London’s Gunnersbury Park will welcome emo OGs You Me At Six, newly-reformed Manc favourites Doves, and resurgent Two-Tone pioneers The Specials as headliners for their newly announced ‘Gunnersville’ series of gigs.
You Me At Six have revealed that they’ll be using their set to “celebrate the new era of YMA6”. This of course entails the forward-thinking move of playing every one of their past singles in chronological order.
Taking place from 6th-8th September, the shows will be tented and intend to “blur the lines between festivals and concerts.” Apparently.
Doves headline the first night, with ‘special guests’ yet to be announced. The Specials follow on Saturday with fellow dad faves Ocean Colour Scene in support.
You Me At Six’s closing gig, meanwhile, will see support from Jimmy Eat World, Deaf Havana, Sundara Karma and The Maine.
Tickets go on sale on Friday 24th May, and will be available here.
