In a world full of boring and homogenized festival lineups it is really refreshing and exciting to see something that stands up shoulders above the rest.

This lineup takes a look back, goes into the future, continues with reunions and has a firm grip in the present.

This announcement reminds of a short time ago when waiting for a festival to release their lineup almost had us in stitches. That feeling had dissipated in recent years due to the lackluster look of the same artists crossing each other’s paths around the different festivals going on.

But this lineup reignited a passion for a festival setting, even though that math will show that there will be some conflicts with the set times BUT that is the beauty of walking around any festival ground. You will miss a few sets. You might be lucky enough to discover some new favorite bands. You will endure for your favorites and hopefully some great memories will be created.

Looking at this stacked lineup some (at least 15) of the can’t miss acts here are (in no particular order):

  • Radiohead
  • Lcd Soundsystem
  • PJ Harvey
  • Kamasi Washington
  • John Carpenter
  • Brian Wilson
  • Air
  • Cabaret Voltaire
  • Suede
  • Moderat
  • GOAT
  • Beak>
  • Beirut
  • Loop
  • Drive Like Jehu

Congratulations to the people behind the festival for a great lineup!
