Tokyo World unleash first wave of 2019 lineup featuring Craig David, De La Soul, Kurupt FM and more

Posted on: 30 May 2019

Bristol festival favourite Tokyo World is returning to Eastville Park this September for another two-day spectacular jam-packed with some of the finest underground and electronic music around. The dust from the sold-out Love Saves The Day has barely settled, but the Tokyo World team have today hit us with a huge 2019 lineup announcement featuring the likes of Craig David, De La Soul, Kurupt FM, Hannah Wants and many more. Find all the info and secure your tickets below.



Tokyo World Festival 2019 lineup.

Tickets are already moving quickly for Tokyo World 2019, taking place on Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd September at Eastville Park, and with good reason. Craig David & TS5 and pioneering hip-hop group De La Soul are two of the biggest headline acts the festival has ever booked, and even artists of their calibre are in danger of being overshadowed by the quality of the rest of the programme.


Acclaimed East London rapper Ghetts will be returning to Bristol for the second time in 2019 to play the festival, while People Just Do Nothing stars Kurupt FM are locked in to come out of their early retirement and NaoNafe SmallzBig ZuuMs Banks and many more are also locked in.


Despite being predominantly a bass-heavy festival, Tokyo World has been sure to cater for Bristol's large contingent of house & techno fans, booking none other than Robert Hood to play the Hedonism stage as well as German dynamo Roman FlugelMarcel Dettmann and Eli Brown among others.


As expected, Tokyo World 2019 will be welcoming a huge cast of top-drawer dnb and bassline DJs and producers to Eastville Park in September, with Alix PerezPreditahWilkinsonRedlightRoyal TDJ QMy Nu Leng, Lenzman and Hybrid Minds among the standout acts. There's still much more to be announced in the coming months so keep it locked on for the latest news!
