Last week, too late to be included in last week’s Friday Five, the line-up for Belsonic was announced. Personally, i’ll be holding off until there are further announcements.

If I was going to go to one of the gigs announced so far, it would be the Kodaline/Tom Odell one. To be honest, i’m a bit surprised Tom Odell isn’t headlining that one instead of Kodaline.

Anyway, to get you in the mood for Belsonic, he’s a Top Five of the acts appearing.


1. Tom Odell – Hold Me
2. Biffy Clyro – The Captain
3. Kodaline – High Hopes
4. Queens Of The Stone Age – No One Knows
5. Imagine Dragons – It’s Time
