Suwannee Hulaween just posted a short, video revealing their 2018 dates…and a massive hint that points to Jamiroquai as their 2018 headliners. Toward the end of the video, the band’s familiar silhouette symbol briefly appears in the frame, suggesting that Jamiroquai will be performing at the sixth annual event. Watch the video below:

Famous for their hits “Virtual Insanity” and “Cosmic Girl”—and respected for their deeper cuts—the British funk and jazz heroes recently confirmed a show at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA on April 17th. Aside from their Coachella headlining performances (April 13 & April 20), these performances will mark the first time the group has played their own show in the United States since November of 2005.
About a year ago in the middle of January 2017, Jamiroquai announced their triumphant return after years outside the spotlight. In March of last year, the group released Automaton, a follow up to 2010’s Rock Dust Light Star marking the band’s eighth studio album. To complement their new album, the funk favorites embarked on a global tour in 2017, hitting Tokyo and Seoul in addition to major cities across Europe. However, North American cities were conspicuously left off of Jamiroquai’s 2017 comeback tour, leading many to hope that 2018 will see the group hitting the U.S.
After Coachella announced that Jamiroquai would perform at the 2018 California music festival, rumors of more North American tour dates began to grow as promoters on the West Coast, as well as band members themselves, heavily hinted at more headlining dates to come. The tactic of posting photos of the city with the Jamiroquai symbol was used for the later-confirmed San Francisco date and is currently being used to count down to the official announcement of a performance in New York.
