Sound of Summer 2019 Lacuna Common win the Sound of Summer competition

Lacuna Common win the Sound of Summer competition

They’ll be joining the Jack Daniel’s Presents show in Birmingham, as well as heading out on the DIY & Jack Daniel’s Presents mini-tour.

Back in June, we began the hunt for the UK’s best new band through the Sound of Summer competition, with Jack Daniel’s and O’Neill’s and now we can reveal that Oxford quartet Lacuna Common are the final winner!

The Sound of Summer competition kicked off with a series of 32 heats, which took place in O’Neills pubs across the country, before six semi-finals saw the list whittled down to six final acts. A panel of music industry experts then sat down to decide the final winner, naming Lacuna Common as winners.

As part of their incredible prize, they’ll be playing this year’s edition of Jack Daniel’s Presents alongside Biffy Clyro, as well as three regional shows in the run up. Check out the live shows they’ll be playing next month below, and to get your hands on free tickets to the DIY & Jack Daniel’s Presents mini-tour, simply head here.
