Our Top 5 Support Acts To See This Year



We all love to see our favourite bands headlining the main stage and singing all our favourite songs, but we often overlook the support acts that come before them. Nipping to the loo, quickly grabbing a bit of merch or catching up with a friend during the support act is something we’ve all been guilty of! So we’ve decided to collate our favourite support artists who will be performing within the upcoming months.

Willie J Healey
Supporting Sundara Karma on their Liverpool, Coventry and London dates, Willie J Healy is the bit of indie-pop sunshine we all need before singing the night away with Sundara Karma. Effortlessly cool, his stand-out track ‘Lazy Shade of Pink’ from his latest album ‘People and Their Dogs’, is a slow-burner of laidback grunge and catchy lyrics; whilst new single ‘Grey’ took the BBC Introducing stage at Reading and Leeds this year by storm. To avoid missing out on hearing Willie J Healy’s brilliant new album as he supports Sundara Karma, book your tickets now!

Sunflower Bean
Alongside Wolf Alice on their Bristol, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Birmingham, Norwich and London dates, Sunflower Bean are the perfect, nonchalantly chill trio to get in you in the mood for Wolf Alice. Named as ‘NYC’s Coolest Young-Band’ by Rolling Stone Magazine, Sunflower Bean emulate rainy afternoons spent with friends unwinding as the soft, almost melancholic vocals of Nick Kivlen and Julia Cumming against garage-rock makes for a uniquely chilled-out sound – particularly in ‘Harvest Moon’.

Milk Teeth
Catch British punk-band Milk Teeth before Good Charlotte’s Southampton, Nottingham, Birmingham, Manchester and London dates as they scale the country on a major-venue tour. Channelling a ‘90s nostalgia that’s similar to Good Charlotte themselves, Milk Teeth are a youthful and contemporary interpretation of the UK punk scene; with punchy songs that take no prisoners and vocals that aren’t afraid to chant and yell, Milk Teeth are ambitious in their sound. With their latest, and debut, album ‘Vile Child’ having been released last year, Milk Teeth are ready to put on a show and celebrate alongside Good Charlotte; buy your tickets now to avoid disappointment!
