February 6, 2020 – In addition to The Killers, Beck, Deftones, The Lumineers, and Rival Sons, the beloved Scottish indie pop band Belle and Sebastian are coming to INmusic Festival #15, which will also be their first-ever concert in Croatia.

Jutarnji List writes that Stuart Murdoch and Stuart David founded Belle and Sebastian in 1994 in Glasgow, where they released their debut album, “Tigermilk,” in 1996 at the faculty record label Electric Honey in 1996, with a print run of just 1000 copies.

In the same year, “If You’re Feeling Sinister” was released for Jeepster Records, which also released their debut album in 1999 as well as the next three studio releases – “The Boy With An Arab Strap”, “Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant” and “Storytelling”. Four studio albums followed – “Dear Catastrophe Waitress” (2003), “The Life Pursuit” (2006), “Belle and Sebastian Write About Love” (2010), “Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance” (2015). ) – and the rarest 2019 release, that is, the original music for “Days of the Bagnold Summer,” starring Earl Cave, Nick Cave’s son.

Belle and Sebastian, who chose the band’s name after a television adaptation of the French novella about the boy and his dog, are one of the most important indie-pop bands and genre pioneers who have been passionately supported by the audience from the very beginning – even to the point that in 2005, they were officially chosen by the audience for the best Scottish band in fierce competition. The premiere of Belle and Sebastian in Croatia will take place as part of the jubilee fifteenth edition of the INmusic Festival.

Belle and Sebastian join the impressive lineup with The Killers, Beck, Deftones, The Lumineers and Rival Sons. 

At the end of last month, INmusic announced American hard rock band Rival Sons as part of the lineup. Rival Sons consist of Jay Buchanan, Scott Holiday, Michael Miley and Dave Beste. They formed in 2009 in Long Beach, California, and in addition to hard rock, they also play blues. Rival Sons have released six studio albums and one EP so far, and their 2019 album Feral Roots was nominated for two Grammy Awards (Best Rock Album of the Year and Best Rock Performance).

The INmusic Festival #15 will take place at the already well known Jarun lake in Zagreb from June 22 to 24, 2020.
