For Tame Impala, this is only the first European festival announcement for 2019. They were also announced for Shaky Knees 2019 in the US last month.

Tame Impala are a psychedelic rock band from Perth formed in 2007. The band began as a home-recording for Kevin Parker, who writes, records and produces the music. However, for the live performances of the band, a handful of talented musicians are present. Their debut album Innerspeaker was released in 2010 and received very positive reviews from the media. Their later albums Lonerism and Currents also received Grammy Award nominations for Best Alternative Music Albums. The band is known for delivering very energetic performances while they have performed at some of the best music festivals like Pitchfork and Glastonbury.
Hurricane & Southside 2019
Hurricane and Southside Festivals are two annual music festivals in Germany. Hurricane takes place at Scheeßel near Bremen, while Southside takes place simultaneously in the south of the country, near Tuttlingen. The two have an identical lineup. Hurricane was organized for the first time in 1997, while Southside took place for the first time two years later. The festivals are considered to be two of the largest festivals in the country, with more than 50,000 people attending each festival every year. Notable fact: in 2004, David Bowie suffered from chest pain during his performance at Hurricane Festival. He was later diagnosed with a heart attack, making that performance his last full concert.
