the show on Friday July 15, 2022 by a hand-picked line-up including Grammy-nominated Fontaines D.C., Declan McKenna, Beabadoobee and Goat Girl.
Further support acts for the 40,000 capacity show will be announced across two stages soon.
Fender has described the newly-announced Finsbury Park date as his biggest headline show.
“Holy smokes! I’m absolutely psyched to be playing Finsbury Park," he said.
“What a mad night that’s going to be.
“Some huge artists have played there over the years, and it seems crazy that we will headline it next summer.
